Land Surveying Bachelor's Degree (LS.BAS)

Land Surveying Bachelor's Degree (LS.BAS)

The Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Land Surveying prepares students for work as professional surveyors, and meets the educational requirements for surveyors.

Graduates also are prepared to take NCEES exams (National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying) that are required to obtain professional licensure in land surveying.

Bachelor's degree coursework includes fundamental principles of civil engineering, construction, and site design, as well as skills required to operate state-of-the-art surveying equipment and computer software. 

In addition, students gain knowledge of boundary resolution, subdivision design, geographic information systems (GIS), and global positioning systems (GPS).

Students participate in experiential learning through cooperative education in each year of the bachelor's degree program. 

A surveyor enjoys diverse job responsibilities. Many surveyors work outside for surveying firms collecting data, establishing control points, and determining boundary locations. Others work inside at a surveying firm, a civil engineering office, or in an architecture firm, helping with site design activities and developing plans while using the field data.

Surveyors may work on their own or with firms specializing in construction​, architecture, or engineering. Surveyors also work in private industry or work for the public with responsibilities including planning and zoning, transportation, land development, forensics, boundary control, geomatics, or law.

Graduates of the bachelor's degree program have the knowledge and skills needed to establish their own company or work for a larger firm as a land surveying technician, professional land surveyor, or survey director.
