Course content

This course brings high quality surveying and positioning and geospatial information analysis and management together. With the continuous demands of the construction world and the development of infrastructure to support communication, utilities and transport there is a need for the expertise of the engineering surveyor.

The specialist skills and knowledge of the engineering surveyor are often needed from the initial planning stages right through the construction stage to the end of a project. The role of the engineering surveyor does not stop then, as monitoring for the short or long term movement or deformation of infrastructure, buildings or ground may be needed for safety or other purposes.

This course has developed from the previously successful MSc courses offered at the University of Nottingham in the fields of surveying, geodesy and more generally geomatics.
