The Great Pyramid of Giza has a base that covers more than 13 acres. Its volume is around 90,000,000 cubic feet, and it was thought to have been erected around 2600 BC. And it was built with the help of surveying techniques.

Small class size
At TSTC, our Land Surveying classes are taught face to face and average just 10 students per class to ensure instructors have plenty of time to work with their students individually. At TSTC, we appreciate that all of our students are different. Not everyone learns the same way or at the same speed. Our instructors are aware of these diversities and are willing to do whatever it takes to guide individuals through the learning process at their own pace.
At TSTC we place a strong emphasis on hands-on learning whenever possible. You’ll be putting your elbow grease to the test in this program. We make sure you have every opportunity to get your hands dirty with the equipment you’ll use on the job before you ever leave the classroom. We want you to feel experienced and comfortable with the tools you’ll be working with in the industry.
TSTC’s strong programs match industry needs, making it easier for graduates to obtain jobs when the time comes to move out into the workforce.
As industry professionals, our advisory committees assist the college in determining the courses you study, providing a valuable advantage.
