Surveying (SRVY)

SRVY 1315

Surveying Calculations I

CRT HRS:3   LEC HRS:3   LAB HRS:0   OTH HRS:0

This course is an introduction to the mathematics used in surveying and mapping, eg., algebra, plane trigonometry, and plane, solid and analytical geometry.

Prerequisite: DFTG 1409, MATH 1414 or TECM 1303.

SRVY 1341

Land Surveying

CRT HRS:3   LEC HRS:2   LAB HRS:4   OTH HRS:0

This course is a study of the measurement and determination of boundaries, areas, shapes, and location through traversing techniques. Instruction will be provided in a variety of adjustment methods using programmed and non-programmed hand-held calculators and computers. Methods of traversing and adjustment of errors according to prevailing and applicable professional standards will also be covered.

Prerequisite: SRVY 1413.

SRVY 1342

Global Positioning System Techniques for Survey/Mapping

CRT HRS:3   LEC HRS:2   LAB HRS:4   OTH HRS:0

This course is an introduction to Global Positioning System (GPS) in surveying and mapping activities. Major topics include structuring a GPS system; designing a GPS data collection project; using GPS data collection equipment; collecting and processing GPS data; and correcting data errors.

Prerequisite: SRVY 1413 and DFTG 2430.

SRVY 1380

Cooperative Education

CRT HRS:3   LEC HRS:1   LAB HRS:0   OTH HRS:20

This is an intermediate course with career-related activities encountered in the student's specialization offered through an individualized agreement among the college, employer, and the student. Under supervision of the college and the employer, the student combines classroom learning with work experience. This course includes a lecture component.

Prerequisite: SRVY 1315, DFTG 2421, DFTG 2419, DFTG 1371.

SRVY 1413

Plane Surveying

CRT HRS:4   LEC HRS:3   LAB HRS:3   OTH HRS:0

This course is an introductory overview of surveying equipment and measurement techniques used in mapping. Emphasis will be placed on leveling and traversing for preparing a map.

Prerequisite: DFTG 1409.

SRVY 2339

Engineering Design Surveying

CRT HRS:3   LEC HRS:2   LAB HRS:4   OTH HRS:0

This course is a study of the theory and field methods of surveying alignments, to include highway routes, pipelines, utility and waterway construction, transmission lines and site stakeout. It also includes the study of horizontal circular curves, parabolic curves, areas, and earthwork volumes.

Prerequisite: SRVY 1341, DFTG 2421, DFTG 2430, and SRVY 1342.
