Employment

Outlook

Demand for this occupation will grow slower than average. Surveyors will continue to be needed to certify boundary lines, work on resource extraction projects, and review sites for construction. However, drone technology will limit growth.

Opportunities will be best for surveyors who have at least a bachelor's degree and strong technical skills. Job openings will continue to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations or leave the labor force.
