This minor is designed to provide students with perspective and skills to pursue a successful career in surveying or a surveying related field. The focus is on courses related to surveying such as photogrammetry, global positioning systems, U.S. Public Land Survey System, legal principles of surveying, and project design in surveying. Enrollment in this minor is open to all engineering and non-engineering students.
The Land Surveying Minor, completed co-incident with a Civil Engineering or Construction Engineering Technology degree, is designed to satisfy the land surveying curriculum requirements established by the Montana Board of Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyors to be eligible to take the Fundamentals of Surveying (FS) Exam. Students from other major degree programs interested in pursuing professional land surveyor licensure should contact the Civil Engineering Department before enrolling in the Land Surveying Minor.
