All classes within the program use real-world problems and projects instead of just book exercises. This fusion of education and application is an essential part of all courses.
The Land Survey Technician program provides students with state-of-the-art equipment including two GPS systems in addition to the total stations, levels, and other instruments of the trade. These instruments provide students with the opportunity to train with land surveying tools used in the field. Students are encouraged to join one of two student organizations.
The Civil Engineering Technician Associate (CETA) student club provides students with networking and professional development opportunities. CETA hosts a Professional Night each Fall where local industry professionals network with current students. The Land Surveyors club is a student club dedicated to the Land Surveying profession. Club members perform various land surveying activities including attending the Wisconsin Society of Land Surveyor’s annual state conference.
