The Surveying Unit oversees the surveying or geomatics needs of the faculty’s community. It is well-equipped with some of the latest state-of-the-art equipment. The unit primarily provides teaching and learning, research and practical training to students. As a way of contributing to the society, staff in the unit is also involved in rendering professional surveying services to third parties. The unit consists of two academic staff, one of whom is the coordinator, and three support staff.
In 2010, the staff was actively involved in research funded by the MOHE under the FRGS. The grant obtained is valued at RM92,000.00. At the same time, the unit has a doctoral candidate carrying a research in photogrammetry. The unit also organised off-campus survey camps which were attended by 220 local and overseas students.
