Land surveying is the technique, profession, and science of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional position of points and the distances and angles between them, commonly practiced by licensed surveyors, and members of various building professions. These points are usually on the surface of the Earth, and they are often used to establish land maps and boundaries for ownership, locations (building corners, the surface location of subsurface features), or other governmentally required or civil law purposes (property sales).
This two year Higher Diploma in Land Surveying provides students the in-depth knowledge of engineering, architecture, and geography skills they need to be able to establish boundaries of land, water, and airspace in order to determine ownership, development, and use.
