Surveying Technology has gained importance in the recent years due to the growing applications of GIS ,GPS and Digital Photogrammetry in various fields. Many organisations , both in the public and private sectors have recently started new ventures and taken up projects in the applications of Surveying and Mapping. It is expected that Infrastucture Development Surveys will be a major activity in the forthcoming 5-year plan. Projects of such national importance would require well trained manpower which is systematically trained in all the disciplines of Surveying and Mapping. All private candidates who have undergone training in STI, in the various branches of Surveying and Mapping have found immediate employment in the Govt, Public and Private Sectors. Survey Training Institute is equipped with the most modern Instruments, Computer facilities and Hardware and software. With emphasis on sustainable development , the activities on Geo-informatics will multiply , resulting in the need for trained man power for symantic development of spatial database.
The pressure for developing human resources in this specialised field is already being felt at Survey Training Institute, which is meeting the requirements by running Tailored courses to train professionals in the specific fields of GIS, GPS, Geodesy, Map Projections, Photogrammetry, Cartography, Remote Sensing, Large Scale Survey using Total Station, Topographical Surveying, Cadastral Surveying, Mine Surveying and Map Printing.
The Alumni of Survey Training Institute are already finding prestigious employment in the private and public sectors, the heartening feature being that many private organisations dealing with the delivery of expert systems to various users are training their employees in IIS&M.
With our commitment to make IIS&M, a premier organisation devoted towards creating professionals in spatial database creation, we shall in future, be also adding many new user-oriented courses, which will further enhance the employability of our trainees.
The following are some of the Private Organisations which have employed our trainees:
