Certificate in Construction Surveying and Site Planning

NSF Advanced Technical Education Award

HCCC is proud to announce the Construction Management program has received an Advanced Technology Education grant award of $300,000 from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Students learn site development, site selection, site analysis, site plans, designs, and approval processes. Students are introduced to the principles of construction surveying, project layout, and operation of surveying equipment. Topics include: interaction of surveying with other disciplines, measurements, concepts, accuracy, precision, and levelling; methods for measuring distance, elevation angles, bearings and azimuths using level instrument and transits; traverses and computations; basic topography and mapping. Laboratory and fieldwork experiences include a field trip to a nearby construction project to review equipment site planning and surveying procedures; and a team project to review steps involved in site planning through completion of two types of construction sites: a traverse and an as-built survey.
