LAND SUR & GEO-INFO

Short Description

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 that meets the requirements of Hong Kong and overseas professional bodies; and
  • equip students with geo-information technology and utility management skills, enabling graduates to 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 discipline related to the survey, condition diagnosis, maintenance and management of underground facilities.
