Abstract

The following discussion is concerned only with the 4 year program and does not consider the NSW/ACT TAFE system graduates, nor the graduates from the USQ Associate Degree in Spatial Science (2 year program) and Bachelor Spatial Science Technology (3 year program) whereby competencies will be diluted in accordance to the length of the program. It also does not address core competencies that may be achieved through graduates of post-graduate programs (Masters/Graduate diplomas/Graduate certificates) such as the USQ Spatial Science Technology suite of post-graduate programs by distance. The four year program represents the program most likely to be accredited by the Board and hence concentration on the four year programs.
