Diploma in Land Surveying

This course combines engineering, architecture and geography skills to establish boundaries of land, water and airspace to determine property ownership, development and use. 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.
