Diploma of Surveying

National ID: CPP50116 | State ID: BAI4

 

Extend your studies and knowledge of surveying

This course will further develop your skills by teaching you how to operate sophisticated surveying equipment and software for conducting more complex engineering surveys, including road design and set out surveys and more complex surveying tasks.

This Diploma has a focus on geodetic surveying including how to conduct geodetic surveys and perform computations. You will also develop industry-specific skills including how to design basic engineering structures and plan spatial data collection. A large selection of electives is available, such as producing maps for land management purposes, producing mine drawings and how to set out stormwater systems.

When you complete this Diploma, you will be eligible for an Associate membership of the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute (Engineering and Mining Commission).

This course may also be studied off campus provided you are employed in an appropriate work place and can have your work certified by a supervising surveyor.. You will need to have completed CPP40216 Certificate IV in Surveying to meet the entrance requirements for this Diploma qualification.

Local full time students

Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.

Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.
