General Information

Overview

This unit introduces you to engineering surveying techniques and practical skills. It outlines the practice in plane and geodetic surveying such as measurements of distances, elevations and angles. You are also expected to demonstrate an understanding of surveying methods which include triangulation, traversing and transfer of true meridian to an underground base. Concepts are also introduced in relation to automated survey instruments, errors and survey adjustments, and computerised processing of survey data. You will also need to demonstrate teamwork and communication skills necessary to implement such systems in the civil construction and mining industries. In this unit, you must complete compulsory practical activities. Refer to the Engineering Undergraduate Course Moodle site for proposed dates.

Recommendation

Continue to upload the recordings after the sessions. The recordings will be uploaded in two separate videos, one for the lecture and one for the tutorial, to help students better access videos.

Feedback from Moodle Website and email

Feedback

The staff had good technical knowledge, and the lecturer was really helpful through quick and comprehensive responses.

Recommendation

The same quality of support will be maintained in future offerings.

Feedback from Moodle Website

Feedback

The practical class was really informative and a great way to be hands-on.

Recommendation

Continue to organise the practical sessions on all campuses. Videos demonstrating surveying equipment and their operation will be shown and discussed in the lecture sessions to highlight the importance and usefulness of the practical in understanding surveying.

Feedback from Moodle Website

Feedback

The tutorial sessions are better after the lecture sessions.

Recommendation

The tutorial Questions will be discussed after the lecture delivery. Drop-in sessions will be considered for those who have questions about the unit contents.

Feedback from Moodle Website
