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.
