Pre-requisite: PSG4111 and Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: BSPS or BSPH or BURP. Students must complete PSG4111 and PSG4112 in the same year.


Project work undertaken by individuals is a central part of surveying, planning and spatial science practice. At the professional engineer/spatial scientist level project work routinely involves research in the sense that there are non-standard requirements to be met and non-standard problems to be overcome. This course requires the student to complete the project commenced in PSG4111 Research Project Part 1, and to report the complete work (PSG4111 Research Project Part 1 and PSG4112 Research Project Part 2 together) in the form of an academic journal paper.

Following satisfactory progress in PSG4111 Research Project A in the preceding semester of offer, and with the continuing guidance of supervisor/s, the student will further develop skills spanning both the technical and non-technical dimensions of planning, surveying and spatial science at the professional level. The student will study and replicate the rationale, style and format of the journal paper and present the total project work (comprising PSG4111 Research Project A and PSG4112 Research Project B) as a journal paper.
