Learning outcomes

The goal of the subject is expanding of student's knowledge in some elected fields of geodesy and surveying. The elected topics should encourage student's interest about the problems and show them correct and simple methods for their solving. The topics are of expanding nature, they are not usually included in standard geodesy courses. Selection of topics will depend on specializations of registered students.
Students will learn to work with scientific literature and use it as a base for own scientific work.

Prerequisites

Knowledge of survey and calculation approaches in geodesy.
Adjustment of network and thery of errors.

Planned educational activities and teaching methods

Lectures, self education, consultations

Forms and criteria of assessment

Student has to write seminar work on given topic. Exam has form of discussion above the seminary work.
