Surveying Degrees in Australia

Study Surveying Degrees

Surveying, also referred to as building surveying by some universities, looks at assessing the two- or three-dimensional positions of points, as well as the distances and angles between them. This information is important if any kind of building or construction is due to happen in a space, as it allows the surveyor to understand the environment and pass on any relevant information to those involved in the construction.

There are several career paths available to graduates of surveying. These include surveyor, civil engineer and construction manager, among others. In some countries, you may also need a professional qualification in order to work as a surveyor.

Your degree will be delivered through a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, and might also involve practical work. Depending on your course, you may also have the opportunity to take part in a work placement. Modules you study might include:

  • Built environment
  • Design and surveying skills
  • Material science
  • Law in construction
