Keen athlete and Master of Geospatial Science student Caroline Coop, has made the most of her time at RMIT, combining her passions for sport with her studies in science.
Master of Geospatial Science
Global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receivers and remote sensing labs used in practical classes are useful in turning the theoretical side of lecture material into real-world problem solving.
During my bachelor degree in science, I really enjoyed the GIS (geographic information system), remote sensing and geography subjects. When I graduated I enrolled in the Master of Geospatial Information at RMIT.
I think postgraduate studies helps to deepen your understanding in an environment where colleagues and lecturers are enthusiastic and invested in the same outcomes.
RMIT has a range of versatile equipment and up-to-date facilities available to students. Global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receivers and remote sensing labs used in practical classes are useful in turning the theoretical side of lecture material into real-world problem solving.
I was able to successfully incorporate the use of equipment and facilities into my independent research project which involved two diverse subjects: sport and GIS.
RMIT has a reputation as an industry-focused university. It’s also great for socialising with plenty of sports clubs for people of different fitness levels with energetic, supportive and positive members. Social clubs are an important part of university life and a great way to enrich your learning experience. They can also help relieve any stress related to that dreaded end-of-course thesis or exam!
I competed as an athlete at Australian University Games twice. It was great to be part of a supportive team of fellow students and to represent RMIT in another state. The competition encourages socialising and teamwork and was a great way to make new friends and an important part of the RMIT experience for me.
My goal is to be a senior advisor/consultant in the geospatial or earth science industry. I aim to be fully-equipped with the right skills and knowledge to be able to independently conduct excellent work to help the wider community.
