The second paradigm shift in the civil engineering department programs was in 1998, with the launch of a unique specialization at the level of local universities, which is a Bachelor’s program in Civil Engineering "Surveying and Geomatics Engineering Branch", in which the student is introduced to the scientific and engineering foundations of this field and the modern techniques applied in this field. The study in this program extends for five years. After graduation, the graduate is classified in the Syndicate of Engineers as a civil engineer with a specialization in surveying and the possibility for the graduate to obtain a licensed surveyor from the Department of Lands and Surveys of the State of Palestine which enables him to issue and prepare all kinds of different survey maps.
  • Dealing with Land registration and parcellation and follow up in local official departments.
