About the program

As a geospatial scientist you’ll study the relationships between physical locations, people, and earth processes. And you’ll develop the skills and understanding to make connections between people, places and processes.

Begin the online Bachelor of Geospatial Science at Charles Sturt University with a solid foundation in geographic information science, remote sensing and cartography. Then build your own unique knowledge platform by specialising in information science, mathematics, ecology, geography, agriculture or emergency management.

Designed in consultation with experts to maximise industry relevance, this course gives you plenty of hands-on experience right from the start. You’ll be solving geospatial problems and diving into work placements from your first year of study.

While many geospatial science undergraduate degrees concentrate on professional surveying practice, the Bachelor of Geospatial Science takes a fresh approach. This course offers you a unique opportunity to focus on geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing in a dedicated degree.

Career opportunities

  • Geospatial science is a rapidly growing field whose graduates are in high demand around the globe. The career opportunities are excitingly diverse and span government and industry sectors.
