PhD in Geomatics Engineering
Geomatics and geospatial information has long since become mobile, and in fact one of the most significant trends of the last five to ten years has been the number of devices in use that have functions of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), besides connection to Internet, what redounds not only in the use but in the creation of location information. In the coming years, the uses and applications based on Geomatics, geospatial information and the precise definition and effective management of the territory will be diversified and increased as governments and the private sector recognize the strategic importance of this information in their daily process of decision making (from long-term planning to the immediate response in cases of emergency, which requires information and models in real time), which is why the discipline is generating and will generate a wide range of professional possibilities.
Ensuring that it is possible to take advantage of the full value of geomatics and geospatial information, as well as the current technological moment and its high evolution in the generation of such information in the coming years, will depend on the necessary training mechanisms with what we have.
