Surveying and Geomatics - Associate in Science
Evergreen Valley College offers the only Surveying and Geomatics program in the South Bay area. The program trains students with the necessary skills to become a land surveyor. It provides students with the formal theoretical and laboratory course work necessary to prepare for the Land Surveyors-In-Training Examination and the Professional Land Surveyors Examination. It also provides coursework for those planning to transfer to a four-year Surveying or Geomatics Engineering program. The program provides students with three options: an Associate in Science degree, an Associate in Arts degree and a Certificate of Achievement. A grade of “C” or better in each major course and major elective course is required for this degree.
