Overview

Bachelor of Science (Geospatial Science) (Honours)

This degree will prepare you to play an important role in collecting, managing, analyzing and interpreting data to meet the needs of agricultural, environmental, emergency and transportation industries.

Learning support for students includes a first-year transition program, academic coordinators for each year level and a strong Geo-spatial Science Student Association.

In the early years of the course, you'll study the fundamentals of measurement science, cartography and spatial information science (GIS).

Other fundamental skills in mathematics, statistics and physics are also covered.

In later years, more specialized studies are offered in spatial analysis, web design, remote sensing, image analysis and professional practice.

Elective choices give you the opportunity to develop further skills in these areas or to learn more about information technology, environmental studies, planning and land administration.

From first year, you'll engage in project-based learning, tackling real-world problems and designing solutions using Geo-spatial tools.

This continues in other years, and you'll design and undertake a substantial major project in your final year.

Practical work is based on industry-standard software and hardware, the same tools you'll find in the workplace. You'll have ample opportunities to develop skills and experience with these tools.

Industry connections

Many RMIT activities are guided by industry. For example, you'll undertake an exercise based on the Yarra Bend Park Strategy Plan. 

You'll survey an area of the park, then model, design and illustrate an amphitheatre to suit the local environment.

In addition, all students carry out a final-year research project that is industry-approved and reflects current best practice.

You are also expected to complete 40 days of work experience during your study. This usually takes the form of paid employment during vacation periods or as a part-time employee. RMIT may assist you with finding a placement.

Note: You will not need to pay any application fee but some of African countries will need to deposit of AU$100 application fee.
