Surveying and Spatial Sciences 50th Anniversary

Welcome to the webpage of the 50th Anniversary of the UTAS Surveying and Spatial Sciences discipline.

This year we welcome current and former staff, alumni, current students and friends to join us in an exciting program of celebratory events. The 50th anniversary celebrations are an opportunity for our Alumni to reconnect with their university, their discipline, current students and each other. We are excited to catch up with you all at these events and via this webpage over the coming year.

The University is proud that our discipline holds a key role nationally in an industry that is among the nation’s fastest growing sectors. Many highly respected surveyors and spatial scientists nationally and around the globe have been educated here at the University of Tasmania.

Our teaching has always been well connected to the world class research conducted by academic staff, associates, postdoctoral researchers, and our research higher degree students. Together we continue to employ our disciplinary skills and knowledge to help address problems of great social and physical significance such as changing climates, rising sea levels, and biodiversity conservation.

We look forward to inspiring a new generation of surveyors and geospatial scientists, forging new connections, enhancing existing relationships and catching up with our alumni and friends during this 50th anniversary year.
