EGR 131 -  Elementary Surveying  

Credit Hours: 5, Contact Hours: 5

Division: Science Math

This course is designed to satisfy the elementary surveying requirement for a student entering engineering. In this course students will learn the theory involved in plane and geometric surveying including both linear and angular measurement, differential leveling, trigonometric leveling, traverse computations, electronic distant measurements, GPS mapping, topographical mapping and the design of horizontal and vertical curves as related to construction surveys. Students are expected to perform lab experiments in which they demonstrate their knowledge of the concepts learned in lecture, incorporating the basic skill learned in lecture to field settings. Care, adjustment, and use of basic surveying instruments: leveling, taping, horizontal angle measurements, traverse surveys, use of EDM's, GPS usage, topographic mapping, and layout of horizontal curves. Computer software will be used throughout the semester. Group 2 course. Critical Thinking - Direct.
