Field Engineering

Field Engineering mistakes in class on Saturday cost nothing and are a learning experience, mistakes on Monday cost time, money, and aggravation!

Gain confidence in layout work, learn the proper way to prepare field notes, and refresh basic math skills related to layout work. Students will learn how to look for common errors and how to eliminate common field mistakes. Students will use what is discussed in the lectures in real work class labs. Lab exercises will be outside and model real work conditions. Field Engineering

Students work with transits, levels, and lasers in setting grades from benchmarks, establishing new benchmarks, writing proper field notes, setting and turning angles, building layouts, and basic math associated with construction layout and real work problems.
Offered twice a year – spring and fall.

Five sessions:

  • 3 Weekdays:  7:00 pm - 9:30 pm, Classroom 
  • 2 Saturdays:  8:00 am - 11:00 am, Field Lab

Hundreds of students have gone through the program.

“Gave clarity on how to better read a level and transit...also made the math behind the measurements easier to interpret.”

- Corey Clauss, Benchmark Construction Co., Inc.

“I have a better understanding of a jobsite layout and more in-depth knowledge on how to turn angles.”

- Zach Tobias, Construction Masters Services, LLC
