Study Land Surveying
The Bachelor of Science in Land Surveying (BScSur) 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 second and third year of study, students are involved in practical work to further improve their skills of undertaking hands-on practical survey tasks. These camps are usually conducted at some Nature Reserves around 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 property law tasks. 

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

  • During 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.
