This double degree combines studies in Geographic Information Science and Applied Geology. This course develops your unique capabilities to obtain employment in the resource development or environmental management industries, including mining and mineral exploration, ore body assessment and management, and other employment areas related to geographic information science and geology.
Resource development and environmental management increasingly rely upon the understanding and modelling of large quantities of two and three-dimensional data of surface and sub-surface features. Because underground features such as ore bodies, groundwater zones and pollution plumes are hidden deep in the ground, computer visualisation and analysis approaches are important in assisting decision making processes. As a result, this double degree provides a thorough knowledge of geological principles combined with the information technology and geographic information skills related to data analysis and modelling.
