Module Summary The aim of teaching this course is to provide engineering students with a background in important concepts and principles of surveying as a technique, profession, and science of determining and contour of the Earth's surface. Surveying practice plays a major role in the principal stages of all the engineering projects. During the design, construction, and maintenance stages surveying measurements are needed to achieve the required accurate shape of the structure. Measurements in surveying vary from simple tape measurements to the more complicated GPS photogrammetric, and geodetic measurements. Therefore a high level skill is required by the engineer to deal with such widely complex subject. In this course the most important basic skills in computation and field work are given to the students. These skills start from the basic tape measurements and ending at the use of the total station and GPS instruments. 9. Module Aims * Provides a sound understanding of the concepts and applications of surveying in the field of engineering. * Expose students to fundamental knowledge and practical experience in surveying measurements and computations. 10. Learning Outcomes * Describe and interpret statements and questions concerning surveying measurements needed to achieve the required accurate shape of the structure * An ability to use the surveying equipment for determining the dimensions and contour of the Earth's surface and land boundaries, and to work with cartographers to create accurate maps. * Working with skills to accurately measure flat and three-dimensional points, as well as the distance and angles between them. 11.

The rated lecture method ( lecturing using power point presentation), as the principal time saving teaching method by which the students attentively listen to the lecture and take notes on all knowledge related to topic. 2. Classic teaching method is also used throughout clarification and explanation in details on white board some topic aspects need further discussion and highlighting. 3. Develop creativity among students and enhancing classroom dynamics is carried out by introducing critical thinking questions and asking the students for the answers. 4. Assignments: The method enhances the ability of research on any topic as the students search topic from different books, websites etc. 5. Seminars on certain topics related to course curriculum. 16.
