Land Surveying Department

Diploma in Land Surveying

Land Surveyors work with engineers, architects and builders to produce precise descriptions (surveys and maps) of surface features of the Earth. Land Surveyors perform a variety of vital tasks such as boundary surveys, topographic mapping and construction staking.

This full time programme caters to students who serve an interest in the art and science of establishing or reestablishing corners, lines, boundaries, and monuments of real property.  Students are exposed to one month field exercise upon successful completion of the first year of the programme. There is an established partnership with the Guyana Lands and Survey Commission.
