Undergraduate

Surveying

Bachelor of Surveying - BSurv(Curtin) - B-SURV

Science and Engineering

 Surveying is a highly specialised, science-based discipline, which is concerned with the measurement, representation and management of data concerning the Earth’s physical and man-made features. Specialist areas such as cadastral studies, geodesy, photogrammetry, surveying and land information systems are included within this discipline. Related areas include remote sensing, land development and planning, mine surveying and hydrographic surveying.

This discipline has also moved into several high technology areas which include satellite positioning, laser scanning, airborne and marine navigation, digital mapping and remote sensing, specialised alignment surveying, analysis of structural deformations, and land and environmental management. Studying modern surveying calls upon elements from computing, engineering, environmental science, geography, geology, management, mathematics and physics.

This is the only comprehensive degree program in surveying in Western Australia. The fourth year of the course incorporates an honours program, which can lead directly into the Master of Philosophy (Surveying and Mapping) and the Doctor of Philosophy.
