Abstract:Maintaining the content of a surveying curriculum so that it is current requires regular reassessment of the expected future tasks of surveyors. The surveyor must be able to respond to rapid developments in computing, satellite positioning, computer graphics, image management, and spatial information systems. This paper presents a view of the expected future role of a professional surveyor and its impact on the development of the curriculum of a Bachelor of Surveying Course. Descriptions are given of the goals and principles used for the development of the revised Bachelor of Surveying Course at the University of New South Wales. The course was developed on the basis of a flexible structure comprising strands in basic sciences, computing surveying, higher surveying, land information management and professional practice. The expectation is that future modifications can be achieved within these strands without a major restructuring. The course structure and implementation procedures are presented in detail as a contribution towards the ongoing debate on curriculum design.
