What does a surveying technician do?
Surveying technicians are specialists for geodata processes with a focus on performing on-site surveying. Because of this, their work is often done out of doors, for example for determining new land plots or land boundaries and for doing construction-related surveys and measurements. Survey technicians work with the geodata obtained from these measurements on the computer, in plans, maps and to prepare or update cadastres. Survey technicians make use of state-of-the-art measurement instruments such as electronic tachymeters, satellite measurement methods (GPS) and laser scanners.
Length of the apprenticeship: 3 years
Start date: 1 August 2020

Apprenticeship and training at Buck Surveying
Our 35 employees at Buck Surveying will be supporting your apprenticeship in every respect. Many of them – just like you – got started at Buck after finishing school and have stayed on at the company. Therefore, we know what it takes to make a good apprenticeship program for surveying technicians. With a solid performance and good motivation, the chances are very good to be taken on at the company with a long-term position.
You’ll be joining a company with the most modern technical equipment – whether it’s laser scanners, drones or the latest software. You will not be spending the whole day in the office at a desk, nor will you only be outside facing the elements. Despite this, you shouldn’t let rain and snow deter you. Your main responsibility will be supporting the builders of residential homes, company properties and major projects with their construction activities. In doing this, you will be working with our highly trained specialists and you’ll get lots of training and guidance from them.
In addition to the surveying work outside, you will also be operating technical software programs at your workplace in the office. To visualize the data obtained through surveying, you will learn how to transfer geodata with the help of a computer onto plans, maps and cadastres. As a surveying technician you certainly will not have a boring time on the job, because no workday, project or construction project is like another.
What is a surveying technician?
The job title “surveying technician” refers to specialists who are responsible for geodata processes. This does not only involve precise on-site surveying, but also the visualization of these data in maps and plans. With the help of special programs, surveying technicians analyze the surveyed data in the computer and put these data into various visual forms. In this way changes in maps and cadastres can be compared and monitored.
Surveying technicians take on tasks in connection with construction surveying, boundary determinations or the specification of new land plots. Surveying technicians are also needed in the construction of streets and transportation systems.
The surveying technician profession definitely has a future! Without precise and expert surveying work, buildings cannot be constructed, streets cannot be rebuilt and maps or plans cannot be properly prepared.
