Teaching activity:

The Faculty of Geodesy and Cartography of the Warsaw University of Technology was founded in 1921, which makes it the oldest geodesy research and teaching institution of higher education in Poland.

In 2005, the Faculty introduced a new programme in Spatial Planning. The programme is under academic supervision of the Department of Spatial Planning and Environmental Sciences. The courses taught as part of the Spatial Planning programme reflect the traditions, the scientific achievement and the teaching record of the faculty in the field of spatial planning, city planning, natural sciences, rural development, applying the spatial information technologies, processing and interpreting of satellite and aerial images, cartography and real estate management. This translates into competencies acquired by future graduates at different degree levels, including their knowledge, skills and social attitude.

Students in the field of Spatial Planning may pursue two specialisations:
•    Urban design in spatial planning
•    Environmental conditions in spatial planning

The students are offered:
•    full-time programmes (first-cycle Engineer's degree – 7 semesters and second-cycle Master's degree – 3 semesters)
•    part-time programmes (first-cycle Engineer's degree – 8 semesters and second-cycle Master's degree – 4 semesters).

Graduates have the opportunity to continue education by pursuing the third-cycle doctoral programmes offered at the Faculty of Geodesy and Cartography of the Warsaw University of Technology.
