Engineering Degree Program in China - Surveying and Mapping Engineering

1. Introduction

Surveying and Mapping Engineering trains engineering and technical personnel who have knowledge of geodesy, marine surveying, spatial measurement, photogrammetry and remote sensing, map compilation, and can be engaged in measurement engineering, design, implementation and research of map and geographic information system such as construction of national basic surveying and mapping, navigation and management of land, sea, and air vehicles, city or engineering construction, exploration and development of mineral resources, investigation and management of Land resources in different national economic departments. 

2. Training Requirement

Students mainly study the basic theory, basic knowledge and basic skills of surveying and mapping, the theory of spatial precision positioning and navigation, the basic knowledge of urban and engineering construction and the design, implementation and management of its measurement engineering, theory and technology of photogrammetry and image information processing, theory and technology of map design and compilation. Students should get basic training of scientific research, and have basic ability in surveying and mapping engineering.
