Why study this programme?

Innovative teaching and learning methods and virtualization of the study process are applied. Lectures, seminars, discussions, group work, practical tasks, literature analysis, project preparation, etc. Student-oriented student’s independent work, based on tasks, group work, in which problematic and critical thinking are very important, project work.

Study environment

Measurements are carried out using modern geodetic instruments, GPNS equipment using stationary 3D scanners and unmanned aerial vehicles (drones). 3D surface models are developed using 3D technology with collected data from LIDAR and with other methods measured areas. Cadastral measurements of buildings and land plots are being carried out, topographic and engineering digital geodetic plans are being prepared.

Career

Possibilities to make a career in institutions for digital geodesy measuring, companies for real estate cadastre data processing and evaluation, construction organizations, municipalities or other institutions for spatial data processing, storage and geomatics (GIS) departments and centers, to create private companies.

Goal of the program

The aim of Professional Bachelor study of Digital Geodesy programme is to prepare highly qualified geodesy specialist. They will be able to use of modern geodetic devices, GPNS equipment, stationary 3D scanners and drones with equipment of remote sensing technology. Specialists will be able to use 3D geoinformation (GIS) technology to create 3D surface models with LIDAR; they will be able to use other methods of measured area data, performing cadastral measurements of structures and land plots, preparing topographic and geodetic plans for underground engineering networks.
