Surveying combines knowledge in mathematics, computers, history, geography, art, business, and communication; coupled with a love of the outdoors (hunting, fishing, snowmobiles, cross country skiing, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, and ATV trail riding) to provide a rewarding career emphasizing independence and responsibility.

Surveying provides a rewarding outdoor career that begins with enrollment in the surveying engineering technology program at the University of Maine.

The surveying engineering technology program allows for five tracks: Engineering, Construction Management, Legal, Entrepreneurial, Business, and GIS.
