Land Development Design
Application of land surveying to the land development process. Principles of hydraulics, hydrology, roadway design, topographic grading, and surveying are applied to the creation of a residential development of single-family homes and townhouses. The legal and regulatory framework that governs land development is explored through study of state laws as well as municipal subdivision and zoning ordinances. Study includes the significant number of permits that must be obtained for a land development to occur. Coursework includes using industry-standard computer software to create a set of plans that constitute the land development. Spring Only.
