This programme is designed to prepare students to enter the profession of Surveying. Students will be able to use open and closed traverses, location of topographic detail for the preparation of plans, layout of construction works, and the invert level installation for civil works. The students will be exposed to the uses and precision of surveys, distance measurement, the level, the transit, angular measurement, differential and profile levelling and fundamentals of construction surveys. Emphasis is placed on experience with EDM and electronic tachometer instruments and processing field data from data collectors through the computer to print media. Students are prepared to further studies leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree in Surveying. Licensing Opportunities: Successful students are encouraged to take the local Surveying Licensing exam at the Survey Department of the Government of the Virgin Islands which will qualify them to demarcate property and perform topographical surveys.
