Surveying Laboratory

The Surveying Laboratory has a wide variety of modern surveying equipment, such as GPS-based surveying equipment, total stations, theodolites, and automatic levels for basic instructional and research purposes. Undergraduate students use the laboratory as an integral part of their surveying coursework and obtain any topographic information that can help their capstone design projects, such as highway design and land development. Student use of the lab is preceded by appropriate safety training and instruction on the use and care for the equipment.
