Life after Study
Survey assistants help surveyors measure and analyse the position, shape and elevation of the Earth's natural features (such as hills, valleys and waterways) and to determine land boundaries for housing estates, building sites, reservoirs, roads and drainage systems.
Surveying technicians collect and analyse information and develop plans for surveyors and related professionals. They provide the basic information required for land development and redevelopment, including such activities as road-building, construction projects and subdivision of land.
