"The learning curve is very short since students have obtained a strong working knowledge of the technology."

Program Advantages: 

Picture yourself enjoying time in the outdoors while using your math and computing skills. Surveying students learn both the fundamentals of surveying and software analysis using exciting technologies like GPS (Global Positioning Systems), GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and LIS (Land Information Systems). Surveying studies are offered for both an AAS degree and BS degree. Our four year surveying program is the only ABET accredited degree in New York and is only one of four in the northeast. If you're looking for an active and well compensated career, consider surveying and geomatics engineering technology.

Over $9,000 was awarded to our students at the 58th Annual NYSAPLS Conference. Thank you NYSAPLS and all local associations for supporting our students!
Professional Outlook: 

With the growth of GIS, GPS and geomatics and a surge in retirements, the job outlook in surveying is exceptional. Starting salaries in these jobs range from $40,000-80,000*, and in many of these jobs, surveyors are able to be outside and see the world. Our hands on curriculum teaches what you need to know by engaging in real projects, and our alumni are ready to hire you upon graduation.
