*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101  course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree to 64-65 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

Program Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this degree option, students will be able to:

  1. demonstrate standard techniques to locate and determine three dimensional coordinates of points on the ground using surveying instruments;
  2. describe the topographical features of points on the ground and provide three dimensional coordinates for these points with given precisions as determined by Federal, State, and Local accuracies and specifications;
  3. demonstrate how to incorporate positional information into effective written and oral communications;
  4. create two dimensional scale drawings to interpret and define field data to accuracy and precision as determined by Federal, State, and Local accuracies and specifications;
  5. use scale drawings to solve problems incurred in field surveys and compare accuracy of drawings through legal and database searches;
  6. explain proper procedures used in determining three dimensional positions and show how these procedures comply with Federal, State, and Local specifications; and
  7. prepare scale drawings that will comply with Federal, State, and Local Laws, Standards, and Regulations to be used by State, County, Federal Agencies, Property and Real Estate Professionals, Property Owners and others requiring legal descriptions of objects positioned upon the earth and property boundaries.

Program Description:

This degree program prepares students for positions with surveying firms, government, and engineering/construction firms as office technicians performing data reduction, basic design, and computer aided drafting.

Students who elect this curriculum and desire to transfer courses to a four-year institution should check with the program coordinator and/or an academic advisor. While many courses will transfer, certain specialized courses may not. Courses may be taken in any sequences as long as prerequisites are met. Some courses may be offered in alternate semesters only.
