  • Best colleges in India to pursue Diploma in Civil Engineering in the field of Land Surveying

    Eager to pursue a Diploma in Civil Engineering in the field of Land Surveying? Know from expert answers at this page if this is possible even after age 30 and which colleges in India would be the best ones to pursue this program.

    I am a Land Surveyor, having 12+ years of experience in the surveying field. I worked for some reputed companies in Middle East countries. I have done a one-year Diploma in Land Surveying, but to get a good position or senior position, it is important to have at least a Diploma in Civil Engineering.
    Hence, I would like to know if there is any college or university where I can get admission for a diploma in civil engineering which would possibly be related to the field of land surveying? Note that I have done my 10th in 2004 and now I am m 35 years old. Hence, would it be possible to get admission now? If yes, please suggest some college names where I can pursue the Diploma course.

  • You have neither mentioned the area in which you will prefer to have these institutions where you can undergo the diploma in civil engineering course nor you have shown your choice for the mode of education wether it is regular or correspondence course. Still there are some general things and information which we can share with you at this moment.

    There are two options for you. One thing is you can go for Post Graduate diploma in land surveying and other is to pursue diploma in civil engineering. I think both can give you the leverage in your career making efforts. So, depending upon your location you can select some good institution for pursuing these courses. The apex institution in our country in this respect is Indian Institute of Surveying & Mapping, Survey of India (Deptt. of Science & Technology, Govt. of India), Uppal, Hyderabad. They have many courses related to basic and advanced surveying techniques. I think you can find the details from there for eligibility for admission in some of the courses which are useful for you in the present scenario.

    Land surveying is not a primitive field today. It has evolved in a big area comprising of Geodesy, Cartography, Digital Mapping & GIS, Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing, Topographical Survey & Land Information Systems etc so you can think of switching to one of them after attaining the requisite qualification. One thing is that you should not bother for admission because now a days there are private online institutions which are imparting value education in these areas and you can get this skill from them either online or correspondence course. Some of these are - International Institute of Management & Engineering (, Aqua Foundation Academy (, Class Central ( etc.

    Knowledge is power.
