Bachelor of Science (BSc.) in Surveying and Geographic Information Sciences

Programme Code: UBSSGISFX

The Bachelor of Science Degree is a diverse programme aimed at preparing the graduate for career opportunities in Surveying and associated fields, particularly Geographic Information Sciences. Surveying encompasses land information management and the use of the latest technology, including satellites for positioning and remote sensing. This information is managed and presented using sophisticated computer systems. The programme recognizes these needs and that graduates may be called upon to act primarily as professional surveyors, geographic information scientists, consultants, managers, teachers or researchers and indeed graduates may take on several of those roles during their careers.
