Geodesy and Geoinformatics (studies in English)

The free of charge master's degree study (3 semesters) in the area of Geodesy and Geoinformatics provides the candidate with extensive knowledge and skills in the field 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 area 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). The course also includes vocational 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, Geovisualization, WEB and mobile GIS, Geostatistics. The costs of participation in the organized Summer School are covered by its organizers (including accommodation, meals, travel and sightseeing). Summer School courses prepare the graduate to perform highly specialized services in the area of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Bathymetric Measurements, GPR measurements, GIS project and Cloud GIS. Every student is required to submit a master’s degree thesis, which can be written in Polish or English. The curriculum includes facultative courses providing students with the freedom of planning their educational program. Studies in the area of Geodesy and Geoinformatics prepare the graduate for employment in surveying, cartographic and geoinformatic surveying companies, research institutions and development centers, and in central and local administration units.

Students from abroad can apply for a reimbursement of accommodation and food costs up to 1500 PLN per month.
