Prospective students should be aware that licensure requirements for work in this profession vary by state. The Surveying Technology program meets the educational requirements for licensure within the state of Pennsylvania. We have not determined if graduates of our program will be eligible for licensure in other states; therefore, students intending to seek employment in states other than PENNSYLVANIA are asked to contact the state licensing board of the state they wish to seek licensing to confirm that our program meets the requirements of the state where you intend to work. More information can be found on the the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) website
