It is necessary for surveyors to have an understanding of the design and survey requirements for a variety of engineering construction projects. Surveyors are required to understand the contractual arrangements, the design and planning methods, and be able to set-out engineering designs for construction projects. Surveyors, as professional advisers, must exercise due care and diligence in carrying out duties and be able to minimise the risk of problems and errors associated with major construction projects.
Specific applications of the principles and techniques for construction surveying are applied to a range of engineering projects in this course. The main emphasis will be on the practical application of construction surveying techniques required for engineering and land development projects. Just as importantly, it is essential that surveyors understand the engineering principles and design of engineering works.
