- How did you get into surveying?
When I was a student, I had no idea what surveying is and I never thought that surveying even existed as a career. Initially, I studied Geography at high school and interested in the map production. It was a chance studying in Geomatics at university that prompted me to join the surveying industry. After my graduation, I undertook a 2 years professional training and then successfully passed the Assessment of Professional Competence. Afterward, I am taking up the role of land surveyor until now.
