This qualification will provide you with the necessary practical skills and knowledge to carry out the role of a surveyor involved in the collection of spatial data related to the set out and monitoring of engineering structures, roads, railways and mining operations. You will learn about the operation of sophisticated surveying equipment and software, including GPS, and the use of this equipment to carry out complex survey projects, including open pit mine operations and the processing of survey data to produce computer aided engineering drawings and mine plans.
This course covers: operation of sophisticated surveying equipment and software for conducting more complex engineering surveys including road design and setout surveys; use of specific surveying software for creating mine and engineering drawings and for solving complex engineering and geodetic computational problems; use of sophisticated GPS equipment for engineering setout and data capture; open pit mine surveying; advanced GIS.
All students will need to buy an industry standard calculator as part of their course requirements. Full details of the specific calculator required will be provided to students at the commencement of classes and should be purchased within the first 3 weeks of semester.
This course may also be studied by off campus learning provided you are employed in an appropriate work place and can have your work certified by a supervising Surveyor.
