What will I learn?

Surveying is an essential profession in Australia.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Surveying) uses an industry focused, project-based teaching and learning approach to develop licensed surveyors, who are well prepared to work in diverse, interdisciplinary teams to solve complex problems in a socially and culturally appropriate manner.

Graduate career-ready by completing the UniSA STEM Professional Practice Program and gain at least 450 hours of skills and competencies through a range of engagement activities such as placements, internships, guest lectures, industry panels, site visits, networking and events.

Upon graduation, you will be eligible to enter an agreement with the Surveyors Board of South Australia to undertake training in cadastral surveying, which can lead to formal licensing by the Board.

What you'll learn

In your first year, you will study core engineering courses. You’ll then move to gain specialised knowledge and skills in surveying, remote sensing, cartography, photogrammetry, business management and much more.

At least half of your honours year involves a major project. Projects are generally supported by industry clients, or based in a research centre. Our UniSA STEM Professional Practice Program allows you to apply the skills and knowledge you've acquired throughout your degree in real-world settings.

Your career

Graduates may find work with private surveying consultancies, engineers, architects and land developers. Surveyors also liaise with land-owners, service authorities and government bodies on land development.

There is a forecast shortage of surveyors across Australia. This means increased job opportunities for students considering a career in surveying over the next 10 years*.
