The School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Management was disestablished on 1 January, 2017.

Following a review, the school was merged with the School of Earth Sciences to create the new School of Earth and Environmental Sciences.

Angela Marsh got involved early with the opportunities on offer in her Bachelor of Environmental Management and believes it has been essential to her success in the workplace.

“The variety of subjects I was able to choose from were fantastic - from doing a week long outback ecology fieldtrip in central QLD, to learning about cleaner production techniques in industry. It was all relevant and allowed me to see how environmental management can be used in so many different fields” Angela said.

 During her second year of study at The University of Queensland (UQ), Angela began work with the Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) which provided a great starting point for her career.
 
Angela’s current role with CNC is varied and finds her working with spatial data, managing data collection in the field, training non-GIS staff in data capture and providing mapping for various clients.
 
Throughout her degree, Angela always felt encouraged and impressed by the facilities provided at UQ.
 
“I would have to say one of the most beneficial aspects of my program was the faculty. I really liked my lecturers. They were all so knowledgeable, had real-world experience and made it interesting to learn.”
 
Angela remembers her time at UQ fondly and credits it as not only setting the grounds for her career, but also creating life-long friendships that were developed through long hours in the computer labs and sneaky breaks at UQ’s favourite food haunts, “Wordies” and the Red Room.
 
Angela encourages any prospective students to emmerse themselves in the UQ community.
 
“Do it. The campus, facilities and faculty are world class, and the knowledge you have at the end of your degree will serve you well professionally. Studying at UQ was one of the best times of my life.”
 
Angela’s determination has definitely paid off. Her future looks bright and she hopes to continually challenge herself and progress further professionally. We may even see Angela back through the doors of UQ as she considers doing a Masters of Geographic Information Science.
