Start your career in surveying
If a desk job is not the thing for you, then the physical, outdoors nature of surveying is probably a better fit. You’ll be equipped with up to date knowledge of new technologies, including satellite based Global Positioning Systems and Geographic Information and have the practical skills to work in a range of surveying projects including land development and mining.
Your studies will include Queensland or New South Wales cadastral surveying or both if you like.
