Surveying is known to be the oldest profession within civil engineering, where surveyors determine the position of natural and man-made objects on the earth’s surface, and record it for future planning purposes. Survey engineers are playing an important role in the economic framework for development of their societies and they were well respected everywhere. Many of our early leaders and explorers were famous surveyors such as James Cook, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln.

Surveying is the general term, which covers a multi-disciplines, such as Geodesy, Photogrammetry, Cartography, GIS, Digital Mapping, Cadastral Surveying, etc.

Surveying Engineers or Surveyors collect, analyze, and manage the global spatial infrastructure. They design, develop, and operate systems for collecting and analyzing spatial information about the land, the oceans, natural resources, and man-made features. They use sophisticated equipment such as Global Positioning Systems (GPS), electronic theodolites, levels, aerial photographs, satellite imagery for gathering, analyzing, and using information about the earth.  Modern Surveying topics include digital mapping, geodesy, photogrammetry, remote sensing, as well as more traditional surveying such as property surveys. However, gathering information with a spatial position and finally decision making is a tough job in respect of personal and a business perspective as well as different levels of government. There are different difficulties during surveying due to dishonest data, unanswered questions, differences in understanding and interpretation, hard to convey feelings and emotions, some questions are difficult to analyze, respondents may have a hidden agenda, lack of interaction, unethical responses.

In Santiniketan Institute of Polytechnic College, our Survey Engineering department has full time, qualified faculties to enrich the student’s knowledge. It is fully equipped with latest instruments and machines to provide hands-on experience to the students. Good placement opportunities are available for diploma holders in the field of Survey Engineering, both in Government and Private Sectors. They can be absorbed as survey engineers involved in different form of work such as supervision, draftsman (with computer knowledge), surveyors, and personnel in-charge of quality control, estimation work and office procedures. There is huge demand for survey engineers in India and it is also expected to get a boost as the country gets ready to upgrade its infrastructure with growing economy with time. After completion of this course, students can seek employment in consultancy firms, road projects, building work, etc. The career opens a lot of opportunities in numerous government departments as well as private sectors.
