Qualification requirements and regulations, including graduation requirements: The full implementation of the educational program and protection master's qualification work.
Characteristics of the educational program: Educational and professional training program is based on the known positions and results of modern scientific research in engineering geodesy, cartography, land and realty rating, GIS, photogrammetry and remote sensing, satellite geodesy, and oriented to the future professional and scientific carrier. Program objective is to provide theoretical knowledge and practical skills, sufficient to successfully perform their professional duties specialty 193 Geodesy and Land management on specialization of Space geodesy and prepare students for future employment in the chosen specialty. Provide the knowledge for the professional activities with the possible continuation of the study to get higher level of the qualification skill. Training process is organized in the form of lectures, laboratory and practical training, coursework, research work, self-work and implementation of master's thesis. Modern laboratories will be used for the proper formation of the educational process at the departments of the Institute of Geodesy. An obligatory practice should be done in the frame of master’s degree qualification project, according to the specialization, and all students should complete both: practical and theoretical research. The total amount of educational and professional program - 90 ECTS credits, including general training cycle: - 6 cr., cycle of professional training - 84 cr.
