The Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI) is Australia's peak body representing the interests of surveying and spatial science professionals, combining the disciplines of land surveying, engineering & mining surveying, cartography, hydrography, remote sensing and spatial information science.
How Do I Become A Spatial Professional?
Students, upon graduating high school, can begin either tertiary study through their university or they can even do vocational education through another tertiary body like TAFE. Upon completion of these courses, and perhaps beforehand, apply for a job in the area you are studying. This is why networking is so important, and being involved in the Surveying and Spatial Science Institute can introduce you to future employers.
