Marzena Mazurek is a Geospatial Engineer at Rodriguez Consulting
After completing a degree in Surveying Engineering at AGH University of Science and Technology (considered to be the best school in its field in Poland), I started working for a land surveying company in Krakow (Poland) where I was responsible for collecting and systematizing cadastral data of parcels and buildings for Land Parcel Identification System for European Union. My duties included performing boundary surveys, analyzing survey reports orthoimagery processing and interpretation, digitizing, and mapping.
How did you become interested in Land Surveying?
My adventure with land surveying and civil engineering began a few years ago in Poland, which is the country of my origin. I always knew that I wanted to pursue a career which would allow me to utilize my personal and professional interests. Geography, geology, maps and mathematics were always my passion so studying geodesy and cartography and pursuing this career seemed to be a perfect match for my future. I graduated at the top of my class, and I received many scholarships and awards for my scholar achievements. A key to those accomplishments was not only my hard work, but also the fact, that I really enjoyed studying something I felt passionate about.
I have always had curiosity and ability to learn new technologies, what is important in industry which undergoes very fast changes. Finally, I wanted a career which would let me work as a part of a team.
