CEG2712 : Engineering Surveying II
- Offered for Year: 2017/18
- Module Leader(s): Dr Nigel Penna
- Lecturer: Mr Philip James
- Owning School: Engineering
- Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
|Semester 2 Credit Value:||10|
The aim of the module is:-
To provide an introduction to engineering surveying computations and error analysis.
To further develop skills in fundamental survey observations and teamwork.
To place theory into context through a series of engineering surveying case studies.
This module introduces students to the computational procedures utilised in modern engineering surveying practice. Horizontal and vertical control schemes, detailing and engineering setting out are all introduced in the lecture programme. Context is provided through example case studies of major engineering surveying projects. Supporting practicals, that complement the theory taught in lectures, provide students with hands-on engineering surveying experience using our extensive range of contemporary instruments.
Outline Of Syllabus

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The examination is an appropriate way to assess both theoretical understanding and problem solving skills under time-constraint as required in industry. Projects enable more realistic engineering surveying problems to be set and the student’s understanding to be assessed. Satisfactory participation at each of the four practical sessions is rewarded by marks in order to ensure students gain hands-on experience, thereby building confidence and reinforcing the theory from the lectures.
