A pathway to an exciting career

Looking for a technology-focused career in geospatial science? As a professional land surveyor, you’ll use technology such as total station, auto level and laser rangefinder to survey a land boundary and the terrain relief. You might have your own survey firm or join a corporation for large-scale projects. 

Land surveying is a highly specialized career. In addition to earning a college degree, a professional land surveyor must pass a series of examinations and complete several years of on-the-job training. When you choose this track, you’ll graduate from SFA with a Bachelor of Science in geospatial science, and you’ll also be prepared to start your professional journey as a surveying candidate-in-training.

Exciting internships provide real-world experience

An internship is a great way to gain hands-on experience and learn about potential career paths. Our students have completed exciting paid internships with oil and gas companies, government organizations, utility companies and more.
