What will I learn?

The ABET-accredited Surveying Engineering Technology curriculum stresses the technical, theoretical and legal aspects of surveying, with a special emphasis on the importance of researching case law to adequately perform a land survey or aid judicial authorities in resolving boundary disputes. A secondary focus is the application of geospatial mapping technologies for depicting the characteristics of natural resources and infrastructure evaluations.

Program Objectives

The Surveying Engineering Technology program expects that: Graduates will become licensed surveyors and/or GIS specialists; Graduates will be able to take on supervisory roles in their firms. Some graduates will start their own surveying practice; Graduates will be able to apply and expand upon their undergraduate-level surveying preparation. This will be accomplished through continuing education and becoming involved in regional and national professional societies such as NJSPLS and ACS.

Learning Outcomes

Graduates of this program are eligible to sit for the Professional Engineer’s examination in New Jersey with the appropriate experience, as determined by the New Jersey Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors. They also will gain: An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of their disciplines to broadly defined engineering technology activities; An ability to select and apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies; An ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes; An ability to design systems, components or processes for broadly defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives; An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team; An ability to identify, analyze and solve broadly defined engineering technology problems; An ability to apply written, oral and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature; A knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; An ability to utilize modern measurement technologies to acquire spatial data; An ability to utilize industry-standard software to solve technical problems; An ability to apply technical concepts to the design and implementation of measurement systems to meet project requirements; An ability to design and implement procedures, and analyze data for conformance with precision and accuracy requirements; An ability to carry out or supervise surveying activities and processes such as measurements, positioning, mapping, boundary determination and geographic/land information systems.
