Course description

A continuation of the beginners’ course in surveying. It includes the basic surveying concepts and methods of measurement, and the basic equipment, with an emphasis on levelling, which has a major role in Civil Engineering projects. Much of this is introductory, while the Field Data Collection course CES1204 goes into more depth in some of the same aspects.


  • The purpose of this course is to reinforce what is meant by surveying, both theoretically and in practice.
  • To interest the student in further methods of measurement and their purpose.
  • To particularly interest the student in the level instrument as a means of measuring difference in height.
  • Team work.
