Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes

This programme is underpinned by the philosophy that our graduates should be capable of coping with rapidly changing market conditions in Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland and the region, and with the demands of their future professions in land surveying, geo-information technology and utility management and surveying. The Department has close links with professional bodies and invites industry experts to give guest lectures to students whenever appropriate.

The aims of the programme are to:

  • Provide a land surveying education to meet the requirements of Hong Kong and overseas professional bodies; and
  • Equip students with knowledge of geo-information technology and utility management, so that graduates can work competently and confidently as Geo-Information Systems (GIS) professionals in disciplines such as transport and logistics and environmental, socio-economic, commercial and construction surveying; or as utility professionals in disciplines related to the formation, maintenance and management of underground facilities.

On completion of the programme, students will be able to:

  • Apply appropriate mathematical and computing skills to solve problems and analyze data;
  • Comprehend and apply Geomatics concepts and theories;
  • Master Geomatics technologies and apply them appropriately;
  • Integrate various Geomatics technologies to solve problems in a professional, timely and cost effective manner;
  • Carry out and manage Geomatics projects;
  • Work with and supervise others in accordance with, and abide by, the legal, ethical and professional standard in society; and
  • Respond to advancements in Geomatics and related technologies with an attitude of continuous and lifelong learning.

Curriculum

The programme curriculum enables students to develop careers in the land and utility surveying, and geo-informatics industry and includes both professional knowledge and subjects related to ethics and global engagement. The compulsory subjects equip students with essential knowledge and skills and an introduction to advanced technologies. The programme also provides opportunities for students to pursue further knowledge through independent study.

Compulsory Subjects are offered every year, whereas in principle, all LSGI Elective Subjects are offered once every two years to provide students with two chances to choose a particular subject throughout the 4-year study period.

Professional Recognition

The programme is accredited by The Land Surveyors Board Malaysia (LSB). Re-accreditation has been sought from The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and The Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES). Re-accreditation will also be sought from The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS) and The Hong Kong Institution of Engineering Surveyors (HKIES).

Career Prospects

Graduates become professional land surveyors, geo-information technology specialists or utility specialists.
