Undergraduate Program

Surveying and Geo-Informatics


The Department of Surveying and Geoinformatics was established in 2023/2024 academic session alongside with four other departments in the Faculty of Environmental Science, The Department started with Dr. Y. M. Obansa as pioneering staff and also as the informal acting head of the Department. The Department started with ten (10) pioneering students whose first seasonal courses are university general courses. Surveying and Geoinformatics is an applied discipline that deals with the acquisition, analysis, storage, distribution, management of geo-spatially referenced data in time and space..

Our Vision

Aims & Objectives
Admission Requirement
Graduation Requirements

To be a department of global repute in human capacity development at graduate and postgraduate levels that can deploy modern Surveying and Geoinformatics tools in addressing societal geospatial challenges.

To be train up students that are well endowed with global best practise in Surveying and Geoinformatics that can withstand the global dynamics while achieving sustainable development in the built environment fir societal harmony.

The aim of this programme is to train students that are knowledgeable in the application of modern geospatial tools in precision survey of features in human environment that meet the present and future needs of the society. This is to be achieved through the following objectives:

  1. Train students that can identify and appreciate the interrelationships among human environments element.
  2. Expose students to geographic concepts, theories, and software that are adaptable to environmental problems in the areas of geospatial management,
  3. educate students on system-of-system in the ecosystem and the relationships among the professional in the built environment,
  4. expose students to the principle of plate tectonic and the dynamism in geolocation
  5. train student in real-time data acquisition techniques and the harmonization of multi-sourced data in survey analysis and reporting.
