BSc in Land Surveying Engineering*

Programme Description

Science of Land Surveying Engineering is the science of mapping and demarcation of the built and natural environment and the terrain of the earth’s surface. Scientist Engineer Surveyor records and places with great accuracy the boundaries between properties and among others, composes and creates developments and participates in construction projects that require great accuracy and detailed design.

During the first two years students are introduced to the basics of the science of Surveying Engineering and taught at a high level, all necessary Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science, to acquire all the necessary knowledge for the following years and the more complicated subjects of Surveying Engineering. The Bachelor of Land Surveying Engineering  in Neapolis is structured in such a way that theory with practice blend harmoniously with the sole aim of the student to gain in-depth knowledge of this science.

By studying a programme of Land Surveying Engineering may specialize in the following:

  • Topographical Mapping: Is the creation of maps that depict the surface of the earth and the built environment
  • Geodetic Surveying: are jobs of high precision illustrating the shape and size of the earth. Such surveys deter mine the limits between countries
  • Mapping: is map composition with the use instruments such as photogrammetry and remote sensing. These maps can have a particular use or search for a specific portion of the population
  • Land registry mapping (Surface surveying): Is the mapping of properties, city planning, land division, etc. The responsible (approved) surveyors may in many cases replace the job of land registry
  • Mapping for Construction: For any kind of construction, such as buildings, roads, bridges, etc., are required detailed topographical plans, for the implementation of these projects is responsible the Surveying Engineer.

“From land surveying exercises of Eratosthenes and Ptolemy’s maps the science of topographers ‘counts’ 2500 years. Today, the surveyor engineer utilizes the latest technologies to record, reconstruct and ultimately to interpret the geographical area, supporting a very wide range of architectural, urban planning, transportation and hydraulic projects. It would, therefore, be no exaggeration to say that every project starts with technical assistance from the topographer.”
George Artopoulos Architecture Lecturer

* The BSc in Land Surveying Engineering is in the process of approval by the Ministry of Education and Culture.

Programme Structure

To complete the program in Land Surveying, the student must successfully complete 38 core courses, four electives and a dissertation.

First Year

Is the introductory year of Land Surveying which lays the foundations for courses in subsequent years. It includes courses such as Principles of Economics, Technical Drawing and Design using a Computer, Physics, Mathematics, Surveying and Computer Programming.

Second Year

The student is ready to cope with more complex subjects of Land Surveying Engineering. Among others this year he is taught Geology Engineering, Cartography, Photogrammetry, Thematic Cartography, Geographic Information Systems, Fluid Mechanics, while continuing the courses in Mathematics, Statistics, Probability and Planning.

Third Year

This year is very important, since the student in Land Surveying will be taught Road Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Planning of Transport, Hydraulics and Hydrology, Urban and Regional Planning, Remote Sensing and Applications of Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems.

Fourth Year

This is the last year of the Land Surveying Programme includes the Dissertation, project in construction site, property valuations, Land Registry and Land Management, Sustainable Development and four electives, which will help the
