Serial Information: Journal of the Surveying and Mapping Division, 1967, Vol. 93, Issue 1, Pg. 13-22

Document Type: Journal Paper


Attrition in surveying courses has apparently been going on for many years, but the more recent shift in emphasis from engineering to science has brought about major changes in engineering education, with the result that surveying has been eliminated completely from some college civil engineering curricula. The two types of professional survey operations are discussed, those of the civil engineer and those of the survey specialist, with a view toward the education that can best be contrived to suit each need.
