University’s UNIVERSITI TEKNOLOGI MALAYSIA (in brief)

The university was established on 14th March 1972 under the name of Institute Teknologi Kebangsaan which was later changed to Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) on 1st. April 1975. The university had its humble beginning as a class for technical studies in Kuala Lumpur in 1904. In 1906, the class was upgraded into a Technical School. In 1941, it was recommended that the Technical School be upgraded to the status of a college.

However, due to the Second World War, the suggestion could only be implemented in 1946 during which the institution became known as the Technical College, Kuala Lumpur. The Technical College then offered three-year Diploma courses in Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Town and Country Planning, Land Surveying and Quantity Surveying. At present UTM’s main campus is in Skudai, Johor and consists of 12 faculties namely, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical and Natural Resources Engineering, Geoinformation Science, Education, Computer Science and Engineering, Build Environment, Science, Education, Computer Science and Information System, Faculty of Management and Human Resource Development, Bioscience & Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering & Health Science. The university offers courses leading to a Diploma, Bachelor, Master and Ph.D degrees.

Message from the Dean

:elcome

to the Faculty of Geoinformation and Real Estate, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). We focus on education and research for undergraduate as well as for postgraduate programs in the related disciplines such as geomatic engineering, property management, geoinformatic, remote sensing and land administration & development. We strive to be a leading academic center in geoinformation and real estate in this region. Our graduates and alumni form major strong professional societies and work force in the related industry. Many of our graduates end up with good jobs not just in Malaysia but also in other countries (Asian, Middle East, Africa and Europe). The strong team and knowledgeable academic members in this faculty provide excellent ingredients for the success of the programs (i.e. with the relevant and up-to-date curriculum and syllabus). We are continuously working to provide and offer rst-class geoinformation and real estate education and research in the country and be on par with other leading institutions in other parts of the globe.

Thank you.

DEPARTMENT OF GEOINFORMATION

BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING (GEOMATIC) PROGRAMME

1.0

Introduction Geomatic Engineering is an area of technology for measuring, managing, presentation and analising the geospatial data relating the earth. Geospatial data are obtained from various sources including observation of satellites orbiting the earth, sensors that are in the air, sea and terrestrial instruments. These data are processed and manipulated using computer and latest softwares. Also included in the area of geospatial are the computer mapping, remote sensing for monitoring the environment and positioning as well as precise navigation using Global Positioning System (GPS). Bachelor of Engineering (Geomatic) programme in the Department of Geomatic Engineering, Faculty of Geoinformation and Real Estate, Universiti Technologi Malaysia is one of the oldest programme in Malaysia. Before 1994 the programme is known as Bachelor of Surveying (Land). This programme obtained full accreditation from the Board of Land Surveyor for Peninsular Malaysia and also from the Public Services Department of Malaysia.

13.0 Courses Synopsis SGHU 1012 - Introduction to Geomatic This course covers the fundamental knowledge of Geomatic Engineering and equip students with both theoretical for wider exposure and better understanding of the subject matters. With this, students can get a wider imagination and view of the activities in geomatic elds that include integrating the acquisition, processing, analysis, display and management of spatial information. Basic introduction include traditional disciplines of photogrammetry and remote sensing, land and engineering surveying, geographic information systems, cartography, geodesy, hydrography, cadastral surveying, land information management and satellite surveying are delivered in this course. SGHU 1013 - Fundamental of Survey and Mapping This course introduces students to fundamental aspects of surveying and mapping. The basic surveying and mapping techniques as well as equipments will be introduced and students will get the opportunities in using these equipments. SGHU 1093 - Computer Programming To provide knowledge in computer programming, which is essential for geomatic engineers. This course will help to solve many geomatics related problems such as surveying computation, graphical analysis with multimedia elements that sometimes are not offered by geomatic commercial software. The teaching concentration will be given to the concept, skills and techniques of problem solving using an appropriate programming language. A commercial programming language will be used in this course. The programming exercises are designed to solve problems in geomatic engineering.

To calculate Grade Point Average (commonly referred to as a GPA) for a semester:

1.

Compute the grade points earned in each subject, using the table above to nd the point equivalent for each grade and multiplying that grade by the number of credits for that course, then adding all resulting numbers. This is a total grade point for the semester.

2.

Add all the attempted credits, whether a pass or fail grade - but do NOT include the credits in a course for which you have earned a TS, HG, HL or HS.

3.

Divide the total grade point by the total number of the attempted credits (again, ignore the credits of the for HL or HS subjects), thus a Grade Point Average for the semester.

8.0 + 6.0 + 8.01 + 6.0 + 6.66 = 34.67 total points In step 2, add the total credits attempted in those graded subjects: 2 (for English) + 2 (for Engineering Math) + 3 (for Material Balance) + 3 (for Material Engineering) + 2 (for TITAS I) = 12 credits attempted In step 3, divide the total grade points earned by the total graded credits (and round the results if needed): 34.67/12 = 2.89, thus your Grade Point Average for the semester (i.e. 2.89)

To calculate a Cumulative Point Average (CPA): •

Add your total point for ALL semesters (see step 1 above).

Calculate the total number of credits attempted in All Semesters (see step 2 above).

Divide your total points for all semesters by the total credits attempted in all semesters. A student academic standing for each semester is based on the acquired CPA while the overall standing is based on the CPA as follows: Academic Standing

CPA

Kedudukan Baik (KB) Good Standing

CPA • 2.00

Kedudukan Bersyarat (KS) Probation

1.70 ” CPA < 2.0

Kedudukan Gagal (KG) Failure

CPA < 1.70

1.

Student with a KS status is not allowed to take more than 12 credits in the following semester.

2.

Those who earned KS for three semesters consecutively will automatically be given an academic standing of KG and will be dismissed from the programme.

3.

Those who earned a GPA < 1.0, with a CPA • 1.70 can • continue his/her study • be asked to take the following semester off • be dismissed from the programme
