Land surveyors play an essential role whenever an individual or company purchases a property to develop it. Land surveyors are responsible for mapping and measuring a property’s land to establish property boundaries. They also provide information about the property’s topography and existing buildings or improvements. Land Surveyors can give their clients precise measurements and data about a property, and they’re regularly employed for construction, engineering, and mapmaking projects.
Thus, this certificate course in land surveying is being offered considering the current and future pace with which the construction projects are being initiated. This skill-based course gives modern knowledge and hands-on skills on the latest land surveying instruments and techniques. The trainees will be provided with essential technical skills to carry out necessary land surveying operations. Apart from the major emphasis which lies on learning technical skills used for land surveying in construction industry, the focus will also be on communication and soft skills to make sure that trainees are able to explain their ideas and work effectively while working on site. The potential candidates for this course are the ones who are already pursuing their careers in the construction industry or are planning to start one.
You will learn about surveying and its types as well as its application at different stages of construction project. You will also learn to operate different surveying instruments such as theodolite, total station and auto-level. This course gives you an opportunity to build a strong foundation in the domain of land surveying and prepares you to work on multiple construction projects by designing maps and contours. Though the course also focuses on theoretical concepts, but unlike conventional courses most of the time you will find yourself working practically and acquiring skills necessary for the field and employment.
The program features:
Students completing this course will have opportunities to work inside the country and in the fastest-growing construction industry in the Middle East. Upon completion of this course, the potential job opportunities include but are not limited to:
The Department of Civil Engineering Technology at National Skills University Islamabad has introduced this certificate course with ten modules. Each module has been prepared by professionals working in the survey field. These modules are designed keeping in view the employer's requirement in order to cater the job deficit. The primary focus is to provide students with the necessary hands-on skills and abilities of surveying techniques.
