The aim of this course is two fold:

The first half of the course aims to provide a broad overview of the surveying and spatial industry. Powerful Geographical Information Systems software will be introduced and combined with GPS data captured by the student. This knowledge gives context to the fundamentals of basic plane surveying such as levelling, angle measurement, distance measurement, field recording of measurements, coordinate and reference systems, terrain representation, satellite techniques for surveying (global positioning system) and applications of these techniques to solve some real world problems. The theory presented in lectures will be reinforced with practicals, assignments and tutorial exercises.

The second half of this course is an introduction to Electrical Engineering. It gives an overview of the fundamental aspects of electrical engineering. The course provides an introduction to electrical principles and provides basic technical skills to analyse simple circuits. In the practical section it provides hands-on experience in building and testing circuits. It is packaged in such a way that students, having taken this course, can go away and build some practical, useful devices afterwards.
