Geodesy and geomatics engineering integrate the science of earth observation, including involvement of relevant technology, and the generation of geospatial information. These cover numerous sub-disciplines and the corresponding applications as cadastre, remote sensing, photogrammetry, Geographic Information System, surveying, hydrography, geodynamics, and many others. In accordance with Indonesian national contexts, these sub-disciplines face a new era in contributing more towards earth dynamics’ and life layer problems.
While cadastre, mapping, and infrastructure development remain among of graduates’ career paths, challenges in dealing with spatial planning, natural resources management, maritime development, and mitigation of natural hazard are becoming novel field of contributions of surveyors in our national contexts. In the pace of these widening fields of contributions, graduates in geodesy and geomatics engineering are exposed to complex and challenging environments in higher education and professional contributions.
