A graduates life
Rian completed his survey degree with hydrographic papers from Otago University in 2018 and is now gainfully employed with DML. In the six weeks he’s been with us he’s spent 10 days in the office and the rest of the time in the field as a member of survey teams involved in port and harbour surveys, lake surveys and infrastructure surveys. He’s rapidly coming up to speed on a range of equipment from multibeam echosounders through to remotely operated vessels.
There’s nothing like being thrown in the deep end and occasionally he gets his feet wet with beach profiling at the Mount Maunganui Head Office.
