You will have ample opportunities to develop skills and experience to understand the functions and limitations of different equipment used in surveying, the necessity for regular calibration, error measurement and quality assurance processes, and the important role of government regulatory processes, legislation, and professional standards.
Embedded in the professional practice of surveying is the ethical responsibility to acknowledge the Aboriginal, Torres Straight Islanders and Māori Peoples’ as Traditional Indigenous Owners of the lands upon which we work and to pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
This degree strongly links theory and practice. Most subjects incorporate extensive practical work to build skills as well as knowledge. Practical work is based on industry-standard equipment, the same tools you will find in the workplace. To become a skilled surveyor, you will spend a certain amount of time in a dedicated field station at the Bundoora campus to acquire needed experience.
You will learn through a mix of teaching approaches including, lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, practical and laboratory sessions and site visits, using face-to-face, online, and other flexible delivery mechanisms.
Ongoing assessments throughout the semester may include tests, quizzes, essays, reports, presentations, projects, and assignments.
