The extensive application of ICTs in the field of geoinformation (or georeferenced spatial data) has created the need for professionals in this area of knowledge. The bachelor’s degree in Geoinformation and Geomatics Engineering intends to respond to this need. It will train you for a career in fields such as geographic information systems, the use of geoinformation for mobile applications and big data processing, global positioning and navigation systems, smart cities, fleet management, photogrammetry (including the use of drones and UAVs), remote sensing, geodesy and surveying.
