Study Land Surveying
The Bachelor of Science in Land Surveying is only offered by two Universities in South Africa. At the University of KwaZulu-Natal it is a small yet vibrant programme which offers its students the advantages of close contacts with their lecturers and fellow students. In addition to the academic requirements, during our annual survey camps for first, second and third year of study, students are involved in practical work to support development of our National Nature Reserves throughout the Province of KwaZulu-Natal.

  • The first year of study involves mainly foundation courses common to engineering students (maths, applied maths and physics). Students also acquire basic geomatics and computing skills.

  • During the second and third years students deepen their skills in geomatics, land rights and town planning so that they are able to tackle a wide variety of engineering, administrative and legal tasks. In these middle years students are allowed to select a total of six modules from outside the geomatics programme, so as to equip each with skills relevant to the specific career he or she intends following. 

  • The fourth year focuses on management and professional skills and on preparation and presentation of individually chosen research projects.

  • In the vacations most of our students work in the geomatics industry, acquiring practical skills and acquainting themselves with opportunities and personalities that will help them after graduation.
