The mission of the Department of surveying Engineering is to Embracing new ideas, methods, changes, promoting inspiration, innovation, inventiveness, and risk-taking. Instill in students an appreciation of learning and the need to remain abreast of a very fast changing technology throughout their career. Students will be successfully able to integrate the fundamentals of many scientific aspects, such as mathematics, statistics, geodesy, space geodesy, image processing, civil works  and many others to develop innovative solutions to complex technological problems through creating an awareness of the persistent concepts in surveying and their realization in current platforms and tools.

Students are trained to practice as professional engineers or enter graduate programs of study in surveying engineering. This grounding includes instilling in the students a positive reception of ethical and professional standards in order to be competent to work hard as members and leaders of multidisciplinary teams through effective communication with members both inside and outside of their profession. The groundwork comprises possessing excellent communication skills, outshining in multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams, and having an appreciation for non-technical disciplines.

To keep the SURV curricula and pedagogy up-to-date, the department launched a regular assessment and articulation process to identify the needs and evaluate the program outcomes. The department encourages contribution in workshops, conferences, and seminars that are relevant to its curricular and pedagogical needs and that are likely to lead to appropriate change.

The school provides laboratory environment that is attractive, serviceable, and promotes a sense of community among students in conjunction with guaranteeing that the sate of the art laboratory facilities are functional, available, and accessible to the students.

At present, the department offers the following programs:

Bachelor of Science in Surveying Engineering (SURV)

Master of Science in Surveying Engineering (MSURV)

Domain of Work

Graduates with a degree from the SURV department will have best job prospects in the following fields: Topometric surveying, Cadastral surveying, Topographic surveying, Construction surveying, photogrammetry, Remote sensing, Quantity surveying, Geographic Information systems for public and private engineering market, GIS research organizations, earth related projects consultants.
