Field Survey Technician

This program prepares students for work as a field survey technician, starting with “chain person” and advancing to “instrument person” or “party chief.” Students learn field survey techniques, calculation, and office skills through extensive hands-on training using a variety of up-to-date instruments, including total stations with data collectors, hand-held calculators, and computers.

Group projects in the classroom and in the field develop both experience and leadership skills. Projects involve all aspects of work, from planning, measuring, and taking field notes.

Transfer credit from other institutions is considered upon validation of transcript and course work.
