Geoinformation is an area of technology for measuring, managing, presentation and analising the geospatial data relating the earth. Geospatial data are obtained from various sources including observation of satellites orbiting the earth, sensors that are in the air, sea and terrestrial instruments. These data are processed and manipulated using computer and latest softwares. Also included in the area of geospatial are the computer mapping, remote sensing for monitoring the environment and positioning as well as precise navigation using Global Positioning System (GPS).

 

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (GEOINFORMATICS)

 

PROGRAMME OUTLINE

Geoinformatics is the art and science of gathering, processing, manipulating, managing, disseminating and applying geospatial data. The B.Sc. (Geoinformatics) programme is intended to produce professionals who are capable of using information technology (IT) to handle geospatial information for the economic, social and physical development of the country. Since its inception, as many as 556 graduates had successfully completed this programme.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

The objective of this programme is to produce graduates who are:
i) able to apply their knowledge and skills in the planning, analysis, design and supervision of works related to the geoinformatics discipline
ii) technically competent in solving problems logically, analytically and creatively based on sound facts and ideas
iii) capable of possessing a good leadership quality, ethical and professionally contribute towards the development of the nation
iv) able to work collectively in societies of diverse backgrounds to achieve common goals
v) able to communicate effectively across a range of contexts and audiences
vi) able to manage geoinformatics issues for the development and betterment of the nation and mankind
vii) willing to embark on business and provide job opportunities
viii) aware of the current local and global issues

BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING (GEOMATIC )

PROGRAMME OUTLINE

Geomatic Engineering is an area of technology for measuring, managing, presentation and analising the geospatial data relating the earth. Geospatial data are obtained from various sources including observation of satellites orbiting the earth, sensors that are in the air, sea and terrestrial instruments. These data are processed and manipulated using computer and latest softwares. Also included in the area of geospatial are the computer mapping, remote sensing for monitoring the environment and positioning as well as precise navigation using Global Positioning System (GPS).

Bachelor of Engineering (Geomatic) programme in the Department of Geoinformation, Faculty of Geoinformation and Real Estate, Universiti Technologi Malaysia is one of the oldest programme in Malaysia. Before 1994 the programme is known as Bachelor of Surveying (Land). This programme obtained full accreditation from the Board of Land Surveyor for Peninsular Malaysia and also from the Public Services Department of Malaysia.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

To produce graduates that have:
i) In-depth knowledge in geomatic engineering, competent and skillful in managing geomatic engineering projects.
ii) Ability to use techniques, skills and modern geomatic engineering tools to solve geomatic engineering and related problems creatively.
iii) Ability to analyze, maintain, update and synthesis geo-spatial data for speci c purposes and in compliance with the relevant laws.
iv) Innovative attitude and initiatives towards creating an effective and ef cient geomatic profession.
