    Spatial Information is a rapidly expanding field fuelled by the growth in information and communication technology, satellites for imaging and positioning, and the web and communication infrastructure for access to spatial data using smart devices. Spatial information is an essential and indispensable part of any economy’s infrastructure and graduates of this discipline are in strong demand.
    The Master of Engineering (Spatial) focuses on the science and technology of measurement, mapping and visualisation. You will develop sought-after skills in geographic information systems (GIS), measurement, mapping and visualisation, three-dimensional computer visualisations, surveying and satellite and photographic image processing.

    This course will provide you with a formal qualification in spatial information at the Masters level.


    One of the following undergraduate degrees with a Spatial Systems major:
    with a weighted average mark of at least H3 (65%).

    The spatial information industry comprises remote sensing from satellites, aircraft and ground-based sensors, global positioning systems, conventional surveying, geographic information systems and all forms of data with a geographic coordinate. There is a growing demand for expertise in spatial information, along with a current labour shortage in Australia, ensuring graduates a range of well-paid employment opportunities.

    Career opportunities exist in roles relating to land and surveying, in environmental remote sensing, disaster management and in firms specialising in land and resource management, mapping, three dimensional visualisation and spatial data infrastructure. You will find work with organisations such as Geomatic Technologies, Spatial Vision, Photomapping Services, the Office of the Surveyor-General, Reeds Consulting and Geoscience Australia.
