This Department was established in 2008. The Surveyor plays an active and important role in project development, drafting and design in different technological sectors, working closely with the designers and engineers. Surveyors can work in engineering projects with government, private developers, contractors, and public utility companies.
This department helps students to cover the principles and techniques of field measurements and adjustments, boundary, topographic, geodetic, route and construction surveys. It allows students to develop maps from field measurements, design and layout construction projects, plan subdivision developments, and establish horizontal and vertical control using satellite geodesy. Students also cover topics from civil, architecture and construction engineering, including structures, fluid mechanics and the construction of highways.
