Aims

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.
