Undergraduate Degrees

Aim of the BSc Programme 

To provide a comprehensive and detailed knowledge of the theory and methods of land surveying and the management of land information, in order to preprare and enable graduates to work effectively in response to regional, national and intentional needs.

Learning Outcomes

The intended learning outcomes are that graduates with a first degree in Geomatics will be able to:
• Explain the principles, theories, tools, and techniques of surveying and land information;
• Appropriately apply specialised knowledge in land surveying and land information management and other transferable skills appropriate to a wide range of disciplines;
• Use the skills required to work independently and as a member of a team;
• Critically examine land surveying and land information management problems and develop solutions within the context of given specifications and standards;
• Confidently develop and effectively communicate professional opinions on topical issues;
• Establish a sound basis for lifelong, self-motivated academic and professional studies.
