Civil Technology: Surveying and Mapping Concentration A.A.S.
The Civil Technology program is being discontinued and is not accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year. Currently enrolled students will have access to courses and resources until they graduate in May 2019.
The University of New Hampshire and the UNH College of Life Sciences and Agriculture recently announced changes that will transform the Thompson School of Applied Science in response to the realities of higher education within our state and region.
You can learn more about the university’s plan and find answers to frequently asked questions at The Future of the Thompson School.
Beginning in the 2018-2019 academic year, the Civil Technology: Surveying and Mapping Concentration program will no longer be accepting new students. Current Thompson School students in this program will continue to have access to the same high-quality education and resources until they graduate in 2019.
As land values increase and the need to use our natural resources efficiently while protecting our environment becomes more critical, the role of surveyors is expanding. The Surveying and Mapping concentration contains a core sequence of six courses (from Introductory Surveying to the Legal Aspects of Surveying) that continuously challenge students to improve their technical knowledge, computer skills, and field competency. Using electronic field measuring equipment, computers to create and plot maps, satellite positioning technology, and laser scanning, the surveyors and mappers of today are at the forefront of acquiring, analyzing, and managing land information. Graduates are prepared to sit for the Fundamentals of Surveying exam as a first step in getting licensed as a land surveyor in New Hampshire.
Licensed land surveyor, DOT engineering technician, GIS technician, land-development planner, construction surveyor, or GPS technician.
