Course Outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to: 1). Apply the surveying techniques in collecting information for the preparation of details plan for engineering works. 2). Evaluate the equipment whether in good working condition. If necessary carry out the necessary adjustment. 3). Calculate the position by applying the concept of traverse and coordinate computation using latitude and departure. 4). Calculate the area by coordinate methods and applying the formulae for the computation of volume. 5). Apply the formulae in the computation of horizontal curves and vertical curves and prepare the tables for setting out the centreline of the proposed road.
