### Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the course students will:

1. be aware of the basic principles of geodetic networks;
2. be trained to successfully accomplish the topographic survey of a property;
3. have understood the meaning and the effectiveness of geodetic methods in the monitoring of civil and mechanical engineering structures.

### Teaching Methods

 Teaching methods Indoor lectures, Solving simple classroom exercises. Discussion of case studies in the classroom. During the semester students gradually carry out a field survey as a whole. Power Point presentations. Use of computer software in calculations and drawing, under the supervision of the Instructors . Yes. Yes (field surveying work and technical report).
