This course introduces the student to the fundamentals of construction field engineering, survey, and building layout. The student learns the use and care of survey equipment while performing field practices such as distance measuring; building layout; profile and cross-sectional leveling; and traversing. Trigonometry and geometry are used to balance angles, make distance corrections, and compute areas and volumes.
2 hours of lecture, 3 hours of lab per week
