Subject Options

The following description of the Spatial Systems major aligns with the Study Plan Structure viewable on the Portal for students who commenced the Bachelor of Environments in 2015 or later.

The components within the structure of this major have been designed to enforce the requirements of both this specific major and of the course overall, e.g. the requirement that at least 62.5 points of Environments discipline subjects (which can include subjects taken within the major) are taken at each of Level 2 and Level 3.

PRE-2015 STUDENTS: Students who commenced the Bachelor of Environments prior to 2015 should refer to the handbook entry for the year they commenced in conjunction with the 2015 handbook listings for Environments elective and Breadth subject listings.

Level 1 Environments & Enabling Electives (12.5 - 25 points)

Mathematics Background

The mathematics pre-requisite of the spatial systems major should be covered – in spirit and practice – as enabling subjects (calculus 1 or calculus 2, depending on the candidate’s school math, and Linear Algebra)

In order to complete this major, enrol into the subjects below in your first year, based on your mathematics background:

  • VCE Mathematical Methods Units 1 and 2 only: Enrol in MAST10012 Introduction to Mathematics, followed by MAST10005 Calculus 1
  • VCE Mathematical Methods Units 3 and 4 with a study score of 25 or more: Enrol in MAST10005 Calculus 1
  • VCE Specialist Maths Units 3 and 4 with a study score of 30 or more: Enrol in MAST10006 Calculus 2

This requirement may be taken as breadth.
