Doctoral Degree in Surveying Engineering

The PhD program in Surveying Engineering aims to provide high level education in the field of Surveying Engineering. The program is constituted by an original thesis, corresponding to 180 ECTS, with a normal duration of three years of full time study.

During the course the students should acquire a solid and advanced knowledge in the field of surveying Engineering, the required skills to perform autonomous and advanced research on a topic of scientific and technological relevance. The work developed during the course shall allow the publication of scientific papers in international journals, the development of new applications, new systems for the acquisition or processing of geographical information and contribute to the improvement of the scientific and technological development.

Students should have a master degree or equivalent in Surveying Engineering, (Geomatics) or related fields (e.g., other Engineering fields, Mathematics, Physics, Informatics, etc.)

Being Surveying Engineering an increasing inter-disciplinary field, the topic of research can be on the various sub-domains of Surveying Engineering, with particular emphasis on:

  • Remote Sensing
  • Satellite Altimetry
  • Photogrammetry
  • Geographic Information Systems
  • Satellite Positioning and Navigation
  • Integration and development of airborne and unmanned systems


Admission Requirements

To apply to the PhD Program in Surveying Engineering, one of the following conditions must be satisfied:

  • To have a Master’ degree or the legal equivalent;
  • To have a first degree and a relevant academic and scientific curriculum, recognized by the Scientific Board as sufficient guarantee of ability to successfully complete the course;
  • To have a relevant academic , scientific or professional curriculum recognized by the Scientific Board as sufficient guarantee of ability to successfully complete the course

n addition, the candidates must have a good knowledge (both spoken and written) of the English language.

Application Procedure

Acceptance to the PhD program is decided by the Scientific Board of the course, considering the curriculum vitae, t he proposed work plan and the supporting letter from the supervisor and co-supervisor (if available).

Application and Enrolment

Applications are received continuously all over the year.
