What will I learn?

Your career outdoors

Experience the great outdoors working as a Surveyor or Surveyor’s Assistant, with UniSQ’s Associate Degree of Spatial Science (Surveying). The Associate Degree of Spatial Science will give you the freedom of choice to start up your career or set a stepping stone for further study.

Why Surveying?

If you’re an outdoors kind of person, then surveying might be just what you’re looking for. Through the course you will be equipped with the knowledge to apply to new technologies, such as satellite based Global Positioning Systems and Geographic Information to a broad range of surveying projects including land development and mining. With the knowledge you’ll gain from your Associate Degree, you will have the opportunity to begin your career as a Surveying Assistant, Technician or Associate.

Professional accreditation

When you graduate with your Associate Degree you are eligible for registration with the Surveyors Board of Queensland as well as for membership with the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute Australia.
