Digital Infrastructure Engineering Systems

What will I study?


You’ll develop knowledge in spatial measurement and analysis for both built and natural environments. This means you’ll be able to write and read software algorithms, plot data and create digital representations of our physical world.

Your studies will cover topics such as:

  • Land surveying and mapping
  • Remote sensing
  • Geographic information systems (GIS)
  • Image processing
  • Land administration

Your major structure

You can study this major through the Bachelor of Design or Bachelor of Science.

In both degrees, you’ll deepen your understanding of digital infrastructure engineering systems and take specialised study in your third year to complete the major. In your third year, you’ll undertake a capstone subject, which draws together all the theory and practical skills of your studies to challenge you with a project.

Depending on whether you choose to study Science or Design, you’ll take complementary subjects that will support the major or your interests. You’ll complete prerequisites in mathematics and foundational mapping, GIS and surveying subjects.

In the Bachelor of Design you can choose to study one or two majors, a major and a minor or a major and a specialisation.
