About the profession
Graduates will be able to carry out surveying of land and real estate, forming boundary-setting plan and other documents for entering in the cadastral register. They will be able to solve a wide range of tasks related to the creation of digital cartographic products using laser scanning systems, robotic total stations, GLONASS / GPS technologies, unmanned aerial vehicles and aerial and space surveys. The aquited knowledge will be applied to plan a rational and efficient use of land and real estate objects, conducting examinations and dispute resolution in the sphere of property and land relations, cadastral valuation, etc.
Classes are conducted by highly qualified RUDN with a doctor and candidates of sciences degree, prominent scientists and practicing experts from leading academic and industrial organizations. The most modern geodetic, photogrammetric and cartographic equipment is used for practical and laboratory work. Student will have an opportunity to work with satellite systems, robotic total stations, digital levels, unmanned aerial vehicles, digital photogrammetric stations. The Institute also has innovative software for the design and automation of land surveying, geodetic and cadastral work.

Work experience and research internships are held in the leading scientific and manufacturing companies in Russia and foreign partner universities. As a rule, the first internship becomes their workplace for the future master.
Graduates’ expertise and career opportunities
Our graduates work in leading state and private organizations that carry out geodetic, cadastral and land management work in Russia and abroad. Graduates work in Russian and foreign relevant organizations as engineering manager; senior engineer; geodetic engineer; surveying engineer; cadastral engineer. In addition, masters successfully work in related fields: appraisal and real estate companies; companies for monitoring land resources; construction companies; agricultural holdings, etc.
Representatives of the leading organizations in the field of geodesy, photogrammetry and land management were also involved in the training process. There were many workshops and trainings conducted by such scientists as Igor Savin, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Vladimir Kaftan, Chief Scientist of the Geophysical Center, invited European Professor Ioannis Gitas and other. This helped us understand the subjects from the specialists and a scientist point of view, which is important for work in real conditions.
In our country, the issue of rational use of land is very serious and therefore, this profession is very popular. I like the fact that the first month of training I was assigned a supervisor. I had a few extra classes with him, clarified if some issues were unclear to me. In addition. I was sent to do research work in the company «Vidproekt». There, I could conduct the research on the optimal design of land plots for their future use in agricultural production. Upon return home, I plan to implement this project with my supervisor. It might be the beginning of my thesis.
