Surveying Week 2014

The School of Surveying & Construction Management, DIT,  supported by the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI), will host its first ever Surveying Week for Second level (Transition Year) students in the week commencing 28th April.

During the week you will be engaged in a range of practical and 'learning by doing' fun activities which showcase the different land/property/construction/geomatics programmes at Ireland's leading Surveying School and a selection of the careers that these programmes can lead to.

Please view our flyer:SurveyingWeek14

For more information about making an application to participate please contact Catherine Noble cnoble@scsi.ie (by Monday April 7th).

2 New Masters Programmes

The Spatial Information Sciences group at the School of Survey and Construction Management is pleased to announce that two new MSc programmes, in Geospatial Engineering and Geographic Information Science, have been validated by DIT.

Subject to resources both programmes will run in Full-Time and Part-Time modes from September 2013.

Please read on for more information.


MSc in Geographic Information Science (Full time or Part time)

The overall goal of the programme is to produce a highly-educated, technically-competent and marketable graduate who can make a significant contribution in the challenging and developing area of the geospatial sciences. The programme is aimed at deepening the knowledge of graduates from disciplines related to the geospatial sciences such as in geomatics, geography, geology, planning, archaeology, forestry, agriculture, computer science, engineering, environmental sciences or any other relevant discipline.

This is a conversion programme to enable graduates of a related discipline to acquire a qualification in Geographic Infomation Science at Postgraduate Diploma and Masters Level.   The programme is presented within the Spatial Information Sciences division of the School of Surveying and Construction Management in DIT Bolton Street.  A maximum intake of 20 students is planned from different disciplines and backgrounds.

MSc in Geospatial Engineering (Full time or Part time)

The aim of the programme is to prepare innovative graduates to work with high competence, using specialised skills and deep knowledge, as producers, managers and users of geospatial information, at the forefront of developments in domains where geospatial information plays a significant role and in related disciplines.

This is a conversion programme to enable graduates of a related discipline to acquire a qualification in GeoSpatial Engineering at Postgraduate Diploma and Masters Level.   The programme is presented within the Spatial Information Sciences in the new School of Surveying and Construction Management in DIT Bolton Street.  A maximum intake of 20 students is planned from different disciplines and backgrounds.

David Hyland, a recent BSc Geomatics graduate, has won the Trimble Dimensions2012 International Student Paper competition. David’s paper was based on his Geomatics Dissertation where he carried out An Assessment of Ocean Tide Loading on Network RTK and Mitigation Methods in Ireland.  This world-wide competition is open to all undergraduate and to post-graduate students up to Masters level.

The prize includes a 4-day trip to the Trimble Dimensions 2012 conference in Las Vegas, where David will give a 60 minute presentation on his work, and also Trimble GPS equipment worth $30 000 for the College.

For further information on David's success please see the DIT news item: http://www.dit.ie/news/archive2012/ditgeomaticsstudentwinsworld-wideaward/

International success for 2012 Graduate David Hyland

David Hyland's success at the International Trimble Dimensions 2012 competition received national attention through a write-up in the STEM Special Supplement of the Irish Independent on December 14th 2012. Some of the text read as follows:

"Newly-qualified David Hyland is in much demand - and with good reason,
By the time of his conferring a fortnight ago, the 21-year-old from Araglin, Co. Cork, was already employed and more offers have since rolled in.
David graduated from Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) with a degree in Geomatics - a blend of geo- for earth and matics- for maths - which involves the study of the measurement, analysis and management of data relating to the earth and the built environment.
The star student attracted attention with his final year project, beating worldwide competition from both undergraduate and masters students to win the International Trimble Dimensions 2012 competition."

Update April 2013: Following a 4-hour interview with 5 different vice presidents David has been accepted onto the Trimble Graduate Trainee Program and will be heading to the United States shortly to take up his position there.  Congratulations from all at DIT.
