Why studying at the Faculty of Geodesy, University in Zagreb?

If you wish to learn which quantities geodesists measure in order to determine the size and the shape of the Earth and its parts, how to determine distances and heights, how to create maps, how to locate traffic routes, tunnels, bridges and other objects in space precisely, how GPS (Global Positioning System) operates and what it is used for, and how cadastre and land registry are established, you should first get yourself admitted at the Bachelor study programme of geodesy and geoinformatics.

Bachelor study programme lasts three years , Master study programme lasts two years, postgraduate doctoral study programme lasts three years, and specialist postgraduate programme lasts one year.

The Faculty of Geodesy is a high education institution dealing with the research area of technical sciences , the discipline of geodesy . There are Bachelor , Master, postgraduate doctoral and specialist postgraduate study programmes of geodesy and geoinformatics organised at the Faculty of Geodesy.

After completing the Bachelor study programme, students earn 180 ECTS points, and acquire the vocational degree of Bachelor (baccalaureus) of Engineering in Geodesy and Geoinformatics ( univ. bacc. ing. geod. et geoinf. ).

The programme aims to educate the candidates in order to be able to participate in the procedures of registering land and interests on it, to produce and maintain topographic, cartographic and land geoinformation systems, to measure the quantities necessary in defining the size, position, features, outlines and changes of any part of the Earth and land, and to solve practical tasks in geodetic surveying.

The study programme of geodesy and geoinformatics belongs to technical studies and as such requires preferences and good knowledge of mathematics, physics and information science. There is a great demand for qualified engineers of technical professions both in Croatia and abroad, and it applies especially to geodesists and geoinformation scientists. Field work is an integral part of geodetic jobs, hence, this study programme is an excellent choice for all those who wish to perform their job also outside of their offices, in fresh air, always on the go, but with great responsibility. Everything located in space has been placed there or its position determined by surveyors. Geodesy, and especially Geonformatics are interdisciplinary professions, therefore, the possibilities to collaborate with other professions are very large.

What after graduating from the Bachelor study programme?

After graduating from the Bachelor study programme, the majority of Bachelors continues their studies at the Master study programme of Geodesy and Geinformatics. Smaller percentage of Bachelors get job in profession, and another small percentage of Bachelors decide to continue studying at some other Master study programme, mostly in the research area of technical, biotehcnial or natural sciences.
