Geodesy and Cartography

The specialized profile of a graduate from this Bachelor's studies program is developed through 6 semesters of study. Graduates acquire a complete first-degree university education, progressing through subjects which build a theoretical, specialized technological and applied foundation. The theoretical foundation of the graduates is developed through studies of the natural sciences - mathematics, physics and geology - followed by specialized theoretical disciplines - surveying, mathematical geodesy, the measurement process and analysis, spherical astronomy and cosmic and physical geodesy. The program is also focused on mastering technological and applied disciplines, including local geodesic systems, engineering geodesy, photogrammetry, geoinformatics, topography, cartographic design and reproduction, land consolidation, cadastral mapping and cadastre of real estate. The graduates' profiles are completed by subjects such as transportation construction, hydraulic engineering and the humanities - the history of construction, surveying and law. Graduates can find employment in all fields of geodesy, cartography and cadastre of real estate in government agencies and development organizations, state administration authorities and in private sector. The graduates are also prepared for further studies in geodesy and cartography.

Building Structures and Architecture

Graduates of this program of study acquire a complete first-degree university education in the field of building structures, which is focused on the preparation and implementation of architectural construction. Graduates acquire and understand the theoretical foundations of the physical and natural sciences as well as the humanities and scientific economic disciplines. This general format is followed by instruction in the engineering sciences which are the foundation of applied scientific disciplines in architecture, the design and implementation of building structures, engineering and environmental projects.

An important part of the instruction is the development of a student's creativity and skills, the use of computing technology, the acquisition of a world foreign language and physical fitness.  The graduates are prepared for second degree programs of study specializing in building structures, architecture and urbanism or structural engineering and transportation engineering. They can also enter the labour market.

Graduates can be employed as members of creative teams, independent workers for construction contractors, and managers of architectural projects.  They can also work for building contractor organizations that are involved in building systems and constructing buildings and also in the fields of construction-related environmental protection. Other employment opportunities can be found in state administration and regional development, within the educational system and in the management of operations and maintenance of buildings and the like.
