Entry Requirements for Admission of Students



Ghana home of Professional Surveying Course. Our survey training course is designed for new entrants into the Geomatics industry, or those with experience but want to sharpen their knowledge in formal training.


There are currently some few institutions that train in the field of some aspects of geo-spatial technologies notable, the Geomatic Engineering Departments of KNUST and UMAT. These provide academic research type of training for managerial personnel but not the focused trades-hands-on training required at the field and middle levels. That leaves only the Ghana Survey school which originally was setup to train technical officers for the Survey Division. By their initial mandate, they regulated and limited intakes once every three years, until recently when they opened up for expanded numbers that may want to work outside the Department after training. This led to a situation where this school is now highly over-subscribed annually. There is therefore the clear demand and need for other avenues for training the high levels of SHS graduates that would branch into acquiring skills instead of pursuing academic research degrees. Again, our student who pass their courses successfully will have the opportunity of doing attachment with members of Ghana Licensed Surveyors Association, leading to employment in the surveying industry.


BEACON INSTITUTE OF SURVEYING ENGINEERING AND MAPPING (BISEM), is a Land and Engineering Survey Institution meant to expose students to the rudiments of Land surveying and Mapping. It is located at No. 2 NII KODIA STREET West Adenta. Application of Geospatial Technologies is a rapidly growing approach to hands on problem solving approach with complete entrepreneurial development of the individual. The vision of our training is to provide support for the individual to develop employable and entrepreneurial skills and expertise within the shortest possible time. Our focused training would be on that Geospatial technologies include field surveying and Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Database designing, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Satellite remote sensing and drone technologies.

    I enrolled in the BISEM program in order to switch careers. I learned the basics of Land Surveying, and with that skill I was able to obtain my present position as an external evaluator of land engineering, I also use many of the statistical skills I learned in other BISEM courses, especially principal component analysis, taught in the multivariate entrepreneurial course. I cannot overstate the importance of the BISEM program. It has been valuable to me. It is one of the best investments I have made.”

    As a student in BISEM program, I gained both the skills and confidence to thoughtfully use a variety of technical approaches in my work. The courses in Geomatics survey design, multiple regression, has really helped in shaping my career. The instructors in each course were patient, understanding, and highly skilled. I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to expand their skills to meet industry requirement. BISEM fantastic program truly changed my career trajectory for the better!”

    I am a teacher by profession, from the University of Winneba. I was originally interested in increasing my knowledge on land Survey engineering, so I applied for the BISEM HND programme. I was so impressed by the level of support and structure the courses and instructors offered, though, that I decided to pursue the Masters degree. I am so thankful to be part of this program. I have learned so much and cannot imagine reading, let alone conducting, research without the skills I have learned through this program.
    Many Thanks to BISEM.
