“SRV255 was one of the most valuable courses I took. Having worked in heavy industrial building construction and transportation construction, I’ve seen how difficult it would be to design and build infrastructure projects without a fundamental grasp of land surveying. SRV 255 equipped me to interpret plans and to make construction adjustments that prevent future problems.

Civil engineering and land surveying are functionally inseparable in practice. Every civil engineer will rely upon survey data throughout their career. SRV 255 is a fantastic, hands-on tool available to UIUC students to prepare for this.”

“Civil engineers in construction rely heavily on their surveying knowledge to translate designs into reality in the field.  Civil engineer designers begin their work using surveying data.  Understanding how that data is gathered is immensely helpful in communicating with your team. 

Our full-service engineering firm performs everything from the initial topographic survey to the engineering design and review to the final construction stakeout.  My background surveying knowledge helps me to communicate well with the surveying crews during each phase.  Occasionally, I need to do some minor surveying field work myself.  That experience has really opened new doors for me. “
