Program Description:

The Land Surveying Certificate provides the opportunity for students to develop skills, knowledge, and abilities for entry level and intermediate positions in the land surveying and construction industry. Students successfully completing this certificate will have the technical background to assist registered surveyors and civil engineers in completion of project tasks. The certificate reflects a strong emphasis in state of the art surveying instrument operation, computer aided design drafting, and procedures for advanced construction layout control.

Students who successfully complete this certificate will develop a solid foundation in surveying and will be prepared to work at entry level with land surveyors and/or continue studies and transfer to universities to prepare to take the Certification for Land Surveying Technicians exams.

Career Opportunities:

Transfer Pathways:

Students intending to transfer and complete a bachelor’s degree need to make early decisions concerning an academic major and a transfer destination. Statistics show that students who make these decisions early are more likely to persist to graduation than their undecided counterparts. Students planning to transfer credits earned at Macomb are strongly urged to see a counselor or academic advisor as early as possible in their college careers.
