Survey your way to success with the FEATI Geodetic Engineering Program!

A Geodetic Engineering graduate has the biggest advantage as the construction industry in the Philippines is experiencing massive growth. There are more job opportunities than the number of geodetic engineers available.

As the demand for more skilled geodetic engineers’ increases, FEATI University continuously improves and strengthens its Geodetic Engineering Program to produce highly competent graduates.

The Great FEATI Experience

FEATI University offers the 4-year Bachelor of Science in Geodetic Engineering (BSGE) Program in accordance with CHED Memorandum Order No. 89, series of 2017.

Geodetic Engineering is the branch of engineering that includes the establishment of geodetic control network, collection of ground data using various methodologies, techniques, platforms and sensors; processing, evaluation and analysis of collected data to generate information for various applications; quality assurance of outputs in accordance with the accepted standards and specifications; development of survey and mapping standards and protocols; conduct of research and development activities; development of spatial information systems; and development of business entrepreneurial skills.

The Program aims to develop research-oriented students in the fields of Surveying and Mapping, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Satellite Surveying using Global Navigation Satellite Systems like Global Positioning System (GPS); Remote Sensing, and Land Administration.

Equipped with the needed competencies, the students of Geodetic Engineering are prepared for a broad range of career opportunities ranging from private entrepreneurial practice to specialized fields in Geodetic Engineering.

The Great FEATI Advantage

The Department of Geodetic Engineering ensures that teaching methods and practices adhere to the outcomes-based education principles which are adopted to achieve the desired learning objectives and end-results.

The Geodetic Engineering Program continues to maintain CHED and PACUCOA accreditations. It is currently working towards ISO and PTC accreditations on the new curriculum that is compliant with CHED CMO 8 S.2018.

The Department also prides itself of having highly competent and experienced Geodetic Engineers who have been and are currently practicing the profession, both in the government and the private sectors.

Under the tutelage of world-class faculty members with vast experience in the field of geodetic engineering, BSGE graduates of FEATI University become highly competitive and are readily and gainfully employed in either the private or the government sector.
