PROGRAMME PHILOSOPHY    

 Bachelor of Technology in Surveying and Geoinformatics(B. Tech. Surveying and Geoinformatics)                   

The philosophy that guides this programme is the production of skilled manpower that is adequately trained and furnished with comprehensive information required to be self-reliant in spatial data handling. Such manpower must be produced in an atmosphere with the appropriate human and material resources through the adoption of effective techniques of instruction and exposure to the actual practice of Surveying and Geoinformatics. The goal of this programme is to develop a pool of competent graduates and professionals capable of providing geospatial information necessary for the exploration, exploitation and management of our environmental resources. The graduates produced can be gainfully employed in Federal and State parastatals, Tertiary Institutions, Exploration Companies, Private Survey firms etc.

Specific objectives are to:

(a)     train students to have a broad and balanced information in the theoretical and practical skills in the field of Surveying and Geoinformatics;

(b)    turn out professionally registrable graduates of Surveying and Geoinformatics capable of understanding and implementing geospatial policy matters at local and national levels;

(c)  produce graduates who can understand and articulate the roles of geospatial data products and services in relation to social and economic development  issues; and

(d)  offer appropriate service courses to other programmes in the University.

 

 Post Graduate Diploma (PGD) Programme     

The philosophy of this programme is to create an enabling environment of interaction between those candidates who have acquired technological experience with limited academic exposure and those graduates in Surveying and Geoinformatics who may not have gone through the rigors of practical experience. This will produce a blend of Surveyors who will function effectively in the areas of Surveying and Geoinformatics.

Specific objectives are to:

(a)        bridge the gap between the Higher National Diploma and First degree in Surveying and Geoinformatics in order to allow the former pursue higher degree programmes and also qualify them for registration with Surveying and Geoinformatics professional bodies;

(b)        train those who may wish to make up their deficiencies in first degree to qualify them for admission into Masters Degree programme in Surveying and Geoinformatics; and

(c)        produce qualified professional, project analysts and project developers in the broad areas of Surveying and Geoinformatics.

 

Master of Technology (M.Tech.) Programme                      

The philosophy of the M. Tech. programme is specifically directed towards providing graduates with the opportunity for further studies and research in the specialized areas of Surveying and Geoinformatics.

Specific objectives are to:

(a)      provide an advanced knowledge for the holders of Postgraduate Diploma  

          (PGD) and Bachelor of Technology/Science Degree in Surveying and

          Geoinformatics which qualifies them for admission into Ph.D Degree in Surveying

          and Geoinformatics; and

(b)     produce qualified surveyors, research/project analysts and project developers in

          the broad areas of surveying and geoinformatics.

 

Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D)

The philosophy of the Ph.D programme is specifically directed towards providing qualified candidates with the opportunity for further studies and research in the specialized areas of Surveying and Geoinformatics.

Specific objectives are to:

 (a)     provide advanced knowledge and skills for the holders of Master of Technology

         (M.Tech.) Degree in Surveying and Geoinformatics; and 

(b)    produce qualified researchers, research project analysts and project developers in  

         the specialized areas of Surveying and Geoinformatics.
