Stream Outline

The BE in Geospatial Engineering is a four year, full time degree program. This program aims to prepare a graduate for a broad range of career opportunities in the various branches of Surveying and the numerous Spatial Information disciplines. To this end the program covers general scientific and IT principles, as well as specialised Surveying and Spatial Information topics. Specialisation is provided for through the provision of elective courses offered in the third and fourth years of the program and the choice of a targeted final year thesis project often aligned with an external industry partner.

Suggestions for course sequences consistent with timetabling and availability can be found on the School website The timing of the general education courses and elective courses may be modified to optimize the student's choice of courses.While some courses are given twice a year, many courses are given only once a year. In addition, courses may have prerequisites and exclusions. Thus students should plan their enrolments appropriately.

Stream Structure

The day to day administration of the stream is conducted through the School of Civil & Environmental Engineering, to which enquires should be directed.

This page outlines the core rules for the Surveying stream stream when taken as part of a single or dual award. The requirements will total 168 units of credit, and students will be required to complete 60 days of Industrial Training before the BE (Hons) may be awarded. Refer to the main program page for additional program requirements for the single or dual award programs.

Full time students complete four (24 UOC) courses per semester.
