Dannielle will have four years of credit toward the total statutory time requirement for licensure as a land surveyor in New York State after she graduates.


Dannielle O’Buckley was drawn to Alfred State’s surveying and geomatics engineering technology major for a couple of reasons.

Number one, she was searching for a surveying program with a four-year degree path. Number two, she noticed the major is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET).

As a result of this accreditation of her program, Dannielle will have four years of credit toward the total statutory time requirement for licensure as a land surveyor in New York State after she graduates. Through studying at Alfred State, she will also have gained valuable hands-on experience and knowledge through a combination of classroom instruction and field work.

“We get the lectures in class, and then the hands-on work that reinforces what you learned. It makes you more confident and you feel like you can go out there and do a good job.”

Looking to become a land surveyor after graduation, Dannielle hopes to eventually own her own surveying company. She believes Alfred State is preparing her and her fellow students in the best way possible for the careers they want.

“I think Alfred State is preparing us for success.”
