RMIT's Bachelor of Geospatial Science (Honours) will teach you to apply scientific principles in professional practice as well as develop research skills.This degree will prepare you to play an important role in collecting, distributing, storing, managing, analysing and communicating geospatial information to meet the societal demands in agriculture, transportation and logistics, energy, retail, defence and intelligent operations, emergency services, insurance, health care, environment and natural resources, and government sectors.Throughout your geospatial studies, you will engage in project-based learning, tackling real-world problems and designing solutions using geospatial technology.From Google Maps to GPS navigators, spatial science is everywhere and is relied on for geospatial technology to determine where things are, and how they are related. Gain specialised knowledge to meet the needs of AI-based geospatial solutions and increased demand for geospatial scientists.
