Deciding what to study after school or a career change is one thing. Choosing where to study is another entirely.
There are a few different paths you will have to choose between on your way to joining the ranks of Victoria’s land surveyors. A number of educational institutions offer surveying courses and training: RMIT University provides undergraduate and postgraduate opportunities, while RMIT TAFE is focused on hand-on practical experience through their certificate and diploma study streams. The University of Melbourne’s Engineering school, meanwhile, offers both bachelor and masters courses.
You can find out further details about these educational bodies’ offerings outlined in the panel further down the page. For additional guidance, organisations like the Institute of Surveyors Victoria have information on their website that may be able to help you get a sense of what the landscape will look like once you have graduated.
Once you have become a graduate land surveyor, you will have the options to a Professional Training Agreement.
