Unique Aspects of the Geomatics Technology Program
Students can double major and earn degrees in both Surveying
Technology and Civil Engineering Technology by simply
completing four extra classes.
Graduates earning the Associate in Applied Science degree
have several transfer opportunities including Bachelor of Science
programs in Geomantics, Civil Engineering Technology
and Construction Management.
Graduates are prepared to enter both public and private design,
construction, and mapping industries, which helps ensure
that the majority of graduates are able to find jobs in their
chosen field of study.
The surveying technology faculty believes in education both
inside and outside of the classroom. Students participate in
rigorous academic challenges in class while learning fundamentals
and completing advanced hands on projects using the
Students have annual opportunities to interact with professionals,
tour construction sites and projects and to attend conferences
and expositions off-campus with faculty.
Since 2000, our students and faculty have taken architectural
tours in London, Paris, Washington D.C., Charleston, S.C. and
New York City. They have explored engineering wonders such
as the Hoover Dam in Nevada, the Central Artery/Tunnel
project in Boston, MA, the Biltmore estate in Asheville, N.C.,
the Arthur Ravenel Jr. bridge in Charleston, S.C., the Brooklyn
Bridge in New York City, the Nationals Baseball Stadium in
Washington, D.C., and One World Trade Center in New York City.
