Aspiring Professional Land Surveyors Now Have a Local Option in MSTC
For the City-Times
The civil engineering technology program at Mid-State Technical College (MSTC) is evolving to keep pace with the educational requirements needed to become a professional land surveyor.
MSTC offers 12 credits of surveying classes in the Civil Engineering Technology—Highway Technician associate degree program. A minimum of 12 credits are required of someone with an associate’s degree in Civil Engineering who is seeking a career as a professional land surveyor in the state of Wisconsin.
MSTC is one of only five colleges and universities in Wisconsin to offer a degree that qualifies for Wisconsin Society of Land Surveyors (WSLS) licensure. In addition to the education requirement, aspiring professional land surveyors must pass two qualifying exams and have four years of experience working under a Professional Land Surveyor.
You don’t have to wait until next fall to enroll in MSTC’s Civil Engineering Technology—Highway Technician program. The college is currently accepting applications for both Spring Semester (begins Jan. 12) and the following Fall Semester.
