Undergraduate Certificate in Surveying Engineering Technology
The 100% online Undergraduate Certificate in Surveying Engineering Technology provides students with a solid foundation in core competencies of surveying. An undergraduate certificate differs from a bachelor’s degree in that the curriculum is focused on the subjects that will benefit your career and show employers proof of practical skills.
This program is ideal for:
- Surveying professionals with a degree outside of surveying engineering technology and their path to licensure requires a core group of surveying classes
- Professionals where a degree is not required for licensure but instead a core curriculum is necessary
- Those looking for a stepping stone into the online B.S. in Surveying Engineering Technology
Note: This program is only available online and not on campus.
The following core courses are required (9 credits):
- SVT 101: Basic Surveying Field and Office Processes (3 credits)
