What is Surveying?

The undergraduate degree leads to registration in NSW as a cadastral or mining surveyor, with focus on legal boundaries, land management and town planning, with options for transport, construction and water engineering. Major studies include surveying and geospatial engineering for land development and management, land law, engineering and mining surveying, offshore and hydrographic surveying, photogrammetry and remote sensing, precise GPS surveying and navigation, and the preparation of maps and other digital products.

Career Opportunities

You could work in land development and planning, cadastral surveying, hydrographic surveying, engineering and mining surveying, precise measurement and positioning, cartography, environmental monitoring and in a variety of geospatial IT industries.

Professional Recognition

The degree of BE in Surveying is recognised by the Board of Surveying and Spatial Information of New South Wales as meeting the requirements for entry as a candidate to become a Registered Surveyor. The degree is also recognised by the Institution of Surveyors (New South Wales Inc), the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute, and Engineers Australia, for admission as corporate members.
