About

Geomatics for the Built Environment provides vital spatial knowledge about the built environment. Students learn to use advanced techniques in data collection and analysis, spatial information modelling and the visualisation of data. Geomatics professionals easily find jobs in (international) companies, universities and governmental institutes.

With Geomatics for the Built Environment you will learn to use advanced techniques in data collection and analysis, spatial information modelling and the visualisation of data. You will gain knowledge about the use, governance and application of geographic data for solving real-world problems in an innovative way. You will become proficient in quickly analysing the needed geospatial information, performing the required processing and analysis steps and producing an appealing visualisation or presentation of your solutions.

The remote sensing techniques that you will learn in this programme, give you the ability to measure and observe our environment and especially the features that are beyond the capability of the human eye. Data management and analysis techniques allow you to turn these measurements into useful information and knowledge, with which patterns can be identified, behaviour over time can be tracked and the future state can be predicted.
