surveying world into three main groups:
Commission (EAC) - includes Baccalaurate (4-year) Degree programs
in Surveying Engineering.
Commission (TAC) - includes Surveying Technology programs, with
Associate Degree (2-year) programs; and Surveying Engineering
Technology, usually Baccalaurate Degrees.
Applied Science Commission
(ASAC) - includes Baccalaurate (4-year) Degree programs in Engineering-Related programs, such as
Surveying and Mapping.
