AutoCAD Civil 3D-For Surveyors

AutoCAD Civil 3D-For Surveyors

Training and Certifications (Add to Waiting List)

Duration: 20 hours

Teaching Methodolody: Hands on


AutoCAD Civil 3D software is a civil engineering design and documentation solution that supports Building Information Modeling workflows. Using AutoCAD Civil 3D, infrastructure professionals can better understand project performance, maintain more consistent data and processes, and respond faster to change.


Students will learn basic and advanced topics, including how to import field equipment survey data, junction modeling, road widening, parcel creation, pipe networks, grading. In addition, to advanced topics in points, surfaces, assemblies, corridors, sections.


Civil engineers, designers, drafters, technicians, and surveyors.


Experience with AutoCAD or AutoCAD-based products (such as Autodesk Land Desktop) and a sound understanding and knowledge of civil engineering terminology. A basic level of AutoCAD Civil 3D experience is required.
