Certificate in Surveying

Certificate in Surveying

The Certificate in Surveying program is designed to help professionals with any bachelor’s degree meet the academic requirements of Professional Surveyor license qualifications as approved by the Ohio Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Surveyors.

Professional surveyors play an important role in land development and maintaining the accuracy of land divisions and property boundaries. The Program supports the State’s mission to widen the pool of candidates eligible to serve as Ohio’s elected county engineers, which requires dual registration as a professional engineer and professional surveyor in order to perform their statutory duties.
