What is Surveying?

What do a murder, an earthquake, a satellite and a ‘’for sale’’ sign have in common?

If you think surveyors just hammer pegs into the ground - think again.

Modern surveyors help police at crime scenes, they predict earthquakes, they use computer imaging and satellites to monitor environmental change, they map the ocean floor – they are women and men-  and of course, they tell you where your land ends and your neighbour’s begins.  They also get great money and travel the world.

What’s more - Australia can’t get enough of them – we don’t have enough young surveyors to meet future demand.

Since the beginning of recorded history, people have needed to measure and map their world.  Surveyors are the professional experts in land measurement, information and management.

Surveying is the career which leads you anywhere.

It gets you out of the office and into the wildest corners of the globe.

But if technology is your passion, modern surveying is witnessing an explosion in high-tech data management. Job opportunities are booming.

Surveyors transform ideas into plans, and plans into reality.

But what do they actually do?
