Engineering is one such career which many of you might have dreamt to pur sue. Even within engineering course there are many branches and Geomatics Engineering could be one of the options for you.

In Nepal, the Kathmandu University School of Engineering is providing Bachelor of Engineering in Geomatics Engineering since 2007 where it has collaborated with the Land Management Training Centre under the Ministry of Land Reform and Management.

Meanwhile Tribhuvan University Institute of Engineering, Paschimanchal Campus Pokhara (WRC) is working to introduce BE in Geomatics Engineering from this year.

Analysis of geography
With the development of modern technologies and scientific discoveries, the need for geomatics engineers has been felt as they play a prime role in development of infrastructure.

Asst Prof Subash Ghimire, programme co-ordinator at Department of Civil and Geomatics Engineering, KU defines this course as “a modern discipline that integrates data acquisition, geo information, data examination, modelling, analysis, measurement of space, satellite information and more.“

He further reveals that the first and most important thing while developing the infrastructure is geographical information. But if the information is wrong, the development works would be unsustainable. So, for sustainable development, there must be analysis of that particular geography where Geomatics Engineering is required from the beginning to the end of that work.

Meanwhile, Ganesh Prasad Sigdel, BE in Geomatics Engineering VIIIth semester student at KU explains, “Geomatics Engineering is a discipline of science that specialises on surveying, mapping, analysis and Earth ob servation. It brings together technology, software and human resource to disseminate information about Earth, its features that further aid in decision making and planning.“

And for those interested in computer programming, this course offers “software customisation and development of applications (softwares), specialised in field of surveying, mapping and analysis, which helps to add customised functionality to system, which is unavailable in in-built form.“

It is a four-year course with eight semesters. The students are entitled to do internships in organisations during their IVth year “where they get practical knowledge of real world“ as per Ghimire.

And as one goes to field work for one month in each semester, one can implement theoretical knowledge into practical, as per Sigdel.Ghimire further mentions, “One of the unique features of BE in Geomatics Engineering at KU is that it has investment from the government.“

Who can study?

Any student from Science stream who has studied Physics, Maths and Chemistry in their +2 and scored minimum 50 per cent are eligible to sit for the Kathmandu University Common Admission Test (KUCAT) taken by KU, as per Ghimire.“To get admission, the students must have secured their name on the merit list of KUCAT,“ he adds.

There is also provision of scholarships for students in different categories. Two students who are either government employee or from engineering service or from survey group of the government get 100 per cent scholarship.

The scholarship is also granted on regional basis where two students from each development region -Eastern, Western, Mid Western and Far Western -get 50 per cent scholarship.

Meanwhile, interested 10 students from KUCAT merit list are entitled to 33 per cent scholarship, according to the new MoU signed between the Land Management Training Centre and KU School of Engineering as per Ghimire.

He reveals, “The scholarship programme tends to change every four years according to the MoU signed between the Land Management Training Centre and KU School of Engineering.“

After the studies
After completion of BE in Geomatics Engineering, the graduates can work in different governmental and non-governmental organisations.

“As Nepal is a developing country, there is much work on development of infrastructure. So, one can get opportunities in road development, topography design, sanitation, town development, satellite image acquiring et cetera,“ Ghimire elaborates the course's scope.

Governmental organisations like Election Commission, Land Reform and Management, Army and Police as well as hydropower projects are some areas in need of Geomatics engineers.

But what does it require to be a Geomatics Engineer? Sigdel suggests, “Those who like outdoor work, solving mathematical problems, explore technology and are willing to work with data can do good in the field of Geo matics Engineering.“

Challenge Sharing the difficulties he is facing as a student, Sigdel explains, “The experts who can teach us are mostly govern mental officials and they are posted in various places. So, it becomes difficult to meet them regarding our course.“

Ghimire opines, “As this course is about modern technology we might not have sufficient technologies where students have higher expectations and we cannot meet them all.Human resource is also less.“

COST
BE in Geomatics Engineering
Rs 4,95,000 for four years (the cost increases by 10 per cent every year)
Seats: 30
