What is Surveying Management?


Before a building is finished, there are many steps in a long process to complete. From the construction to the permits, there are an array of professions within the construction realm that are required to work together to see a project come to life.

One of these professions is surveying management. A surveyor is one of the most important parts of a construction project as they help design and plan the map for construction. The surveyor will use science to determine different points on the ground, finding the optimal location, size, and distance for a building. A surveying manager takes this profession one step further, mixing the knowledge needed for surveying with the skills needed to manage successfully.

At Everglades University, we have created a specific program for those interested in becoming surveying managers. The program, which is a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Surveying Management, prepares students to become leaders and managers in the surveying industry. It combines the technical and occupational subjects required for the industry, and focuses on management skills and business knowledge needed to lead a group successfully.

Program Objective and Outline

The program will take approximately 41 months, depending on transfer credits. During that time, students will take classes ranging from topics like law and regulations to design and theory. Once the general education courses are completed, lower division courses are:

  • Fundamentals of Surveying
  • Roadway Construction Management
  • Building Construction Drawing
  • Construction Documents
  • Intro to Construction Techniques
  • Intro to Sustainability

Once the introduction courses are completed, students can choose to take seven interdisciplinary studies or a mix of courses meant to help with surveying. These courses include:

  • Principles of Management
  • Microeconomics
  • Organization and Tech of Information Systems
  • Accounting Principles I & II
  • Construction Estimating
  • OSHA Standards

The upper division courses are a full 54 credit hours and it’s during these classes that students will dive deep into the world of construction and surveying. Once these courses are completed, students will be prepared to enter into a career in surveying management, and have a focused education on construction, estimating, surveying, and mapping. Some of the upper division courses are:

  • Construction Contracts
  • Highway Platting
  • Boundary Surveying
  • Construction Law
  • Managing a Construction Project
