This is the first of two courses which address the practice of professional surveying, planning and professional spatial science. The course is concerned largely with non-technical matters, independent of the specific disciplines, which involve the particular work undertaken, performance and responsibilities borne by the professional surveyor, planner and spatial scientist. The major manifestation of this professional practice is the participation in professional development activities and the planning, execution and reporting of project work.

The assessment in this course is competency-based. Students will achieve either a pass or fail for each assessment. Students need to pass all assessment items to successfully complete the course. These competency items form part of the USQ accreditation agreement with the accrediting organisation/s (where relevant).

A major portion of this course is directed at the preparation for the commencement of your final year PSG4111 Research Project A & PSG4112 Research Project B. This preparation includes consulting with supervising staff, a lecture and attendance at the annual "Project Conference" in which PSG4900 Professional Week 2 students present their completed project work to other students, staff and members of various professions.

This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students.
