Geospatial Surveying, Mapping & GIS

Be at the forefront of understanding, analysing and applying geospatial (location based) data to monitor the Earth and environment.

Our students gain a wide range of skills and knowledge in geospatial (location-based) surveying, mapping and GIS.

These skills support the monitoring and analysis of global issues like climate change. Our students work collaboratively with engineers from other disciplines.

Geospatial engineering and science spans geography, science, mathematics and ICT, and is the science of earth mapping at all scales.

These courses help you to see the world differently. From using lasers to create 3D models of construction projects, to using satellite positioning to model environmental changes

Abby French is our Engagement with Industry facilitator. Speaking on the benefits of the event, Abby explained, "GENIE provides a unique opportunity for professionals in the sector. Many are Newcastle Alumni. They return to the university, reconnect with staff and support the next generations of students. It’s a tremendous opportunity for our students to ‘map’ their career options and start building their own networks. We are grateful for the long-standing support of many companies. Several also support us by sitting on our industrial advisory board”.
