The situation of university education in Sweden in land surveying and management

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


The Swedish university market has increased during the latest decades in more than one dimension. The traditional engineering programme in land surveying has become part of a market oriented educational structure. A diversification of university programmes has lead to new Bachelor and Master of Science programmes in land surveying and management, as well as in GIS and geomatics, with today five universities enrolling more than 200 new students yearly.<br><br>

Within the profession of land surveying we cannot rely on the traditional concept of the land surveyor as a guarantee for a continued production of these engineers. At the universities we are aware on the challenges at the educational market, and try to integrate our programmes of the professional profile in the changing context.
