Surveyors design, build, value and manage everything around us. Change the world with the art of Surveying!!


About this course:

From skyscrapers like Bhurj Khalifa to Bhakra Nangal Dam to biggest sports stadiums, planned forest reserves to Tomorrowland festival sites, shopping center to sea ports or the homes we likve in, everything starts with the Surveying.

This course introduces you with in-depth knowledge required by individuals for conducting effective surveying and mapping in civil engineering and architecture. You will learn about the types of equipment used for land surveying and various tools used for angle measurement, height measurement, distance measurement and area measurement. This whole process includes 3 steps, that covers understanding principals of operating surveying equipment, then interpreting the surveying data result that has been precisely collected and finally using the correct measurement calculations to generate a useful and meaningful blueprint.

This course is a combination of videos as online lectures, assignment and a discussion forum for queries.


Key Features:

Fully online with video lectures

Timeline – Flexible deadlines to complete at your own pace

Language – English

Hands-on classroom training – Practical training available after

course completion


**After the course is completed, you will be able to opt for a classroom training program of 2 days to 1 week depending on your training requirements at the nearest location possible.


Career opportunities

Licensed Land Surveyor, Architectural Site Surveyor, Project Surveyor, Contractor, Engineers, and working crew career opportunities.



All DIYguru courses are self-paced and you can cover the course videos and assignments with your own pace. Once you have successfully completed the course, you will earn a Certificate of

Course Completion from DIYguru that includes a serial number of authentication as well. You can use that certificate as part of your resume, or proof of skills you gained or during job interviews where having an edge above others always makes a difference in final selection.


Why take this course?

Surveying may be an established profession, but constant innovation means new technology is changing the face of the industry. From drones to lasers, 3D printers to virtual reality – surveying is at the forefront of technology.
 Mobile mapping: using specialist drones, ground penetrating radar and laser scanners, surveyors can map anything, anywhere in the world.
 Artificial intelligence: smart computers that learn through the experience like machines that help surveyors design, or driverless cars that can gather data from dangerous places.
 3D modeling: surveyors use augmented reality and other technology to make interactive 3D models of buildings – like Minecraft, but with the instructions to build a skyscraper.
 Virtual reality: presenting an alternative reality to people – taking a property tour, or inspecting a construction site, from your home.
 The internet of things: connecting objects so they can transfer information without human interaction, such as wind turbines telling each other way the wind direction.
 Smart cities: using data and technology to monitor and manage what’s happening in a city to improve quality of life.


Who should take this course?

All the Recent civil engineering graduates, diploma holders and architect students who want to be analytical, organized and see a long career in the field of building mega projects should take all the knowledge from this course.

As a surveyor, you can build your professional career as a:
 building surveyor – build, supervise or restore structures, from city office blocks and skyscrapers to home extensions
 project management surveyor – manage and organize a range of teams to get the best value and quality from projects, within the set timescale
 building control surveyor – design and manage the use of buildings to make sure they comply with law and regulations
 quantity surveyor – assess and evaluate the financial impact of construction projects to ensure the best value for money
 infrastructure surveyor – ensure the effective running and connecting of cities, including rail, road, broadband, and electricity.

      Outstanding! 5

      I spent at least 2 hours daily working on the course and this course week took me a month to complete. The problem sets are designed in such a way that one is forced to read and do further research to accomplish them.
