Surveying relies on the collection, management and presentation of information that relates to land surveying, mapping and GIS.
In the Diploma of Surveying, you'll extend your knowledge with increased practice and engagement with digital technologies and surveying tools that map and display information from multiple databases.
These skills are integral to:
- local, state and national land management programs
- building and construction projects
- environmental studies
- navigational systems
- emergency situations monitoring.
You will learn to conduct advanced Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data collection and set-out surveys, create engineering drawings, and perform advanced computations.
In the field, you will conduct precision surveys, conduct GNSS surveys, conduct engineering surveys, survey subsurface utility information and undertake site surveys and set-out procedures for building projects
There is a focus on geodetic surveying, including how to perform geodetic and complex surveying computations.
In the office, you will become more experienced with capturing new spatial data, developing spreadsheets for spatial data and developing 2-D and 3-D terrain visualisations engaging in practical and laboratory exercises.
We offer industry exposure through regular seminars with guest speakers, and opportunities to take part in simulated survey activities at our Bundoora campus field station.
Please note, this qualification is not related to building surveying.
