Geomatics engineering requires a combination of design, computer, and measurement skills with field work and computer modelling and analysis to solve a variety of problems that involve spatial location. It leads to careers having a great outdoor/indoor balance through modern techniques to obtain process, integrate, analyze, and manage the spatial relative knowledge/information. In early twenty century, United States department of labor had claimed that the three most emerging growing industries will be Biotechnology, Geospatial Technology and Nanotechnology. It states the importance of Geomatics in varies directions.
In order to match and follow this new trend of geospatial technology as well as national infrastructure development, Geomatics department aims at educating students to have independent problem solving, innovative thinking and integration abilities, there are three developed directions including:
- Teaching direction:
- Renewing and adding newest equipment and facilities for research and teaching.
- Widely recruit faculty from different research area.
- Continuously improving the content of teaching materials in order to follow the newest technology.
- Promoting more relative professional programs in order to educate cross-areas experts
- Increasing more and more courses that are taught in English.
- Research direction:
- Improving the research ability and promote the level or research project.
- Increasing the number of the academic-industry cooperation projects in order to enhance the students’ ability in integrating innovative research and practical applications
- Contributing to the sociality by developing new techniques for industry.
- International connection direction:
- Inviting international scholars regularly to give speech and exchange knowledge.
- Hosting international conference for encouraging students and faculties to participate in international activities.
