Message from Department Head 

Surveying is a global profession with excellent opportunities in industries that underpin land markets, urban and rural development and engineering construction.

Madda Walabu University started its Surveying Engineering Degree Program in 2007 E.C. The program's objective was to train future surveyors to be qualified for the practical application of sciences and technologies involved in acquiring, storing, managing, processing, integrating and visualizing geographic and spatially referenced information as well as integrating the data for different kinds of analyses.

Surveying Engineering Department has local and expatriate Instructors and laboratory assistants who are very much dedicated in attaining the University's vision of becoming an institution well known for its outstanding learner experience and distinctive regional contributions. The department would also like to recognize the high quality impact of its staff on teaching, training, applied research and innovation to their student's success as future surveyors.

The goal we aim to achieve as a department is highly possible with the unswerving dedication of our students and staff alongside the remarkable support of the University. Together we can bring the change we are all dreaming of in the field of surveying through development of practice oriented education and research. Producing surveying engineers who will contribute to the social and economic development is highly beneficial in substantially reducing poverty in our beloved country.

 

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN SURVEYING ENGINEERING

 Program objectives 

General objective

 In addition to the general objective of the University, the B.Sc. program under interest in particular is expected to bring about change in the field of Surveying through the development of practice oriented education, research and producing surveying Engineers who will contribute to the country’s social and economic development and substantially reduce poverty. 

Specific objectives

 Specifically, the Surveying Engineering degree program at hand aspires to: 

Ø  Promote a strong sense of ethics and professionalism in the fields of surveying and mapping.

Ø  Produce surveyors who will contribute to the country’s social and economic development and substantially reduce poverty through conducting researches in the field of surveying and mapping.

Ø  Through the development of practice oriented education and research, to produce well-qualified professionals in the fields of surveying and mapping.

Ø     Produce an engineer who plan, manage, monitor and evaluate the operation in any cadastral and mapping surveys.

Ø  Produce an engineer who applies basic mathematical, scientific, legal and measurement principles that form the theoretical framework of professional surveying practice.

Ø    Produce an engineer who select and properly use appropriate techniques and tools to collect, analyze and interpret data to obtain optimum surveying solutions for different situations in the country.

Ø    Produce an engineer who assess a survey situation, determine the opportunities and risks for clients and others in that situation, postulate an optimum solution for the situation, implement the proposed solution, and assess the impact of the solution after implementation.

Ø    Produce an engineer who undertakes reconnaissance, preliminary and construction activities in civil engineering, irrigation and construction projects.

Ø  Produce an engineer who solves problems as part of a team containing members with majors in other disciplines.

Ø  Produce an engineer who recognizes the potential of conflicts between the best interests of clients, society, and professional service providers, as well as ethical precepts and legal obligations to avoid or resolve these potential conflicts.
