Bachelor in Surveying Engineering
Almost all economic and societal activities begin with land and property – whether you intend to build houses on it, develop it for commercial use or set up recreational areas and nature reserves. Surveying and real estate management, land development and management and land valuation – all of these are needed to ensure transparent structures and undertakings.
Surveying engineers are diversified professionals who record geo-data using a range of high-tech equipment such as electronic tachymeters, high-precision satellite receivers (GPS), laser scanners and trackers. They learn also to apply modern processes and methods such as photogrammetry, geo-information systems and web services when it comes to documenting and visualising data.
In their specialist field, surveying engineers perform many different tasks depending on the type of project they are responsible for, and they need to coordinate their work with other engineering specialists and authorities. Therefore, they gain knowledge about general surveying as well as structural and business expertise.
