Survey Engineering Colleges and Schools in the U.S.

Instruction in survey engineering is available at both 2- and 4-year colleges. Programs are available specifically in survey engineering and technology; instruction in surveying may be included as part of a larger program in a field like construction management. When choosing a school for survey engineering, students often consider the types of degrees available, the type of institution, program length, career goals and cost.

School Selection Criteria

Consider the following when looking for survey engineering schools:

  • Prospective schools should offer quality hands-on training.
  • Because they are only two years and generally are offered through local, public community colleges, an associate's degree tends to be a less expensive option for students seeking a degree in survey engineering.
  • Graduates holding B.S. degrees in survey engineering have access to more employment opportunities in survey engineering and management in the public sector, private civil engineering companies and surveying firms.
  • Certificate and continuing education programs are also available and are commonly offered through community colleges and can be completed in less than a year.

Completion of surveying engineering programs result in certificates and degrees from the associate's level to the doctorate level. They typically involve a significant amount of hands-on training and coursework in mathematics.
