Education needed to become a Land Surveyor

Most people prepare for a career as a Professional Land Surveyor by combining postsecondary school courses in surveying with extensive on-the-job training. However, as technology advances, a 4-year college degree is becoming more important. About 25 universities now offer 4-year programs leading to a B.S. degree in surveying. Junior and community colleges, technical institutes and vocational schools offer 1, 2, and 3-year programs in both surveying and surveying technology.
