Program aims

The Bachelor of Spatial Science (Honours) program provides students with the educational requirements to become a professional spatial scientist and the ability to undertake postgraduate studies. The program equips students with a core of theoretical, scientific, analytical, managerial, professional, research and communication skills that will permit them to undertake an in-depth study of the fundamental science and practice of spatial science in one of two fields: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or Surveying. The program provides students with sufficient knowledge of surveying and spatial information systems to be eligible to gain employment, certification and, where appropriate, registration as a Professional Surveyor or Spatial Scientist.

In addition, students obtain knowledge of the natural, legal, commercial, industrial and social environments in which they will function as professionals. The program instils in students the need for continuing professional development and is designed to identify, and award honours to, students who have the capacity to undertake study at an advanced level and to make an original contribution to the fundamental science and practice of spatial science. The class of honours will be determined by academic performance. Refer to the Honours section of this entry for further details.
