The Faculty educates students in the full-time, two-steps course, that is: BSc Eng course (seven semesters) and MSc Eng course (3 semesters) - for Geodesy and Cartography discipline,
The faculty educates also students in the extramural BSc Eng course (9 semesters) and MSc Eng complementary course (4 semesters). The education of students is adapted to the current needs of the labour market.

The disciplines and specializations:
Geodesy and Cartography (full-time and extramural courses):
  • Engineering and Industrial Surveying
  • Real estate taxation and cadastre
  • Geoinformatics and Remote Sensing Informatics
  • Mining Surveying
Environmental Engineering (full-time course old system, 5 year study):
  • Environmental Protection in Industry
  • Environmental Protection in Planning and Management
Environmental Engineering (master 1.5 year studies)
  • Enviroment Mangement Systems,
  • Polution Integrated Controling Systems,
  • Environment Information Systems,
  • Degraded Area Management.

Graduate's profile:
A graduate of Geodesy and Cartography is prepared to manage complex works in geodesy and cartography and in real estate management, and also to undertake creative activities in these fields. His education is based upon exact sciences (mathematics, physics) and practical knowledge of computer science. Specific features of such a graduate cover:

  • an ability of planning and performing measurements and observations by means of specialist measurement instrumentation and modern techniques and methods;
  • an ability of evaluation, analysis and processing of the results of observations, making use of appropriate computations, mathematical statistics and computer equip-ment;
  • an ability of clear presentation of results of observations and analyses in a synthetic way, especially, in the form of maps, drawings, plans, diagrams and spatial models

A graduate of Mining Surveing is prepared to cope with the whole surveying problems occurring in underground and open pit mines, i.a. designing, investment performance, operation and liquidation of production. He is prepared to cooperate with graduates specializing in geology and mining. In addition, his skills and qualifications allow him to manage the generally conceived protection of mining areas, especially to protect the natural environment of mining zones from mining and industrial damages, by using modern tools and methods.
Graduates from Mining Surveing are employed in mining geology and prospecting and in institutions dealing with protection and management of the natural environment.They are also employed in typical surveying agencies. The gradautes from Environmental Engineering are employed in civil service and local administration offices, industrial plants, design offices, research institutes, university and secondary schools and private consulting agencies.

Students of Environmental Enginering receive broad knowledge of basic subjects (mathematics, chemistry, biology and ecology). Besides, they learn about the main elements of the environment and the mechanisms of disturbances in its operation, technical sources affecting the environment while studying major subjects (pedology, hydrology, hydrogeology, physics of atmosphere, environmental chemistry and microbiology). They gain elementary knowledge of the environmental protection law, economics, organisation and management. The attained knowledge enables an evaluation and forecasting of the effects upon the environment as well as programming of the biological and technical ways of preventing and rehabilitation of the environment to be carried out. Due to the appropriate course of computer science, a graduate from Environmental Engineering is prepared to make fluent use of data processing techniques. Graduates from Geodesy and Cartography find jobs in surveying enterprises and in cartography, at the divisions of surveying and land management of the civil service and local administration offices, design offices, private companies, research units, university and secondary schools. The status of the land surveyor's profession has been restored. Recently, this profession has been highly esteemed again.

At the Faculty there are two student scientific circles: of Land Surveyors and Environmental Protection.

The doctoral studies in geodesy and environmental engineering were established at the Faculty in 1988. Before 1998, 8 people attained the PhD degrees. Each year up to 10 people are admitted to this course.

Apart from full-time and extramural courses, the Faculty also conducts postgraduate studies. The studies aim at supplementing one's knowledge with the most updated technical solutions.

The syllabus of the postgraduate studies, more than 20 years old, concerns mainly the following problems: protection of mining surfaces; environmental protection; modern measurement techniques in photogrammetry, engineering, industrial and mining surveying; real estate surveying management; assessment of real estates.
