The Department of Geomatics at National Cheng Kung University offers a MSc degree to international students. Geomatics education will open a door to very challenging, interesting, and special career prospects for you.


Geomatics comprises the science and technology of gathering, analyzing, interpreting, distributing, and utilizing geospatial (Earth-based) information. At National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), the research and teaching activities in the Department of Geomatics evolve around the subjects of, but not limited to, geodesy, surveying, mapping, kinematic positioning, vehicle navigation, cartography, photogrammetry, remote sensing (RS), geographical information system (GIS), and global navigation satellite system (GNSS). Each or a combination of these subjects have important connection to our daily life. For example, the combination of GIS and GNSS facilitates transportation means and greatly improves marine and land navigation.

The Department of Geomatics at National Cheng Kung University has a distinguished history and tradition of excellences in teaching, research, and services.
