Introduction
A candidate who has completed the Third Examination of the Bachelor of Agricultural Science with sufficient
merit will be invited by the Head of School to enrol for the degree of Bachelor of Agricultural Science with
Honours.

Admission & Prerequisites
Prospective Honours students must gain a minimum 65% credit average in year 3 of the BAgrSc course. Eligible
students will be notified of their acceptance following publication of year-3 results.

Objectives
The BAgrSc(Hons) program aims to provide:

 *   Advanced knowledge and scientific training in a specialised area of agricultural science;
 *   Training in research as preparation for employment in a research organisation or for postgraduate study in
     Master or PhD programs.

Career Outcomes
Students are well prepared for employment in research and other positions with industry, government and
business organisations. An Honours degree also enables graduates to apply to undertake a Masters or PhD degree.

Articulation From Course
Candidates with other tertiary studies may be granted status for work completed and deemed appropriate to this
degree.

Articulation To Course
Honours graduates may apply for entry into a Masters or PhD degree.

Professional Recognition
Graduates of the course are eligible for membership of the Australian Institute of Agricultural Science and
Technology (AIAST)

Course Structure
Honours candidature is by invitation only. Honours students must enrol in KLA491 [BAgrSc(Hons) 0%] and
KLA490 [Research Project 25%], (making up the balance to 100%) with two compulsory and four other units.
Students with less than 100% loading may still be eligible for enrolment in the course.
The formal coursework grade will be assessed on a weighted grade average (WGA). WGA = (G x W) / 75 where G
values are: HD = 4; DN = 3; CR = 2; PP = 1. The same formula applies to students not carrying the full formal
coursework load. A student in this latter situation may elect to enrol in additional subjects to make up the full 4th-
year load.
Assessment of Honours is based on the combination of formal coursework (60%) and project thesis (40%) of the
4th-year program.
 Note:
Three copies of the thesis must be submitted to the secretary by the first week in December. The Honours thesis
should be completed according to the notes and instructions available from the Honours coordinator.
There shall be the following grades of Honours: 1st Class; 2nd Class, Upper Division; 2nd Class, Lower Division;

3rd Class.
Students may withdraw from Honours up to the end of semester 1 without penalty. However, to complete their
degree, they must, in semester 2, enrol in suitable units to make up the balance, one of which may include an
extensive literature review (KLA483) which will be subject to an examination, possibly including a viva voce. (The
topic of the literature review is to be decided after consultation with appropriate staff).

higher degree students in this area. The educational objectives of the new Bachelor of Antarctic Studies degree are
to provide students with knowledge, competencies, skills and awareness of a variety of subjects linked together by
the common theme of Antarctic studies. The course will have two streams - Antarctic Life Science or Antarctic
Physical Sciences - allowing for different emphases in specialisation.
This course specifically aims to prepare students for employment in either scientific or policy-related areas.
Students will also be well prepared to continue their studies into an Honours-level program with the Institute of
Antarctic and Southern Ocean Studies and onwards to a research higher degree.

Career Outcomes
Career outcomes are similar to the Bachelor of Science, but as this course focuses on Antarctic Studies, it is
particularly suitable for students planning a scientific career and who wish to contribute to the understanding of
the Antarctica and its surrounding oceans. The Australian Antarctic Division, which administers Australia_s wide-
ranging activities in Antarctic and subantarctic regions and is headquartered in Hobart, would be the most
significant employer of research scientists along with CSIRO Marine Science, ACE Co-operative Research Centre
and others. Students with a science background will also be able to foster careers in the policy area relating to the
Antarctic.

Articulation From Course
Credit for relevant units will be given to transferring students.

Introduction
This 2-year graduate entry degree course is offered, full time only, by the Faculty of Science, Engineering and
Technology and is available only at Launceston through the School of Architecture.

Admission & Prerequisites
To enter the Bachelor of Architecture, applicants will have the Bachelor of Environmental Design or equivalent 3-
year undergraduate degree.
Applicants' first degree program will have been in environmental design, architectural studies, or equivalent, and
the main emphasis or major will have been in architecture. In addition, students will be asked to attend an
interview and submit a portfolio of work which preferably should include items both from their previous studies
and from relevant activities, such as office practice.
Candidates should note that, because there are limited places available, the minimum requirements for admission
will not automatically guarantee entry to the course.

Objectives
The course is aimed specifically at the needs of the architectural profession and aims to equip students with the
knowledge, skills, competencies and awareness which are necessary for a graduate to practise architecture.
To complete the BArch successfully, students are required to demonstrate competence in the analysis, synthesis,
judgement and communication of architectural ideas and solutions, as well as the ability to apply successfully
acquired theoretical knowledge, and technical and professional skills.

Career Outcomes
Architects deal with a broad range of issues. Consequently, the study of architecture covers a broad range of
disciplines and skills. This means that architects may find a career in private architectural practice, government
architectural offices, local government, performing arts, universities (as academics or in property management),
and large companies. Architects may be engaged in a wide range of tasks: commercial, residential, retail and civic
building design (conceptual and technical); client brief writing; urban design, planning appeal submissions,
representation and also assessment; stage set and exhibition design; and property and construction management.
Many Australian graduates in architecture have established careers in various countries around the world.

Professional Recognition
The Bachelor of Architecture is recognised by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects (RAIA) as fulfilling the
academic requirements for corporate membership. BArch graduates are eligible for registration by Australian
Boards of Architects following an approved practical experience program and a pass in the Architectural Practice
examination. Recognition by the RAIA offers opportunities for international recognition of the professional
qualification.

Introduction
In addition to the other units comprising the BArch, students will undertake the unit KDA500. This unit carries a
zero weighting and will be run as a series of special tutorials within existing BArch units DS9 (KDA511) and PP
(KDA521). These tutorials are aimed at developing a student's special research/design interests within the areas in
which the School of Architecture and staff have recognised research strengths. In the DS9 studio those enrolled in
Hons would be required to produce a written paper of 5,000 words or equivalent outlining their ethos in relation
to their project (this could also involve a more scientific or historical approach if it relates to the student's Honours
interests).
In the PP (KDA521) unit honours students prepare the equivalent of a 10,000 word exegesis that would give
specific focus to their PP design project. This focus may be in any of the school's interest areas eg theory, history,
learning by making, computing, ESD etc.

Admission & Prerequisites
Admission to the BArch(Hons) will be limited to those who gain a grade point average of 65% or higher during the

Major for non-computing students
This major provides a thorough introduction to the theory and practice of computing. It is an
opportunity for students who wish to combine computing with their specialisation to obtain a
qualification in computing within a non-computing degree structure.
A major consists of a sequence of 8 units taken over a three-year full-time degree program or
equivalent part time.
Students must select a sequence of units from the computing units as listed in the schedule of
units for a major in computing which follows the BComp Schedule. (At least four of the units
must be at third-year level.)
Students in the

BSc program should consult the schedules for that course.

The BTeach component prepares beginning teachers in all the appropriate major areas of professional competence.
These competencies include an understanding of, and ability to practice teaching as an active, interactive process
involving the mutual construction of ideas, understandings, sensibilities and skills rather than the mere
transmission of information; an understanding of the content, conceptual ordering and methods of inquiry of
relevant subject areas; of how students learn and develop with individual differences; of the relationship between
content knowledge and the process of teaching and the ability to plan and manage the teaching and learning
process in an effective, inclusive and engaging manner; of alternative teaching practices in particular contexts with
particular kinds of content; and of students, their development, the contexts that they live and learn in, including
how teaching and learning outcomes are embedded in, and structured by, a variety of broad cultural and social
processes. The program enables beginning teachers to communicate, interact and work with students of diverse
abilities, interests and backgrounds and to engage them actively in the learning process in an inclusive and non-
discriminatory manner.

Career Outcomes
The BComp-BTeach is suitable for students who wish to obtain a computing degree with the view to becoming a
teacher. Graduates will be qualified to teach in secondary schools in the computing discipline and the area of their
sub-major (i.e. mathematics or science).

Course Structure
To qualify for the Bachelor of Computing and Bachelor of Teaching, students must successfully complete 400%
from units in the BComp, BSc and BTeach schedules. 212.5% is required for the BComp component and 187.5% for
the BTeach component. The BComp component must include two teaching subject areas from information
technology, mathematics and science. Information technology is a compulsory teaching subject area for the BComp
component and comprises 137.5% of computing units. The second teaching area must be completed from

                            Bachelor of Engineering - N3A ( BE )
Campus(es) Offered: Hobart: Launceston:
Course Duration: Minimum 4 yrs, Maximum 8 yrs.
Course Contact (faculty or School): (03) 6226 2135
Introduction
This 4-year (minimum) full-time course is offered by the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology. The first
two years of the course may be studied in either Hobart or Launceston. The remainder of the course must be
completed in Hobart.
 Note: Students intending to study at Launceston should contact the School for advice prior to enrolling.

Admission & Prerequisites
If students are entering first year Engineering in either Hobart or Launceston, they must have met the University
admission requirements including a TCE Satisfactory Achievement (SA) result or higher in Mathematics Stage 2
*MT841 and Applied Science: Physical Science *SC786 or MME5C Mathematics Methods 5C and PSC5C Physical
Sciences 5C.
Although not essential for entry, students are encouraged to study additional TCE science subjects such as
Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics Specialised 5C, Physics, etc as they provide a useful background for
first-year BE units.
A TAFE advanced diploma in Civil, Mechanical or Electrical Engineering may be accepted as an alternative
prerequisite for admission to the Bachelor of Engineering course with advanced standing.
Interstate or overseas qualifications, which are deemed equivalent by the University, may also be accepted.

Objectives
The objectives of the Bachelor of Engineering degree are:

 *   to provide a sound basis in the physical sciences, mathematics and basic engineering science in the first two
     years of study, along with some degree of specialisation;
 *   to provide, in the final two years of study, specific theory and practice in one of the specialised engineering
     fields;
 *   to train students to a graduate level whereby they meet the academic requirements for admission to the
     Institution of Engineers, Australia and like institutions;
 *   to produce well-rounded graduates who can develop their professional and managerial skills in their places
     of employment; and
 *   to impart the generic attributes of a graduate engineer as specified by the Institution of Engineers, Australia.

The engineering degree is interesting and challenging, requiring motivation and commitment from the student. In
its final stages, students work and become familiar with the very latest developments in the various disciplines.

Career Outcomes
Engineers play a major role in improving living standards and the quality of life in our community. They have a
major role to play in the protection of the environment. Students are prepared for careers covering a broad range
of disciplines and skills in a world where there is an ever increasing demand for people in this profession.,
Engineers are well paid and get interesting positions in government, private companies, industry and consulting
firms. After starting in technical positions, Engineers often move into management roles within companies and
organisations.

Articulation From Course
In certain circumstances the Faculty may grant status in units of the BE degree course to students who have
completed equivalent work in other institutions. All such cases are treated on their merits.
Special admission conditions apply to the acceptance of some overseas students. Approved diplomates of certain
overseas polytechnics may be granted advanced standing of up to four semesters toward the four-year Bachelor of
Engineering degree.

University of Tasmania, Course Guide 2005 www.utas.edu.au/courses/                                             415
Articulation To Course
If students wish to specialise in other branches of Engineering (eg Aeronautical, Agricultural, Chemical,
Manufacturing, Maritime, Materials, Mining, Naval Architecture, Petroleum), it is generally possible for them to
start their studies at the University of Tasmania and later transfer to an institution offering the course. If this is the
student's intention, it is important that the students see the Degree Coordinator before starting their University
studies as it may be necessary to follow a specially prescribed course.

Professional Recognition
The Bachelor of Engineering is accredited by The Institution of Engineers Australia (IEAust) as providing
qualification for Graduate membership of the Institution. It is also recognised in a number of other countries such
as UK and USA through agreements between the IEAust and like professional bodies overseas.
The computer systems engineering specialisation is also accredited by the Australian Computer Society for
graduate entry.

Miscellaneous Information
Specimen courses
Specimen courses are outlined below. Students should note that their choice of units should conform with the
specimen courses, unless otherwise determined by the Degree Coordinator.

If students have previously attempted all or part of an examination they will not be permitted to count units with
overlapping content.

Policy on use of calculators in examinations
Engineers use calculators a great deal, and it is essential that each engineering student has a calculator.

Because of the advantage that advanced (and generally expensive) calculators might give in examinations, a
uniform policy on calculators for use in engineering examinations in the earlier years of the course has been
adopted. Only the following types of calculator will be permitted in first year engineering examinations: Hewlett-
Packard HP6S and 32S, Sharp EL-5120, EL-520 Series and EL-531 Series, Casio FX-82 Series and FX 100S Series and
FX-520 Series. Other calculators may be added to the list by the Head of School.

Students should note that this list includes some programmable, specialist scientific calculators as well as some
more basic types. They should consider their options carefully. Students taking units taught by the Australian
Maritime College in Launceston should note the particular calculator requirements of those units.

The list of permitted calculators will be kept as stable as possible, subject to the availability of the various models.

Course Structure
Students both in Hobart and Launceston take a common first three semesters. This gives a breadth of subjects
which enables students to select the area of engineering to which they are best suited and in which they wish to
specialise. Students choose their area of specialisation in semester 4.
The six broad areas of specialisation are:

 *    civil engineering
 *    mechanical engineering
 *    mechatronics
 *    electrical power engineering
 *    electronics and communication engineering
 *    computer systems engineering

The standard routes of progression through each of the four years to these specialisations are shown in the
following Chart.

University of Tasmania, Course Guide 2005 www.utas.edu.au/courses/                                                  416
A major feature of the engineering course is the emphasis placed on laboratory work; students will be required to
write regular reports on their work. The design classes provide them with opportunities to learn the techniques of
developing safe and reliable designs. In the fourth year, each student may undertake an individual project which
involves an analysis of requirements, feasibility study, and design and development usually resulting in a
prototype. For both the laboratory and the design classes, extensive use is made of computers.

Engineering students are also required to complete a prescribed amount of industrial experience work in the
vacations. Where possible, the work experience placements are arranged through the School of Engineering, and
students are paid by their employers at the appropriate award rate.

                  Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) - N4A ( BE(Hons) )
Campus(es) Offered: Hobart:
Course Duration: Minimum 4 yrs, Maximum 8 yrs.
Course Contact (faculty or School):
Introduction
A candidate who has completed the Third Examination of the Bachelor of Engineering with sufficient merit will be
invited by the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology on the recommendation of the School of
Engineering as a candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Engineering with Honours.



University of Tasmania, Course Guide 2005 www.utas.edu.au/courses/                                        428
Admission & Prerequisites
Acceptance for honours is based on the value of WAM3, a weighted average percentage mark computed from the
candidate's results in the Third Examination of the Bachelor of Engineering course (see Note 1below).

Objectives
The BE honours program exists to serve two purposes. Firstly, it enables outstanding academic performance by
students in the final two years of the degree course to be acknowledged. Secondly, and as part of this process, it
requires the student to perform and present a substantial piece of work by way of an investigative project, leading
to an oral presentation and a written thesis describing the work.

Career Outcomes
The honours program, in addition to the pathways applicable to the Bachelor of Engineering (N3A), provides
pathways to postgraduate research programs, academic careers and industrial research and development work.

Articulation From Course
Students may articulate from the Bachelor of Engineering (N3A) at the end of the third year to the Bachelor of
Engineering with Honours (N4A) in the fourth year.

Articulation To Course
Graduates of the honours program may undertake research higher degree programs: Master of Engineering
Science, Doctor of Philosophy.

Professional Recognition
Professional recognition of the honours program is the same as that for the Bachelor of Engineering (N3A). The
honours degree is fully accredited by the Institution of Engineers Australia.

Miscellaneous Information
Note 1
An Honours Index (HI) shall be computed from the candidate's results in the Third and Fourth Examinations for
the Bachelor of Engineering degree according to the formula:

HI = 0.08/3 x (WAM3 + 2xWAM4) + 0.02 x THESIS

WAM 3 = ? (Ms x Ws)/? Ws

for the units of the Third Examination of the Bachelor of Engineering, and

WAM 4 = ? (Ms x Ws)/? Ws

for the units of the Fourth Examination of the Bachelor of Engineering,

where Ms is the percentage mark awarded in each unit, s, and Ws is the weighting for that unit given in the
Handbook of the year of enrolment, and

0.08/3 is a constant related to the WAM weighting.

THESIS is the percentage mark awarded for the candidate's final year honours work, which may include oral
presentation, marks for progress reports and thesis report. A minimum of 60% in THESIS shall be required for the
award of honours.

Note 2
The School of Engineering will normally recommend to the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology the
award of first class honours to candidates with a HI of 7.5 or greater; second class (upper division) to candidates
with an HI of 7.0 to less than 7.5; and second class (lower division) to candidates with an HI in the range of 6.5 to

University of Tasmania, Course Guide 2005 www.utas.edu.au/courses/                                              429
less than 7.0. Candidates with an HI less than 6.5 would not normally be recommended for honours.

Course Structure
Students enrolled in honours must undertake an individual research and development project of a standard and
scope appropriate to the degree of Bachelor of Engineering with Honours.
The award of Honours is assessed on the basis of the student's academic record. Assessment of the examinations of
the Bachelor of Engineering degree are described in Notes 1 and 2. The class of honours awarded, which may be
either first class or second class (upper or lower division), is based on a candidate's overall weighted average mark
(WAM).

                   Bachelor of Environmental Design - D3A ( BEnvDes )
Campus(es) Offered: Launceston:
Course Duration: Minimum 3 yrs, Maximum 10 yrs.
Course Contact (faculty or School):
Introduction
This 3-year degree course is available, full time, on-campus by the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology
and is available at Launceston through the School of Architecture.

Admission & Prerequisites
The Faculty considers for admission students who have a broad academic background and a demonstrated interest
in, commitment to and aptitude for design.
Apart from the University's general admission requirements, there are no additional prerequisites for the BEnvDes
degree. HSC/TCE subjects preferably should not be restricted to a narrow discipline, but rather span two or more
areas (eg art and science).
A limited number of quota places is available to applicants who do not meet the normal University entry
requirements. Such applicants will be required to attend an interview and present a folio of creative work and/or
demonstrate skills and knowledge that suggest they could successfully undertake the course.

Objectives
The Bachelor of Environmental Design is seen primarily as a pre-professional course and thus aims to produce
graduates whose creative abilities are developed to a level of competence necessary to gain admission to the
Bachelor of Environmental Design with Honours, Bachelor of Architecture, and equivalent courses in the fields of
architecture, town planning and related design areas. Examples of other areas in which students have continued

Introduction
(Coordinator: Professor Craig Johnson (03) 6226 2582
This three-year (four years with Honours) full-time or six-year part-time course is offered by the Faculty of Science,
Engineering and Technology and is available at Hobart.

Admission & Prerequisites
Minimum university entrance requirements plus TCE pre-tertiary mathematics stage two or three (*MT841 or


University of Tasmania, Course Guide 2005 www.utas.edu.au/courses/                                             435
*MT843) or equivalent. For students who have not successfully completed the required mathematics, the
prerequisite will be met if the student successfully completes the mathematics bridging unit (KMA003) as part of
the Science Enabling Course.
Subject prerequisites apply within the degree.

Objectives
Fisheries Science is an interdisciplinary field with a strong focus on ecology, mathematics, computing and policy.
There is a strong need for fisheries scientists with an appreciation of the legal and policy framework in which
fisheries operates, and for fisheries managers and policy developers with an understanding of quantitative
fisheries science. No institution in Australia, and only a handful of institutions worldwide, offers comprehensive
undergraduate or postgraduate training in quantitative fisheries science, or the opportunity for interdisciplinary
studies to include mathematics, computing, biology, ecology, economics, policy and law.
This course specifically aims to provide students with competencies, skills, knowledge and awareness which will
prepare them for both employment as science providers in fisheries and other areas of natural resource
management, and research in higher degrees in the fisheries arena.
The program develops a wide range of general abilities including:

 *    communication skills;
 *    data manipulation skills;
 *    analytical and problem solving skills;
 *    information retrieval, manipulation and presentation skills; and
 *    the ability to work across traditional discipline areas.

Career Outcomes
The degree will provide openings for career opportunities in fisheries assessment and management in particular
and natural resource management in general. Opportunities include a range of career types within State and
Federal governments, and with international agencies. There is currently a strong need for trained personnel in
these areas. The BFishSc is the principal training program for entry into the newly-developed joint
CSIRO/University of Tasmania graduate training program in quantitative marine science.

Articulation From Course
Credit for relevant units will be given to transferring students.

Articulation To Course
The BFishSc will articulate into the Bachelor of Fisheries Science with Honours from 2008.

Course Structure
To qualify for the Bachelor of Fisheries Science, students must successfully complete units as specified below with
a total weighting of 300%. The course allows for two streams' reflecting different emphases of specialisation in the
optional units in the third year of the course. These two specialisations are in computer modeling (including GIS)
and resource economics, and in policy and law.
The first 100% (i.e. the first year) must be made up of the core compulsory units in Schedule A (87.5%) and 12.5%
of elective units in Schedule B.
The second 100% (i.e. the second year) must be made up of 100% of core compulsory units in Schedule C.
The third 100% (i.e. the third year) must be made up of 62.5% of core compulsory units in Schedule D and 37.5% of
elective units in Schedule E.
Not more than 37.5% of terminating passes may be counted towards the degree.

Course Duration: Minimum 3 yrs, Maximum 9 yrs.
Course Contact (faculty or School): (03) 6226 2125
Introduction
Course coordinator: Dr N Davidson.

The Bachelor of Forest Science is a three-year full-time or eight-year part-time professionally accredited degree
offered jointly by the University of Tasmania and the University of Melbourne. Students will enrol at the
University of Tasmania for the first two years and then move to the University of Melbourne's dedicated forestry
campus at Creswick (90 minutes north-west of Melbourne) to study forest science and forestry subjects in parallel
with University of Melbourne Bachelor of Forest Science students. Subject to academic performance, students have
the option of completing an Honours year at either the University of Tasmania or the University of Melbourne,
with the expectation that students would return to Tasmania to complete Honours.

Admission & Prerequisites
Satisfaction of the University_s minimum entry requirements for degree courses plus TCE pre-tertiary chemistry
(*CH856) and mathematics (*MT730 or *MT841) or equivalent. For students who have not successfully completed
the above chemistry or mathematics subjects, the prerequisite will be met if the student successfully completes the
appropriate bridging unit (KMA003 Mathematics Bridging Unit or KRA001 Chemistry Bridging Unit) as part of
the Science Enabling Course.

Objectives
The joint program is designed to give students a broad understanding of every aspect of forestry and forest
industries from soils and tree physiology to commercial forest management and conservation. This involves

University of Tasmania, Course Guide 2005 www.utas.edu.au/courses/                                            438
studying basic science subjects and also involvement in numerous field and laboratory studies. Students gain
expertise in matters such as the sustainable management of timber, water and other forest products, recreation,
farm forestry, forest biotechnology and the conservation of flora and fauna.

The course also includes at least one two-week field camp and twelve weeks of compulsory practical forestry work
(during vacations), which offers more understanding of life in the field and an awareness of issues unique to the
industry.

Career Outcomes
Graduates will be well suited to a wide range of occupations, in particular relating to the management of forest
resources and the environment. Most forest estates cover several hundred thousand hectares and the management
of such large-scale enterprises draws continually on training in forest biology (including ecology, genetics and
physiology), hydrology, engineering, remote sensing and economics. Graduates will be employed by government
authorities, principally with the State forest services but also with land care, national parks, wildlife, water supply
and country fire authorities as well as environmental management and planning agencies. There are also
opportunities for employment in private forestry, mainly with the pulp and paper companies, and in the larger
firms in the wood-based industry, especially in resource planning, timber and harvesting.

Articulation From Course
Credit for relevant units will be given to transferring students.

Professional Recognition
The program is a professional degree accredited by the Institute of Foresters of Australia. Graduates are eligible to
become members of the Institute.

                        Bachelor of Geomatics - N3H ( BGeomatics )
Campus(es) Offered: Hobart: Launceston: First year only. Subject to enrolment numbers.
Course Duration: Minimum 4 yrs, Maximum 8 yrs.
Course Contact (faculty or School): (03) 6226 2463
Introduction
This 4-year (minimum) full-time or part-time course is offered by the Faculty of Science, Engineering and
Technology. The degree is available at Hobart and, subject to demand, the first year may also be offered at
Launceston. Honours requires one year of additional study.

Admission & Prerequisites
In addition to satisfying the normal University admission requirements, students entering first year Geomatics
must have obtained a TCE Satisfactory Achievement (SA) result or higher in both Mathematics Methods 5C
(*MME5C) and Physical Sciences 5C (*PSC5C)
If applicants do not have these prerequisites they should discuss their qualifications with the degree coordinator.
Appropriate University bridging courses may be available.
Interstate or overseas qualifications which are deemed equivalent by the University may also be accepted, subject
to approval by the degree coordinator.

Objectives
Geomatics is a term that describes a number of closely related disciplines. These include surveying, spatial and
geographic information systems, photogrammetry, remote sensing, geodesy and cartography. The name
Geomatics, derived from the French term 'science geomatique', has been adopted internationally to describe the
scope of the spatial information sciences.
In recent years, there has been a dramatic growth in the surveying and spatial information sciences. Tools such as
Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), remote sensing, image processing, and
digital photogrammetry have impacted dramatically, with GIS and GPS becoming ubiquitous. For graduates
choosing a career in land surveying, these technologies will be as important as traditional surveying instruments.
For other students, an understanding of these new technologies presents a wide range of career opportunities
within the geomatics disciplines.
The aim of the Bachelor of Geomatics is to prepare students for employment in vocations requiring a knowledge of
the geomatic sciences. These include:

 *     land surveying -- measuring and defining land ownership boundaries; spatial control for projects such as
     roads and bridges;
 *     spatial and geographic information systems -- computer management, mapping and analysis of spatial
     information;
 *     photogrammetry and remote sensing -- measurement, mapping and data analysis from aircraft and
     satellite sensors;
 *     geodesy and geodetic surveying -- science of the measurement and mapping of the earth's surface using
     satellite and terrestrial data;
 *     hydrographic surveying -- measuring and mapping in a marine environment.

To achieve this aim, the course imparts to students:

 *   an understanding of the scientific principles underlying the geomatic sciences;
 *   a knowledge of the way in which these principles are implemented in current surveying and mapping
     technology;
 *   appropriate scientific analysis, problem solving and design skills;
 *   appropriate communication skills;
 *   a general knowledge of associated disciplines that will facilitate communication and professional interaction;
     and
 *   an appreciation of the professional standards and practices of relevant professional institutions.

University of Tasmania, Course Guide 2005 www.utas.edu.au/courses/                                            441
Career Outcomes
Graduates find employment in a wide range of areas including spatial data management, land administration,
surveying and mapping, cadastral and engineering surveying, GIS industries, and geodetic agencies.
The spatial information industry is experiencing strong growth, with high graduate employment rates expected to
continue.

Articulation From Course
Students may be granted credit if they have completed equivalent work in other institutions. For example,
students who have successfully completed the TAFE Advanced Diploma in Spatial Information Services will be
granted credit for 25% of the course requirements, including the units Geomatics 1 and Applied Physics.
If students have 12 months or more of appropriate work experience they may also be granted credit for the
Professional Experience component of the course.

Professional Recognition
The Bachelor of Geomatics is recognised by the Institution of Surveyors, Australia as providing qualification for
graduate membership of the Institution. Corporate membership is granted after an approved period of
professional experience.
For registration as a Land Surveyor in Tasmania, graduates of the Land Surveying stream must complete a period
of supervised professional experience and pass the registration authority's examinations. The fourth year of the
course counts towards the professional experience requirements.
Graduates of the Spatial Information Systems stream who wish to proceed towards registration must complete
coursework units from the fourth year of the Land Surveying stream.
Further information is available from the degree coordinator.

Miscellaneous Information
Note
Candidates for the degree shall pass all of the units prescribed for either the Land Surveying stream or the Spatial
Information Systems stream. However, the Associate Dean may, with the approval of the relevant Head of School,
in a special case, allow a candidate to substitute another unit for a unit which has been prescribed.

Course Structure
The Bachelor of Geomatics may be undertaken in either of two specialisations: Land Surveying or Spatial
Information Systems. Each of these consists of four years of academic study, including a minimum of 20 weeks of
professional experience in the final year. Students do not need to choose their specialisation until the final year.

Four-year Honours programs / Schedule C1. Forest Ecology
 Major code: KFE
 In the first 3 years students need to pass course units to a total of 300 percent. This is achieved by a mix
of compulsory and optional units to a value of 100 percent in each year. The course coordinator will assist
with the planning of the student's course. A special unit (Plant Science Research KPA378) will be
offered to Forest Ecology students in third year. This will involve a series of lectures presented by
specialist foresters and a research project in one of the disciplines outlined. Tutorials will be held for all
Forest Ecology students near the middle of semesters 1 and 2 (students will be notified of timing). These
will provide an opportunity for students to discuss the course and new developments in Forestry in
Australia.

Students who have completed the first three years of the specimen course in Forest Ecology will
be permitted to enrol in Honours in Forest Ecology provided they have achieved an adequate
standard, normally at least 50% in third year units, and a suitable project and supervisor are
available.
The fourth year of the course, the 'Honours year', includes the following main components:
1. A research project of 9 months duration. This would normally be carried out in the School of
Plant Science but after consultation with the course coordinator may be carried out in other
schools such as Zoology, Agricultural Science, Geography and Environmental Studies or
Mathematics and Physics. Where appropriate, scientists from outside the University may act as
co-supervisors, especially if the project necessitates work being undertaken in laboratories of
other institutions.
2. A reading thesis based on a literature-based review or other coursework as appropriate.
3. Attendance at seminars given by research scientists working in the field (Plant Science and
CRC seminars).

Objectives
The BSc-BTeach aims to qualify students for employment as secondary teachers in two of the following subject
specialisatons: science, mathematics or information technology.
The science component of the BSc-BTeach aims to:

 *   provide students with opportunities to acquire knowledge, attitudes and skills in a range of basic physical,
     computational, mathematical and life sciences;
 *   introduce students to scientific method through a range of disciplines;
 *   provide graduates with advanced knowledge in one science discipline; and
 *   meet the needs of industry, business and government agencies.


University of Tasmania, Course Guide 2005 www.utas.edu.au/courses/                                            502
     The BTeach component prepares beginning teachers in all the appropriate major areas of professional
     competence. These competencies include an understanding of, and ability to practice teaching as an active,
     interactive process involving the mutual construction of ideas, understandings, sensibilities and skills rather
     than the mere transmission of information; an understanding of the content, conceptual ordering and
     methods of inquiry of relevant subject areas; of how students learn and develop with individual differences;
     of the relationship between content knowledge and the process of teaching and the ability to plan and
     manage the teaching and learning process in an effective, inclusive and engaging manner; of alternative
     teaching practices in particular contexts with particular kinds of content; and of students, their development,
     the contexts that they live and learn in, including how teaching and learning outcomes are embedded in, and
     structured by, a variety of broad cultural and social processes. The program enables beginning teachers to
     communicate, interact and work with students of diverse abilities, interests and backgrounds and to engage
     them actively in the learning process in an inclusive and non-discriminatory manner.

Career Outcomes
The BSc-BTeach is suitable for students who wish to obtain a science degree with the view to becoming a teacher.
Graduates will be qualified to teach in secondary schools in the disciplines of their major and sub-major. Teaching
majors and sub-majors must be selected from mathematics, information technology and science subject areas.

Course Structure
To qualify for the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Teaching, students must successfully complete 400% from
units in the BSc and BTeach schedules. 212.5% is required for the BSc component and 187.5% for the BTeach
component. A list of BSc units available is shown under Schedule A of the BSc.
The BSc component must include two teaching subject areas from information technology, mathematics and
science. One of the two subject areas must be a major and the other a sub-major. A major is defined as a 25% first
year core, a 25% second year core and 50% at the third year level. A sub-major is defined as a 25% first year core
and a 25% second year core. The majors and sub-majors available for the science teaching subject area are
chemistry, physics and the life sciences (microbiology/immunology, plant science and zoology) and are defined
according to Schedule B of the BSc. Not more than 25% of terminating passes may be counted towards the BSc
component.
The BTeach component comprises 187.5% of compulsory units detailed in the list following the course structure
table.

diploma students articulating from TAFE Colleges. It is not generally intended that entry be from Year 12. The
Bachelor of Technology programs are in Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. While the programs do use
many of the units within the School's Bachelor of Engineering programs, they are focused on design aspect of the
relative engineering discipline and involve specialist units. The School should be contacted regarding details of the
course schedules.

Admission & Prerequisites
Applicants would normally hold a TAFE diploma or associate diploma in Civil, Mechanical or Electrical
Engineering. The course structure is based on the student's holding a Tasmanian TAFE Associate Diploma.
Prospective students holding the new Tasmanian TAFE Diploma or other TAFE qualification should contact the
School of Engineering for details.

Objectives
The Bachelor of Technology leads to a para-professional qualification designed to satisfy the requirements of the
Institution of Engineers Australia for affiliate membership.
Course objectives are:

 *    to provide a sound basis in mathematics, the basic sciences and engineering sciences and management;
 *    to produce engineering technologists who will work in collaboration with more experienced engineering
      technologists, or assist professional engineers to undertake tasks which require accuracy and adherence to
      prescribed methods of analysis, design or computation;
 *    to develop skills in analysis, synthesis, design and communication; and
 *    to promote student interaction and activities which develop the key interpersonal skills required to balance
      academic achievements.

Articulation From Course
Articulation from a TAFE diploma is a specific design feature of the course, and holders of this award may be
granted up to approximately three semesters advanced standing in the course.

University of Tasmania, Course Guide 2005 www.utas.edu.au/courses/                                            505
Articulation To Course
After successful completion of the Bachelor of Technology, students may also elect to continue their study and
articulate to the Bachelor of Engineering in the appropriate specialisation, to become professional engineers.

Course Structure
Entry is normally at advanced standing through a diploma and requires the equivalent of a further 1.5 years
approximately of University study. This may be done full-time or on a part-time basis, in conjunction with suitable
employment. Students contemplating a course of part-time study should contact the School of Engineering to
ensure their proposed course is acceptable within the framework of proposed course changes.
To qualify for the degree, candidates must also undertake a prescribed period of industrial experience and obtain a
first-aid certificate.
