Message from the Dean
Welcome to the Faculty of Geomatics, Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka.
On behalf of the staff of the Faculty of Geomatics of the Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka, let me welcome all of you.
Among all of the higher education institutions in the South Asian Region, this is the only Faculty producing graduates in Bachelor of Surveying Sciences covering all the aspects of Geomatics. Our undergraduate programs prepare students for professional careers in various ranges of disciplines such as Land Surveying, Hydrographic Surveying, Remote Sensing, GIS, Photogrammetry, Cartography, and Construction Surveying. Further, the undergraduates are obtaining theoretical knowledge of Satellite and Space Technology that require for sustaining the Space Agency to be established for the country. The real practical knowledge of the disciplines is acquired through industrial training in various institutions locally and internationally in the last semester of the degree program. The staff of the Faculty is engaging on their research works while teaching and supervision of students’ research projects.
The Faculty is fully equipped with all necessary conventional and new hi-tech items that are required to conduct students’ practical programs.
The students for the Faculty are selected by the University Grants Commission (UGC) from the advanced level Mathematics subject stream and presently all of the graduates are employed locally and internationally as well.
Finally, I would like to express my gratitude to all who has inspired our Faculty to be successful as it is now.
