My typical day at consisted of 2 activities:
1.Establishing new control points on campus, capturing and processing data (readings).from 8h30 to 1h00.
2.Assisting first year students in all their surveying related matters from 2 PM to 3;30PM.
Working with the first year student helped me understand better what i was taught as a student myself and it was the most enjoyable part of the job as i got the chance to transfer knowledge to others.
I worked with my survey lecturer,whom I reported directly to. I worked for the civil engineering department of the cape peninsula university of technology
The hardest part of the job was not being able to finish a on-field exercise due to bad because it was to be redone all over the next day.
