Course Description

This program paves your way for a career in interpreting how location has an impact on the way we interact with the world around us.

If we understand where things are and how they are connected, we better understand our world. This is what geospatial science is and this program develops professionals to work in the field.

Geospatial scientists use location as the key to collecting, managing, analysing and interpreting information.

It's a specialised discipline, so you'll enjoy the advantage of relatively small class sizes, focused content and staff who are easily accessible.

Why study geospatial science at RMIT?

  1. While you'll find elements of geospatial science in other programs, RMIT offers the only four-year undergraduate program in Victoria.
  2. The program has international accreditation with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors which also entitles graduates to membership of that Institute.
  3. Surveying and geospatial science at RMIT actively engages with industry to ensure our programs meet the needs of this rapidly expanding field and our graduates are in high demand.
