About Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Surveying) / Bachelor of Business at University of Newcastle, Australia

Map the world from outer space. Surveying engineering.

At UON we train engineers capable of meeting the biggest global challenges. As a surveyor you could work as a geodesist analysing polar motion and measuring the movements of the earth's crust. You might be involved in preparation for the building of a new tunnel. Or you could work with local government, mapping flood areas and contributing to disaster preparedness.

What is surveying? Surveyors specialise in the measurement, management, analysis and display of spatial information describing the Earth and its physical features. Surveyors work on the local and global scale, on projects as diverse as the planning of local facilities, to the prediction of earthquakes and mapping of the ocean floor.

Surveyors are involved in the planning of almost all development and mapping of the land and earth. A shortage of surveyors in Australia means employment will be easy to find. Surveyors work in consultancies, private practice, the mining industry and government organisations. Average starting salaries for surveyors are great - more than $80,000 per annum.

Surveying is flexible and diverse. You may prefer hands-on fieldwork, research, or a leadership role managing people and projects. Typical positions include:

  • registered land surveyor
  • engineering surveyor
  • mining surveyor
  • hydrographic surveyor
  • town planning
  • geospatial specialist
  • geodesist

Remarkably, engineering is the most commonly held degree among the highest performing Fortune 500 CEOs - the CEOs of companies such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Tesla Motors are all engineers.

The combined degree advantage: your business skills will help you move into leadership roles in engineering, support you to start your own business or take your technical skills into a different work environment altogether.
