Objectives:
▪ After completing this course, students should be able to:
▪ Identify the use of route surveying in the field of engineering
▪ Distinguish the various types of curves: simple, compound,
reverse, vertical & spiral.
▪ Conduct field surveys utilizing survey instruments such as
theodolite, engineer’s transit & tape measures.
▪ Manifest the ability to derive & apply the formulas in solving
problems of different types of curves.
▪ Conduct feasibility studies involving road construction and
earthwork (mass hauling) studies.
