Bachelor in Surveying Engineering


Program Description

Bachelor of Surveying Engineering

The program includes following courses:

Engineering Project Management

This course covers the fundamentals of project management for engineering professionals. It reviews the project management framework in organizations and covers in-depth the tools and techniques used in initiating, planning, executing, monitoring, controlling and concluding a project to achieve the set goals within schedule and budget targets. Real life engineering project examples are used to demonstrate the application of project management concepts to engineering projects. The course is aligned with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI’s) Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and helps learners to prepare for PMI certification exams.

Calculus III

This text covers basic topics on infinite series, lines and planes in space, cylinders and quadric surfaces, functions of several variables, limits and continuity, Partial derivatives, chain rule, directional derivatives, Gradient vector, tangent planes, double and triple integrals, areas, moments, center of mass, volumes, double integrals in polar forms, triple integrals in cylindrical and spherical coordinates, line integrals, vector fields Green’s theorem, surface integrals, Stokes theorem, and the divergence theorem. Students are required to solve an extensive number of problems and computer assignment using the mathematical software package Maple.

Surveying I

This course treats the basics of surveying and basis for topographical problems encountered in surveying engineering. As the course deals the earth (earth and universe, earth size measurements, spheroid, spherical triangles), methods of surveying and mapping (introduction, classical ground surveys, aerial surveys, and global position system), mathematical review (function, derivative, differential of a function), and theory of error (statistics and probabilities, types of error accidental errors and calculations, accidental error for indirect measurements, measurements of different reliability. Angular measurements and instruments (definitions, instruments errors of angular measurements).Distance measurements (definitions and types, direct measurements. behavior of systematic error in direct measurements methods and equipment for indirect measurements reduction of distances to projection plan), leveling and instruments (definitions, methods of leveling), execution of surveying works (basic network, calculation principles), areas calculations (regular and irregular figures).

Entry Requirements

LIU has, in the undergraduate studies, a large range of degree programs to choose from. The admission process is rather easy. All you need are the below documents.

  1. Certified copy of the BACC II Diploma or its equivalent.
  2. Holders of the Technical Baccalaureate Degree must provide an additional certified copy of the BT equivalency (issued from the Ministry of Higher Education in Lebanon).
  3. Certified copy of grades of the last 3 years of school.
  4. Four (4) recent passport-sized colored photographs.
  5. Two copies of the Identification card. (1st page of passport for non-Lebanese) إخراج قيد إفرادي
  6. Two recent copies of the family civil status record: إخراج قيد عائلي
  7. TOEFL (International IBT) score, if available, or must sit for the LIU English Placement Test.
  8. $30 non-refundable application fee.
  9. Transfer applicants must submit a certified university official transcript and a course description from the college or university attended (instead of the school grades).
  10. All applicants must submit their social security papers (DAMAN), if available, or must fill the appropriate papers at the social security office. (Non-Lebanese Students are exempted from the Social Security).
  11. If you are in need of financial assistance to attend the university, pick up an "Application Form for Financial Aid" from the Public Relations Office.
