Master in Surveying Engineering

Lebanese International University

Master in Surveying Engineering

The program includes following courses:

Underground & Marine Survey

The goal of this course is to explain the methods and the tools used to establish the surveying inside the tunnels, the off-shore surveying, and the connection between this work and that accomplished on the Earth surface, introduction to marine survey, marine maps, marine course, Echosounders and depth measurements, combining echosounders and GPS observation, production of marine maps.

Geomatics for Civil Works

Specific applications of the principles and techniques introduced in earlier surveying courses are applied to a range of engineering projects in this course. The main emphasis, however, will be on the practical application of this knowledge in practical projects. Linear measurements- field work practice. Leveling, Angular measurement , building setting out, building surveys, roads works- curve calculation, roads works- setting out, drain and pipelines, height tension electricity. Hydrographic survey

Master Thesis

This project may be registered for in the last semester before graduation. The project is intended to apply the student's total formal knowledge to a real problem at the appropriate professional level. In this sense it will develop and test the ability to define and analyze the problem, to develop solutions to the problem, to make the necessary decisions, convert ideas into useful outcomes and to cope with the unexpected problems encountered in testing and evaluation. All of this must be accomplished against a tight timescale within resource limitations and with due regard for safety, social and ethical considerations. In short, the project is a good test of overall ability in engineering or surveying or GIS.
