Northern Technical University
Technical College – Kirkuk
Department of Surveying Engineering
About the Program
The Department of Surveying Engineering was established in 1997 and is one of the leading and distinct department in the Technical College of Kirkuk due to its close development of the industry in various fields, especially in the field of Gemoatics, Global Navigation System (GPS), Geographic Information System. The department awards a bachelor’s degree in the Surveying Engineering to graduate students.
Aim of the Program
1. Graduating qualified personnel to carry out the work of the field surveying, aerial surveying, remote sensing techniques, leveling works of the natural land surface features, including the modern industrial zone and modern devices (complete station, full station) and equipment, the global navigation and surveying (GPS, DGPS) and being able to maintain and maintain the devices. In addition, the preparation and mapping of topographical, cadastral, thematic, and detail. As well as the use of geographical information systems (GIS) in order to build a database and produce digital messages in various fields.
2. Development of the teaching staff in the department through the General Authority for the preparation and appropriate training and in order to teach the department on scientific research and scientific and executive implementation to obtain higher degrees and instructions to obtain higher degrees.
3. Striving to develop the skills, scientific and scientific capabilities of the department’s engineers and technicians, and put them in developmental courses in a way that makes them positive for surgical tools.
4. Openness to society through supply and supply circles, and providing consulting and engineering studies in the field of the department’s specialization.
Mode and Duration of Study
The undergraduate degree is obtained after passing the four academic stages prepared for the implementation of the academic program by attending lectures, class participation, preparing laboratory reports and others, participating in summer training programs, and succeeding in the various tests that are conducted throughout the academic year designed for each program and for each scientific subject.
Courses or subjects (as shown in the tables below) are offered on a year basis to allow students to focus on one area of study at a time. There are at least 7 subjects in one academic year and each subject is 30 weeks long, including the examination week.
Students should take all the courses per academic year to finish the credits required to obtain the degree.
Medium and Course Assessment
The program will mostly be taught in English because we have some of our courses should be taken in Arabic such as Human rights.
The department likewise the other engineering departments thought-out Iraq suggested to use the hybrid learning method to overcome the COVID19 Pandemic period so, Electronic coursework and a list of suggested readings will be provided to help students to grasp the fundamental concepts of the department.
Assessment of each course must include assignments, mid-term examinations, project papers, and course work, as well as a final examination, which is normally held at the end of each course unless otherwise specified.
Students are required to successfully complete four years of courses (204 credits), including courses, elective courses, summer trainings, and one graduation project.
Those who have failed any of these courses are required to retake it. To graduate from our program, the number of failed courses over the entire period ofstudy cannot exceed two, and a cumulative grade in each course 50% or above must be achieved.
