If you live in Australia could you tell me whether this kind of branches (related with geographical/environmental problem solutions) are popular there? I'm already aware that Computer Science is pretty popular there.
Stands for Science.Technology.Engineerring.Mathematics
The branch itself includes a lot of geodesy which in terms is all about physics (yay I love physics) and math. Then of course there's science with studying the Earth's structure and spatial data. Technology involving lots of fancy gadgets and stuff to collect information, plus lots of IT. In the end everything is going to be applied in real life situation so yeah, engineering.
