Geomatic Engineering is the study of the science and technologies of 3D measurement, mapping and visualisation. This course 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 Geomatics will complete the Bachelor of Environments with a major in Geomatics, 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
A major in Geomatics in the Bachelor of Environments consists of:
* 112.5 points (9 subjects) of Geomatics subjects;
* 25 points (2 subjects) of core first year subjects (Natural Environments and Reshaping Environments);
* 25 points (2 subjects) of breadth subjects required for the major (Calculus 1 and Linear Algebra).
This is in addition to elective subjects and breadth subjects to make up the 300 points required for the degree.
