As you build up your knowledge of their projects you will gain responsibility for writing programs and link software between in-house systems to create client solutions.

Desirable skills

  • Computer Programming –this one is essential, manipulating data is what you enjoy. We can consider any language but most useful immediately would be VB.net and Python.
  • Photography – using a camera in manual mode, understanding how they work and what the settings do! An interest in photography would be a real advantage.
  • Surveying - previous knowledge of traditional and/or modern surveying techniques
  • 3D Scanning – experience or an interest in 3D scanning, either in a surveying context or otherwise would be useful
