Mine and engineering surveying are specialist areas of modern day surveying. Mine surveyors measure underground and open-cut mines in detail, helping mining companies locate new mines safely. Engineering surveyors work on construction and infrastructure projects to ensure challenging building specifications are met.
Curtin offers the only comprehensive degree in mine and engineering surveying in Western Australia. In this course you will develop skills in marking out, measurement and maintenance of direction for all surface and underground workings on a mine site. You will also learn how to prepare and update mine surveying plans for open-pit and underground workings.
In your engineering surveying units, you will learn how to ensure civil engineering works are placed in their correct positions and orientations, with respect to all three dimensions.
The first two years of the course are taught at our main campus in Perth, while the third year is taught at the WA School of Mines in Kalgoorlie, with exposure to real-world environments and practices.
This major prepares you with the appropriate practical experience for operational management at the quarry manager level.
This is the only comprehensive degree program in mine and engineering surveying in Western Australia. An additional year for honours program is available, which can lead directly into the Master of Philosophy and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).
