Changes and tendencies in European university educations in land surveying

Abstract
The European university market in land surveying and land management is diversified. In many countries MSc programmes have a strong geomatic profile. In the Nordic countries the BSc and MSc engineering programmes integrate geomatics, land legislation, land policies, planning, real estate economics and property management. Such diversity is attractive for youngsters in choosing their university studies.

The European Bologna Process is challenging the national educational systems, aiming at a more integrated educational market in Europe. The mobility of students is encouraged, by changing universities from the BSc to the MSc level, as well as for the PhD level.

The European university market in land surveying and land management is diversified. In many countries MSc programmes have a strong geomatic profile. In the Nordic countries the BSc and MSc engineering programmes integrate geomatics, land legislation, land policies, planning, real estate economics and property management. Such diversity is attractive for youngsters in choosing their university studies.

The European Bologna Process is challenging the national educational systems, aiming at a more integrated educational market in Europe. The mobility of students is encouraged, by changing universities from the BSc to the MSc level, as well as for the PhD level.

The university market has also become diversified at a national level, with an increase of new universities and university colleges. In Sweden the market was deregulated in 1993, leading to a diversification of BSc and MSc programmes in GIS, land surveying and land management. Five universities are today offering such programmes, compared to one before the 1990’s. Each university has to find its recruitment area and educational profiles. Examples are given of current changes in the Swedish university systems. (Less)
