The land surveying minor (reference number 405) will provide the student with the basic knowledge and skills needed to accomplish land surveying tasks for entry-level employment. These tasks include boundary surveys, topographic mapping, leveling, stakeouts, traversing, field note taking, distance and angle measurements, plus proper techniques and use of surveying equipment (total stations, theodolites, EDMs, and levels).
Kentucky is currently reviewing its requirements for licensure as a land surveyor. As those requirements change, the requirements for the minor in Land Surveying may also be changed. Contact Prof. Gallagher for the latest information.
