We are very pleased to announce that we are adding to our Masters programme repertoire with two new postgraduate degrees: MSc Geomatics for Building Information Modelling (BIM), and MSc Spatio-Temporal Analytics and Data Mining.
The former builds upon UCL Geomatics’ extensive experience in laser scanning, surveying, GIS, photogrammetry and 3D imaging and delivers a 1-year course in the acquisition and integrated management of geo-spatial and BIM-related data. We will also cover the organisational and legislative framework of BIM and expose students to real-world applications, research case studies and guide them through their own BIM-related research.
In the first term, students will take the following core modules (module leaders also given here):
- Mapping Science [Dietmar Backes]
- GIS Principles & Technology [Tao Cheng]
- Data Analysis [Jon Iliffe]
- Principles & Practice of Surveying [Liz Jones]
These modules will be shared with other postgraduate students on our Surveying and Hydrographic surveying programmes, and their will be some overlap with students on the GIS and Space Time Analytics courses too.
In the second term, students will be introduced to more specialised content in laser scanning, 3D geometric modelling, spatial databases, 3D GIS and Data Management, through the following compulsory modules:
- Applied Building Information Modelling [Jan Boehm]
- Terrestrial Data Acquisition [Stuart Robson]
- Spatial Data Management [Claire Ellul]
There are also optional Image Understanding and Survey Project modules, and each student must undertake an individual research project over the summer.
