The spatial information profession provides fundamental assets to a nation’s information infrastructure: knowledge about where and when. Engineers in this field study the science and technologies of measurement, mapping and visualisation. For example, they work on satellite and photographic image processing, three dimensional computer visualisations and global positioning systems. Through the course, students gain practical skills and highly sought after technical knowledge to prepare them for careers in land and/or asset management for government, banks or property firms, or as surveyors in mining, construction and land agencies, among others.

Intended learning outcomes

To produce graduates who are skilled in the engineering principles of spatial information and have the ability to apply them to complex, open-ended tasks and problems.
