Want to get your foot in the door as a land surveyor but don’t know where to start? Well here’s where the journey begins!
If you are good at maths, have an interest in geography, science or IT and like the variety of being indoors and outdoors, then surveying could be the perfect career choice. It also helps if you have good organisational skills, are able to measure accurately, good at problem solving and working both individually and as part of a team.
What’s involved in the study of surveying?
Studying surveying offers lots of interesting and diverse experiences. It combines a unique mix of learning with both theoretical and practical hands-on field-work projects. The way the courses are structured often means that you can work while studying, which means you can earn some money while getting valuable experience. The courses are often smaller sizes, allowing the opportunity to develop relationships with like-minded people, providing that close support base.
Where do I study?
Deciding what to study after school or a career change is one thing. Choosing where to study is another entirely. There are many different ways you can study surveying allowing you to choose your own path. A number of educational institutions offer surveying courses and training, with universities offering undergraduate and postgraduate opportunities, while tafes offer more hands-on practical experiences through their certificate and diploma streams.
