Texas Land Surveying Education - Colleges &
The state's licensing board, the Texas Board of Professional Land Surveying,
requires RPLS candidates to earn a 4-year college degree (of any kind), with at
least 32 hours of survey-related courses. And in place to meet those
education requirements are some of the finest land surveying & GIS programs
in the nation.
Students can earn associate degrees and also enroll in 4-year programs on
Texas campuses. And as the demand for licensed professional land surveyors
increases, more surveying programs will come online and
expand across the state.
Below are colleges/universities offering land surveying, GIS or
surveying-related courses and degree plans. If you know of others not
listed, please email that information to
