Course Description & Objectives: 

This course is a basic to the profession. It uses what has been learned in CES1101, CES1102 and CES1104. Practice should come instinctively, as with riding a bicycle. It must be flexible to cater for an international private sector (mostly) clientele.  The practice of surveying cannot be taught by handouts and assessed by written examinations, nor made to comply with a single method of record keeping.The chainman is characterised by having the right people and right equipment and materials in the right place at the right time.The student groups are taught how to carry out tasks and then supervised as they work on their own.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Objectives:
