Bachelor of Applied Science (Surveying) Honours
During a week of work experience at the Shepparton City Council Geospatial Department I was able to use the same programs studied in my Cartography and Geospatial Science courses.
A love of drawing maps in my previous role as a graphic designer and a desire to work outside led me to study surveying at RMIT.
Being back at university has provided me with many opportunities and a rewarding change of lifestyle. Every day I'm learning something different.
The practical experiences of fieldwork at Yarra Bend have been fun and really helped me to better understand surveying in context.
The Study and Learning Centre at RMIT has also been a great resource. I've been able to get extra study support in areas I lack experience in.
During a week of work experience at the Shepparton City Council Geospatial Department I was able to apply the skills I've gained as part of my studies - using the same programs studied in my cartography and geospatial science courses.
I'm working casually at one of Victoria’s largest multi-disciplinary consultants, Spiire where I have gained experience on range of different projects, but I'm looking forward to becoming a licensed surveyor and starting a new career.
