Surveying and Spatial Sciences are rapidly growing disciplines. Nearly all aspects of industry, science and society are finding an increasing need for high quality information in order to make reliable decisions. Much of that information has a spatial component, a location on Earth, and involves an integrated approach to the science and technologies of measurement, mapping, analysis and visualisation of data.

This 3-year (minimum) full-time or equivalent part-time course is offered by the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology. The course is offered on the Hobart campus. Subject to unit availability, students wishing to undertake their first year of study on the Launceston campus may be able to do so.
This 3-year (minimum) full-time or part-time course is offered by the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology and is available at Hobart and Launceston. The main intake to the Bachelor of Science is February, however a mid-year intake in July is also available. Students interested in Psychology, may like to consider studying a minor in Geographic Information Systems.
(For research trained degrees, see the Research section.)
The Honours course (min 1 yr) provides students with advanced skills and research experience in a specialised area of surveying and spatial sciences.
The Graduate Certificate in Geographic Information Systems (min 1 semester) meets the needs of people who do not have prior experience of GIS and are seeking to acquire knowledge, or who have some training or workplace experience with GIS and are seeking to improve their knowledge and gain a formal qualification.
This graduate diploma (min 1 yr) meets the needs for professional development and advanced training for people working primarily in land based sciences (e.g. foresters, geographers, town planners, surveyors) who need to use spatial information science in their work or study.
This 1-year (minimum) full-time or part-time course is offered by the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology on the Hobart campus. This course, together with the Bachelor of Surveying and Spatial Sciences or its equivalent, provides the necessary qualifications for registration with the Tasmanian Land Surveyors Accreditation Board for the purposes of the Surveyors Act; and for reciprocal registration in other States of Australia.
The Master of Applied Science is a four semester full-time or eight semester part-time course offered on the Hobart and Launceston campuses by most Schools within the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology.
