The Department of Geodesy and Cartography is one of the oldest, founded since the day of the foundation of TsECI. The department conducts classes with 1st-year students of other departments of specialties "Construction" and "Engineering networks and systems", and is currently producing bachelors in the specialty "Geodesy and cartography" and undergraduates in specialty "Geodesy"
Teachers of the department lecture, conduct practical and laboratory classes in geodesy courses, the theory of mathematical processing of geodetic measurements, geodetic tools, direct diploma and course design, conduct summer geodesic practices. The department possesses modern geodetic and computer equipment for conducting practical and laboratory classes on all readable courses.
A significant place in the work of the department is occupied by summer educational geodetic practices, which allow students to more deeply study methods and methods of geodetic measurements directly on the terrain. Educational practice in geodesy with students of the first year requires deep methodological work, pedagogical skills of the leaders of practice.
