Dual bachelor of science degree in surveying and civil engineering unveiled
The College of Engineering at Penn State University has recently approved a new concurrent Surveying and Civil Engineering degree. This 5-year program will allow students to earn a bachelor of science degree in Surveying and Civil Engineering. Its graduates can become licensed both as a professional land surveyor and professional engineer in all fifty states. “By obtaining both degrees, graduates of this program expand their career opportunities by being able to function more flexibly in engineering and surveying firms where both areas of expertise are often in demand,” said Dr. Charles D. Ghilani, professor of engineering and Surveying program chair at Penn State Wilkes-Barre. “We expect that demand for the initially limited number of graduates in this program will encourage attractive starting salaries.” Students enrolled in this program will spend three years at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, then finish their final two years at the University Park campus. The Wilkes-Barre campus has offered the 4-year degree in surveying since 1994. Their graduates are highly sought after and, in the last ten years, the campus has boasted a 100% job placement rate for surveying graduates.
