GIS and Surveying & Mapping

Surveying, Mapping and GIS have a long history at Newcastle University. Led by the University’s Geomatics group, there are two degree courses:

  • BSc Hons Surveying and Mapping Science
  • BSc Hons Geographic Information Science

These courses attract students from a wide range of backgrounds including: science; geography; maths; and ICT. Field and practical work are key parts of the courses. And there are fantastic links to employers for both placement and graduate jobs.

From satellite analysis of environmental change, to precision measurement of major civil engineering projects, these courses really do help you to see the world differently.
