Geographic Engineering prepares students for the study, measure and representation of the Earth whether with traditional mapping methods or by way of digital geographical information. It examines the techniques for observing and measuring the Earth with the aim of acquiring positional and qualitative information about the globe’s surface. It utilises methods both earthbound and spatial for data gathering, especially satellites observing the Earth for positioning and navigation. The field currently serves as support for numerous other disciplines, namely environmental studies and planning.
This degree imparts academic training and practice required for understanding issues of the gathering and treatment a wide range of geographic data, including: the production of topographic maps, the implementation and supervision of geodetic positioning investigation, the treatment of images from satellites and aerial photography; and the implementation and management of geographic information systems. The training seeks to provide extensive knowledge of the various disciplines of Geographic Engineering and a critical sense enabling its future engineers the ability to autonomously decide and conduct work in this area, rather than being mere users of the technology.
For those candidates who do not yet hold a degree and/or have an academic, scientific or professional curriculum recognized by the Scientific Committee of the MSc Programme as sufficient to prove capacity to carry out this study program, the grade is taken as the creditweighted average of grades in courses taken.
