Civil Technology: Surveying and Mapping Concentration (A.A.S.)

http://colsa.unh.edu/tsas/ct/surveying-and-mapping

As land values increase and the need to use our natural resources efficiently while protecting our environment becomes more critical, the role of surveyors is expanding. The Surveying and Mapping concentration contains a core sequence of six courses (from Introductory Surveying to the Legal Aspects of Surveying) that continuously challenge students to improve their technical knowledge, computer skills, and field competency. Using electronic field measuring equipment, computers to create and plot maps, satellite positioning technology, and laser scanning, the surveyors and mappers of today are at the forefront of acquiring, analyzing, and managing land information.  Graduates are prepared to sit for the Fundamentals of Surveying exam as a first step in getting licensed as a land surveyor in New Hampshire.
