Definition and objectives
Construction projects (in designing and construction phases), geoscience studies and in general geospatial referenced information analysis and display needs accurate qualitative, quantitative, and updated data which are usually represented in the form of analogue or digital maps. Surveying engineering in harmony with the other engineering fields, more specifically civil engineering, responds to this demands. Therefore, the main purpose of surveying and geomatics undergraduate program is to train experts with qualified knowledge and skills in various fields of surveying.
Necessity and significance
In addition to large-scale projects like geodesy and producing national base maps, cadastral survey and important remote sensing works which have essential and strategic importance, generally every construction project in different phases of designing/planning, construction and post construction needs maps and surveyors. Road and building construction projects as well as urban designing, mining, agriculture and irrigation, boundary and military matters, marine activities and seaport construction, land management, environment and natural resources protection, urban and rural planning are the examples of construction and development projects which are closely related to surveying engineering. Current existing statistics and the high rate of employment of graduate surveying engineers by ministries, governmental, and non-governmental organizations show the great significance and necessity of the field.
The program duration takes minimum of 7 semesters and the maximum duration is determined by the laws of the Iran's Science, Research and Technology ministry.
