While there's a sound theoretical base, most subjects incorporate extensive practical work to build skills as well as knowledge.
Learning support for students includes a first-year transition program, academic staff and a strong Geospatial Science Student Association.
In the early years of this degree, you'll study the fundamentals of measurement science, cartography and spatial information science (GIS).
Other fundamental skills in mathematics, statistics and physics are also covered.
In later years, more specialised studies are offered in spatial analysis, web design, remote sensing, image analysis and professional practice.
Elective choices give you the opportunity to develop further skills in these areas or to learn more about information technology, environmental studies, planning and land administration.
From first year, you'll engage in project-based learning, tackling real-world problems and designing solutions using geospatial tools.
This continues in other years, and you'll design and undertake a substantial major project in your final year.
Practical work is based on industry-standard software and hardware, the same tools you'll find in the workplace. You'll have ample opportunities to develop skills and experience with these tools.
