Abstract

In 2010 the faculty in the Surveying Engineering program conducted an extensive review of the courses offered in the program due to advances in surveying technology. At that time it was decided to expand some courses, combine others, and add new courses to the curricula. Additionally at this time it was decided to expand and replace instrumentation available for use in the classes and purchase a terrestrial laser scanner. This paper discusses the changes to the programs including new courses being offered, integration of new equipment into the curricula, assessment methods used in the program, and the creation of video lessons designed for student use with smart phones.
