University College of Surveying and Geospatial Sciences


The purpose of this specialization is to study the shape of the general land and determine its internal details and limits. Calculate the land areas of different types for the purpose of exploiting them in agricultural production or dividing them using the laws of the area, and performing the sorting and division of land and calculating the quantities of dirt. Know the heights and drops of different points on the Earth’s surface, both for some or for any known horizontal level. This process is called the budget and is used in land settlement processes to be reclaimed. Construction of water projects such as wells and drainage, tunnels and bridges, and other engineering installations according to land slopes and various levels. The use of modern surveying tools and devices in all their forms in engineering projects. The signing of projects, which is the opposite of the mapping process, ie the implementation of the drawings of projects on paper on nature. This specialization is in the following aspects: the importance of coordinate system in the work of the different area. Calculate coordinates in different ways. Calculate the trends and lengths of the different angles of their point coordinates. Representation and display of terrain on charts and maps. Use different terrain devices to raise details. (GPS). Use of modern techniques in the field of spatial representation such as Geographic Information System (GIS) Areas in which the student can graduate in the field of specialization: Civil Engineering, Geometric Engineering and Geometrics. Engineering of roads and bridges, and according to the conditions of the University of Balqa Applied in this regard.

Road area and quantity calculation

The objective of the specialization is to prepare qualified technicians to monitor and follow up the work of the implementation of roads and quality control in them and to conduct the calculation of quantities and the implementation of the necessary cadastral work. The specialization is concerned with the following aspects: Drawing using computer to represent natural land and industrial landmarks. Calculating coordinates using different mathematical methods. Using classical and modern techniques to find different heights of natural and industrial landmarks. Study of roads, paths, design mechanism and implementation on the ground. Manual drawing of long sections and cross sections. For the methods and mapping of the contour. To know the Jordanian and international specifications and the method of executing the contracts concluded between the owner and the contractor. Calculate the quantities of drilling and filling and all the work related to the roads. Global signature in positioning. Use of modern techniques in GIS, aerial photography and remote sensing in different areas.

GIS and Remote Sensing

The purpose of this specialization is to: • Demonstrate the importance of modern techniques of geographic information systems and remote sensing in various fields, and their role in comprehensive planning with the components and how to deal with them. The importance of its uses in roads, crisis and disaster management, urban planning, mapping and updating. Security, water and sanitation networks, environmental protection, statistics, etc.). The development of geographic databases. Learn about the basic principles of remote sensing and how to interpret space images. How to handle digital images and digital processing systems. The course focuses on the following aspects: Analysis and measurement of maps and statistical aspects and processes. The study of the nature of the earth in terms of geological structure, weather phenomena and vegetation through digital images. The study of changing phenomena such as floods and traffic, which are difficult to monitor directly to the human eye due to rapid change, and recording in digital format helps p Rapid and accurate measurements of distances, trends, areas, elevations and slopes. The production and updating of maps in a timely and accurate time was not available in the traditional methods that prevailed before. Update and analyze the data and convert it to reference digital databases with a known coordinate system. Which can be bridged by the student in the specialization of the diploma area: field engineering and geomatics. Calculated the conditions of the University of Applied Balqa in this regard.
