Course Description & Objectives: 

Field  Data  Collection  for  the  Civil  Engineer  is  the  first  basic  professional  activity  of  the  Civil Engineering Surveyor. It is the fieldwork of Surveying, but with a flexible approach suitable to the collection of field data (detail, features) that would be needed by the Civil Engineer. This course is a theoretic introduction and covers the background to field data collection.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Objectives:

  •      The purpose of this course is to introduce Surveying in its general concept
  •       It shows the distinction between Civil Engineering  Surveying and other types of Surveying, particularly Land Surveying with which it is often mistaken.
  •  It presents  the idea of field data collection  for the Civil Engineer  (inclusive)  and how this differs from data collection in other forms of surveying (sampling)
  •       Field data collection is then expanded into its practical elements and constraints


Learning Outcomes: 

On completion the student will:

  • Have a firm grasp of the fundamentals of Surveying in theory ready for the practice
  •  Appreciate the work of the Civil Engineering Surveyor in relation to the Civil Engineer.
  • Have met case studies of the collection of different types of field data.
