Four-year Degrees for Surveying Being offered in South Carolina

With the implementation of the four-year degree requirement for licensure as a Surveyor, it is good news that two universities have adopted curricula that meet the education requirement.  Clemson University and South Carolina State University have proposed curricula to the Board that will meet four-year education requirements for licensure as a surveyor, and the Board has officially approved the degrees for licensure purposes.  (This approval should not be confused with ABET accreditation, as that designation is determined by the EAC Commission of ABET.)  It is, however, an assurance to individuals who wish to undertake the coursework that the curriculum is acceptable to the Board.  Please contact the engineering departments at Clemson and at S.C. State University for additional information.
