About the course

The course is designed for students who wish to develop an understanding and working knowledge of the principles and applications of a variety of surveying devices and techniques.

Versions of this course have been running at The University of Nottingham in the UK for almost 20 years. This course runs entirely at The University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC), providing students with the ability to appreciate and apply state-of-the-art engineering surveying techniques within a practical context. It includes the principles underpinning surveying, such as reference systems and geodesy, as well as the techniques and equipment used in engineering surveying, photogrammetry and satellite positioning systems such as GPS. UNNC is located in an excellent GNSS coverage area, from which both BeidouI+II/Compass and QZSS satellites can be observed.

In addition to the formal part of the course, we run practical classes that allow students to see and learn how to use and operate a very wide variety of state-of-the-art surveying equipment and software, including laser scanners, servo driven total stations, RTK and Network RTK GPS, digital and analogue photogrammetry, LiDAR, SAR and InSAR.

Students studying this course will be develop the ability to:

  • apply their skills directly within the surveying industry
  • react quickly to new technologies and innovations
  • communicate ideas effectively in written reports, verbally and through making presentations to groups
  • exercise original thought, as well as gain interpersonal, communication and professional skills 
  • plan and undertake an individual project

The course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES).

Course structure and content

The course consists of 120 credits of taught modules along with a 60 credit major individual research-based project undertaken over the summer term. It is also available as a postgraduate diploma which covers the same taught modules, but does not include the research project. Please be aware modules are subject to change.

Modules

Autumn semester:

  • Analytical methods
  • Geodetic reference systems
  • Fundamentals of satellite positioning
  • Engineering surveying

Spring semester:

  • Advanced satellite positioning

Individual project

Once you have completed the modules, you will undertake a supervised research project over the summer term. Students receive dedicated supervision from staff members. This is a key component of the degree, affording students the opportunity to conduct independent research which may be related to their future employment. 

It provides the student with an opportunity to undertake a substantial personal project appropriate to their interests. It will normally take the form of scientific investigation whether it involves experimentation or an extensive review of work already completed by others. Typically (but not exclusively) it will include the following:

  • project definition and aim (choice of subject is at the discretion of the convenor)
  • literature review
  • practical experimentation/investigation
  • critical analysis of findings
  • presentation of results

Advance your career with a master’s degree in civil engineering. Our convenient evening classes provide the flexibility your schedule demands.

MSOE’s Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCVE) program is designed to equip students with the advanced knowledge 
and skills necessary for professional practice. The MSCVE program was designed to address the new civil engineering Body of Knowledge requirements for graduate programs developed by the American Society of Civil Engineers. Students will be able to specialize in one of the following three areas: (1) construction management, (2) environmental and water resources engineering, and (3) structural engineering.

Completion of the MSCVE program satisfies the proposed educational requirement promulgated by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying calling for a minimum of a master’s degree or equivalent as a prerequisite for professional engineering licensure.

MSOE’s MSCVE program is tailored to the student who already has an undergraduate degree from an ABET-accredited civil engineering program. Students who do not have an ABET-accredited undergraduate degree in civil engineering may have to take additional prerequisite courses as specified by the Program Director. These additional prerequisite courses will be chosen by the MSCVE Program Director based on the student’s academic background to help ensure that the student is equipped to be successful in civil engineering graduate studies at MSOE.

Curriculum Format

The MSCVE program requires completion of 45 graduate credits. At least 36 of these credits shall be taken from courses within the student’s chosen specialty; up to 9 credits may be taken from courses within other civil engineering specialty areas or from courses offered by other departments.

During the last year of the student’s graduate studies, the student must complete either (a) a nine-credit, three-quarter Capstone Project consisting of CV-800, CV-890, and CV-892, or (b) a three-credit, one-quarter Capstone Report consisting of CV-800 only. The former is appropriate for students wishing to conduct graduate-level research for personal enrichment or as preparation for subsequent graduate studies; the latter is appropriate for students who wish to take additional coursework in preparation for professional civil engineering practice.

Objectives and Outcomes

Program Educational Objectives

- Formulate and solve ill-defined engineering or construction problems appropriate to civil engineering.
- Conduct a literature review in a specialized technical area appropriate to civil engineering.
- Analyze and/or design a complex system or process in a specialized technical area appropriate to civil engineering.

Student Outcomes

Graduate of the MSCVE program will:
- be able to evaluate complex systems or processes within realistic constraints such as customary standards of practice, costs, and sustainability.
- be able to choose to pursue registration as a professional engineer or certification as a professional construction manager will, after attaining the required years of work experience stipulated by the relevant licensing board, achieve that distinction.
- pursue opportunities to advance their technical and professional skills through lifelong learning.
- be able to obtain a Ph.D. in their area of civil engineering specialization, if desired.

This MSc is an intensive study of the technical, analytical and professional aspects of modern land surveying. The programme gives students a broad range of experience in methods of spatial data acquisition, with a curriculum that includes exposure to terrestrial survey equipment, close range sensors, aerial imagery and GNSS techniques.

See the website http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/taught/degrees/surveying-msc

Key Information

As preparation for the MSc if you are offered a place, you will be expected to revise your knowledge of mathematics in certain topics such as trigonometry, geometry and differential calculus if you have not studied these for some time. The most comprehensive text to use would be "Engineering Mathematics" by K.A. Stroud (6th Edition), but many other text books covering an equivalent level of mathematics are also available.

- Application dates
All applicants:
Open: 5 October 2015
Close: 29 July 2016
