Course Contents
The graduation work is the last step in the Geomatics education. It is completed in the form of an individual research project. GEO2020 follows GEO2010, and involves carrying out the research according to the plan of GEO2010.

The topic of the scientific project can be related to any of the subjects offered by the Geomatics programme. The project must be supervised by one or more of the lecturers who participated in the Geomatics education. The project can be performed in cooperation with a company/institution, which provides a use case or a problem statement (but the work is always supervised by the scientific staff of the university).

The graduation work deliverables are: (1) a scientific report (a thesis); and (2) an oral presentation.
Study Goals
