About Land Surveying

Land surveying is the technique, profession, and science of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional position of points and the distances and angles between them, commonly practiced by licensed surveyors, and members of various building professions. These points are usually on the surface of the Earth, and they are often used to establish land maps and boundaries for ownership, locations (building corners, the surface location of subsurface features), or other governmentally required or civil law purposes (property sales).

This Diploma in Land Surveying course extends your knowledge with increased practice and engagement with digital technologies and surveying tools that map and display information from multiple databases.

Professionals in this field use new and developing technologies such as GPS, satellite imagery, laser scanning, and fast computing to create complex layers of interconnected geographic information. Today surveyors can measure position very accurately. Geospatial information constantly reveals new insights about our world and our place in it.

Land surveyors are in great demand in various sectors including oil and gas, mining, infrastructure, construction, and civil engineering but whatever field you enter, you can be sure that this will be a promising and lucrative life-long career. Not only will you have countless of opportunities for growth, this job also comes with a high-paying salary, the chance to work with cutting-edge technology, and the option of working outdoors instead of in an office all day. If this sounds like the right path for you, then this diploma will provide you with the skills and expertise needed to enter the industry with confidence. 

Career opportunities: Graduates in this course work in various fields including emergency services, urban planning, health, the management of natural resources, insurance, transport planning, telecommunications, with Google and with the United Nations.
