Course Description

The spatial industry helps us understand our world and to solve issues relating to the environment, hazards and development – from local community to a global scale.

The spatial industry helps us understand our world and to solve issues relating to the environment, hazards and development – from local community to a global scale.

The spatial sciences can be part of our daily lives, such as using Google Maps to find the closest coffee shop. They can also be put to specialised use, such as a coach monitoring how far a footballer has run in a game. Even video game companies are using spatial technology to develop topography, maps and rendering to add detail and realism to games.

The Bachelor of Geospatial Science is designed to deliver practical learning. There is a focus on fieldwork and problem solving from the very beginning. You will gain skills you can transfer to the workplace and graduate ready to enter the geospatial industry, or to continue with a Master of Surveying. This degree is recommended by the Surveyors Board of South Australia as pathway into a career in surveying1.

You can complete this degree together with the Bachelor of Environmental Science in four years. You can discuss this option once you have enrolled with UniSA.
