Program description

Master's study programme with Full-Time Mode of Study (continuing) in Czech

Study aims

The division of the two-year follow-up Master's study program Geodesy and Cartography is based on the tradition of long-term study programs at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Brno University of Technology (hereinafter referred to as the “Faculty of Civil Engineering BUT ” which meet current demand and needs of technical practice in the Czech Republic and the European Union.
The content of the study program is designed to meet the requirements of:
- Act No. 111/1998 Coll., on Higher Education and on the Amendment to Other Acts, as amended (hereinafter referred to as the “Higher Education Act”),
- Government Regulation No. 274/2016 Coll., on Standards for Accreditation in Higher Education,
- Government Regulation No. 275/2016 Coll., on Education in Higher Education
all in accordance with the methodological materials of the Board of the National Accreditation Office for Higher Education and the documents of the Brno University of Technology (hereinafter “BUT”) and the Faculty of Civil Engineering of BUT.
The study program is taught in the Czech language in full-time form of study and is intended for graduates of bachelor's degree programs of technical specialization in the Czech Republic and the EU. The content of the course builds mainly on the knowledge of graduates of the three-year bachelor study program Geodesy and Cartography at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the BUT. The study program enables the mobility of students and the completion of part of the study at other selected universities with a similar focus.
The study program is aimed at gaining knowledge and skills in theoretical and engineering disciplines in the field of geodesy and cartography. The content of the study program are theoretically focused subjects with examples of practical applications. The aim of the study is to acquaint students with theoretical and practical aspects of the surveying profession. The study is a continuation of the bachelor study program Geodesy and Cartography and further develops knowledge in the areas of theoretical, space and engineering geodesy, as well as cartography and geographic information systems. The study deepens students' previous knowledge, accentuates modern technologies and their thorough understanding with the aim of educating a generally educated surveying engineer.
After passing the final state examination, the graduate is entitled to use the title “inženýr” (abbreviated to Ing. before the name).
