Land use Management and Cadasters
About the profession
The programme prepares specialists in topographic surveying, on-site measurements and land surveying. Specialists in the field of land management and cadaster deal with land allocation for various purposes (construction, agriculture, etc.). The programme teaches to determine coordinates of boundaries, size and area of land. Graduates carry out actions for rational and efficient land use, monitoring, surveys and protection in accordance with the legal regulations.
Future bachelors will acquire knowledge and practical skills in using modern technologies for creating land information systems, monitoring land resources, geodetic support for land management and cadastral work. Students will learn to apply terrestrial and satellite geodetic methods and the results of aerial and space surveys, unmanned aerial vehicles, laser scanning.
The Master's programme educational process goes hand-in-hand with science and production. Leading scientists and specialists in the field teach major subjects. Programme internship takes place in the most advanced land management, cadastral, geodetic and valuation companies and research organizations.
Geodesy, Photogrammetry, Remote sensing, Cartography, Basic land management, Basic real estate cadaster, Basic AutoCAD, Application of satellite technologies in land management and cadasters, Automation of topographic and geodetic works, Land monitoring, Land law, etc.
The first and second year students will undergo field practical training. They will acquire skills enabling them to work with modern geodetic instruments. Students will master the technology of topographic surveying, learn to operate unmanned aerial vehicles and decode aerial and space imagery for operational monitoring of land. The third year students will undergo a six-week internship in industrial and scientific organizations where they will master technologies of land management, cadastral and geodetic works on real objects. As a rule, the internship place becomes the first workplace for future bachelors.
Graduates’ expertise and career opportunities
Graduates will work as cadastral engineering assistants, surveying engineer and geodesic engineers in departments of Rosreestr, land registry offices departments and agencies of federal state unitary enterprise “Rostechinvenntarizatsiya”, departments of architecture and town planning, departments of the Federal Property Management Agency, geodesic and real estate firms, insurance companies, etc.
Most of all, I like a great number of practical trainings. I learned how to operate drones, robotic total stations and determine the accurate position using GLONASS and GPS systems. Besides that, I interned in the Center for Certification and Environmental Monitoring «Moskovskiy». I participates in real work monitoring land resources and creation of an electronic soil map of the Moscow region. I plan to use received materials for my thesis and scientific articles.
During the course, I had difficulties with a large number of specific Russian-language terms. Fortunately, with the help of teachers of major subjects, who speak English, I quickly understood their meaning. International relations of RUDN helped me to find a place for practical training at home in Greece in the partner Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. There I got skills using satellite images to study the agricultural lands. In the future, I plan to enroll in a joint master programme of RUDN and the Aristotle University. Moreover, this programme is fully implemented in English.
