Land Survey Department

Surveying data is key to the design, implementation and monitoring of Engineering projects.

For this data to be authentic and reliable, it requires requisite knowledge and skills in its collection, processing and presentation.
Land Survey department seeks to equip learners with the skills and knowledge that match current industry needs in areas of geospatial data and manipulation. This is made possible through qualified and experienced staff and application of modern surveying tools.

At an early stage of their studies, learners are also encouraged to join institution of Surveyors of Kenya (ISK) as student members for mentorship and professional development purposes. In the course of the training, trainees undertake a three months industrial attachment that exposes them to workplace experience. In addition, students in their final year of study, carry out a trade project in order to apply what they have learnt.
