Surveying for Civil Engineering


This module will develop competency in surveying and setting out for Civil Engineering projects using the Level and Total Station.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Understand and apply the theory and principles of traditional and modern surveying/setting out techniques including linear and angular measurement, coordinates and feature location, tacheometric techniques. 

  2. Choose appropriate instrumentation / techniques for a given surveying / setting out scenario.

  3. Develop setting out data for horizontal and vertical curves and coordinated developments.

  4. Have a basic knowledge of the theory and use of total stations and associated software.

  5. Partake in practical field exercises in levelling, sightrails, traversing, coordinate setting out and detail surveying. 

  6. Produce longsection and topographical survey drawings on CAD.
