Geodesy and Geoinformatics
The master's degree study (3 semesters) in the field of Geodesy and Geoinformatics provides the candidate with extensive knowledge and skills in the area of geodesy and cartography, with special emphasis on the latest technologies for gathering and processing data acquired with the use of remote sensing methods. The offered courses enable the candidate to gradually develop his/her skills in the field of geodesy and geoinformatics. The curriculum includes general and introductory courses offering both theoretical knowledge and practical instruction. The curriculum includes general and introductory courses (Mathematics, Physical Geodesy, Geostatistics, Earth observations, GIS programming), specialist courses modeling the future surveyor’s profile (Advanced geodesy, GNSS surveying, Advanced Satellite Remote Sensing, GNSS data processing and GNSS applications, Satellite navigation, Bathymetric measurements). Course includes also occupational training preparing the graduate to perform specialist services in the area of acquiring data for spatial information systems: Information technology in geomatics, GIS modeling and analysis, Database design, Geovizualization, WEB and mobile GIS. Every student is required to submit a master’s degree thesis. The curriculum includes facultative courses providing students with individual planning of their educational program. Studies in the field of Geodesy and Geoinformatics prepare the graduate for employment in surveying, cartographic and geoinformatics surveying companies, research institutions and development centers, and in central and local administration units.
The graduate has acquired rudimentary knowledge of mathematics, natural sciences and technical sciences, as well as specialist knowledge in geodesy and geoinformatics. The graduate has acquired basic competencies in the area of: contemporary methods for surveying, remote sensing and modeling the Earth's shape and physical properties, observing changes therein over time, numerical processing and presenting the results of surveying, satellite, remote sensing and photogrammetric measurements, conducting hydrographic surveys, GPR measurements and UAV missions, performing spatial analyses with the use of GIS tools, acquiring data for spatial information systems, developing GIS project and Cloud GIS, elaboration of topographic and thematic maps, surveying services for investment projects. The graduate has the required skills to use the acquired knowledge in work and daily life, manage teams performing contracted tasks, incorporating and managing small companies, apply legal knowledge to the extent required for conducting professional and business activity. The graduate is prepared to: provide engineering services in the area of surveying, cartography and geoinformatics, applied advanced surveying, satellite, photogrammetric and remote sensing measuring techniques, process and deploy measurement results.
Studies in the area of Geodesy and Geoinformatics prepare the graduate for employment in surveying, cartographic and geoinformatics surveying companies, small enterprises, research institutions, development centers, also in central and local administration units.
