Diploma in Geomatics Engineering


    3 years


Geomatics engineering is an academic discipline that deals with geospatial data in its collection, processing, and visualization. Geomatics technical persons in Nepal were mainly engaged in the land survey/ land management sector and as survey professionals in big construction projects. But with the advancement, its scope of application is expanding even more in the sectors like Photogrammetric surveying, Hydrographic surveying, LIDAR surveying, etc. Professionals in this field utilize highly sophisticated tools and technologies like Theodolite, Total station, GPS (DGPS), UAV, and Geographic information systems along with traditional surveying equipment like plane tables, chains, etc. As per the vision of  CTEVT, Shankharapur polytechnic institute started the diploma in Geomatics Engineering course in 2073 B.S.(2016 A.D.) to reach the rural community level to enroll the students in this discipline and produce middle-level Geomatics engineering professionals with the ability to work in the collection of spatial data by the utilizing the present day surveying equipment and be familiar with emerging high-tech tools, be able to deal with the issues regarding the land management with the knowledge of  National land-related policies, Laws, and directives.
