Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes
The programme aims to provide education and training that give graduates the basic skills necessary to function as geomatics paraprofessionals working in the areas of land surveying (土地測量) and geo-information technology (地理資訊科技).
The programme is well recognised by the profession in Hong Kong and abroad. Our teaching staff members are internationally recognised and our laboratory facilities are state of the art.
Students can study both land surveying and geo-information technology by choosing Elective Subjects in Year Two of the programme.
Students with good results in the HD programme have opportunities, upon submitting applications, to be admitted to senior placements in the Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics programme.
Graduates can apply for advanced entry to related degrees in overseas universities.
The programme is seeking accreditation from the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS) to admit graduates to the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) Scheme under its Land Surveying Division (LSD) [pending approval].
The programme will seek recognition from the Hong Kong Institution of Engineering Surveyors (HKIES) to satisfy the academic requirements for Associate Membership.
Our graduates work as land-surveying technicians in the government or construction, transportation and environment-related companies, or as GIS technicians in government departments or companies that are involved in construction, mapping, information technology, logistics, transportation, environmental monitoring and consulting.
Most of our graduates find employment soon after graduation. Many are also promoted rapidly in their respective organisations.
