The surveying and mining industries have undergone significant changes over the past thirty years. This paper looks briefly at the history of mine surveying from a practicing perspective. The changes in technology and practice will be examined with respect to the new skills and educational requirements that are now demanded. The skills and educational requirements to take mine surveying education into the 2 1st century are examined. In particular, the current course offerings at the University of Southern Queensland are discussed and provided as an example of a suitable educational model for mine surveying education in the future.
