Profile of the Branch
Field of study specified as Mine Survey (continuation master’s curriculum) solves the issues which cover ensuring basic surveying data and their processing for the purpose of compiling map documentation for running mining activities and activities being executed like mining ones. Knowledge acquired during bachelor’s curriculum are deepened with effects resulting from exploitations of workings to the surface, measuring of motions and deformations, science on physical fields of the Earth, especially on a field of gravity and its influence over surveying values. Knowledge in geodesy is extended over the sphere of both the 3D geodesy and theory of global positioning systems. Students are familiar with calculations of mineral resource deposits, as well, with physical principles of surveying instrumentation, as well as metrology issues and accreditation of mine surveying works as per ISO 9000 standards.
