Course Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course is about 1/3 engineering science consisting of error theory, principles of error correction, geographic information systems, area computations, coordinate geometry and principles of modern surveying technology. The remaining portions of the course emphasize surveying practice and measurement.

 

COURSE JUSTIFICATION/RATIONALE

This course will expose students to advanced methods used in measuring land area, preparation of map, elevation of point, setting out works for constructional purpose

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of this course, the student should be able to:

·        Collect personal data, process and transform them into interpretable forms such cadastral plans, site plans, topographic maps, profiles, etc.

·        Collect appropriate data and produce suitable design schemes in civil and building engineering fields

·        Critically monitor any deformation in form of vertical settlement, shift and tilt that may occur on any civil and building engineering works, during and after completion of their construction.

·        Work closely with related professionals such as land surveyors, architects, physical planners, etc. to accomplish tasks within inter-related disciplines.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

A student on completing this course is expected to:

·        Critically analyse and interpret civil and building engineering design schemes on paper and transform them into physical reality on the ground in form of setting out.

·        Apply common surveying equipment in setting out structures in building and construction industry.
