Description

Surveying and mapping uses state-of-the-art technology and mathematical-based analysis to study the built and natural environments.

This allows us to go beyond simply observing the world around us, to collecting and analysing data about it.

There is a large market for expertise in this area and graduates of this degree are in demand, with excellent employment prospects.

This professionally accredited degree focuses on the science, technology and maths behind geographic data collection and analysis.

It spans geography, science, mathematics and ICT and will appeal to students with an interest in engineering, technology and the environment.
