About

They publish in leading international journals, at conferences, in the media and through educational outreach programmes. Whether focusing on geodesy or geospatial engineering, by taking the Geomatics programme from Newcastle University you will work with experts to produce research of an international standard.

Overview

The Geomatics programme from Newcastle University enjoys an international reputation for using the latest science to solve problems of global importance. Our research has significant relevance in non-academic settings and we regularly apply it through consultancy to industry, from the global offshore industry to local authorities and survey and engineering companies. We are a key part of the TSB Satellite Applications Catapult North East Centre of Excellence.

For geomatics we have MPhil and PhD supervision in the following areas:

Satellite geodesy

  • GPS and geophysical modelling
  • GPS/GNSS geodesy
  • precise orbit determination of altimetric and geodetic satellites
  • sea level
  • ice sheet mass balance
  • satellite altimetry
  • static and temporal gravity field and reference frame analyses from dedicated satellite missions
  • SAR interferometry
  • geophysical and industrial deformation monitoring
  • geodynamics and geohazards
  • integration of GPS and INS
  • engineering geodesy

Geospatial Engineering

  • geoinformatics and advanced GIS
  • geospatial algorithm development
  • spatial modelling including network modelling, cellular automata and agent based approaches to spatial complexity
  • multimedia cartography and information delivery
  • temporal GIS
  • geospatial data management
  • airborne and satellite remote sensing applied to environmental impact assessment
  • land use, vegetation and pollution monitoring
  • Earth observation of urban systems
  • photogrammetry
  • laser scanning
  • precise non-contact dimensional control

Delivery

We offer the MPhil and PhD on a full time or part time basis. You will work with research-active academics who will provide advice and support throughout your research project. You will receive formal training in research skills and methods and discipline-specific training is provided where appropriate.

The first three months of study involve intensive theoretical and practical tuition to ensure that you have the study skills to plan your project and can use the equipment and software related to your research. You are encouraged to attend our weekly research seminar series and to present your work at our annual postgraduate research conference, group seminars and relevant international conferences.

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

Our programme will help you to:

  • complete a training needs analysis, so that you know what your current skills are and where you need help and development
  • use your training needs analysis to create your personal development plan
  • identify appropriate workshops or other events that will help you most and best address your development needs
  • gain the personal and professional key skills development for the successful completion of your research degree
