Spatial Systems is the study of the science and technologies of 3D measurement, mapping and visualisation. This major provides the opportunity to acquire skills in modern, sophisticated technologies such as global positioning system (GPS), three dimensional computer visualisations, geographic information systems (GIS), surveying, and satellite and photographic image processing.

Careers and Further Study

Students pursuing a career in Spatial Systems will complete the Bachelor of Environments with a major in Spatial Systems, followed by the two-year Master of Engineering (Geomatics). The five-year Bachelor-Master combination leads to professional accreditation by Engineers Australia and the Institution of Surveyors, Australia. For more information on the Masters of Engineering and graduate careers, please visit the Melbourne School of Engineering web site: http://eng.unimelb.edu.au

Intended learning outcomes

By the end of a three year Bachelor of Environments degree with a Spatial Systems major, students will have developed a sound understanding of technologies used in one of the fastest growing IT industries in the world today.
