The Department of Geodesy offers undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral programs. By developing and using modern technological solutions and including them in the educational process, we educate independent, competent, and employable graduates. The Department of Geodesy was established in 1980. First headed is Prof. Damdinsuren. Since 2014, it has been working in the Department of Geodesy.

The Bachelor program of Geodesy was accredited by ASIIN, in 2017. Since 2016, the State Olympiad in Geodesy has been organized every year and has been cooperating with professional, state, and private organizations.

The graduates of the Bachelor's degree program in geodesy have knowledge of the basics of processing and analysis of temporal and spatial data, as well as technical, methodical, and legal knowledge in geodesy. They are able to independently analyze basic survey problems and implement practical solutions.

The graduates have the ability to collect simple relevant information, analyze and evaluate it, and are able to become acquainted independently with simple topics and problems, as well as an overview, analyze, interpret, and evaluate them. They are able to determine measurements, perform mathematical processing, measure, map, and calculate by working in all fields of social, economic, and engineering development. They can classify area-specific problems and choose suitable methods for acquiring measurement data, and for analyzing and evaluating them.

The acquired knowledge and ability allow the graduates of the bachelor degree study:

  • Ability to work with geodetic measuring and surveying modern equipment, such as GPS/GNSS, unmanned aerial vehicles, laser scanners, leveling and total station.
  • Knowledge to use of surveying software
  • Ability to measure, surveying, processing and analyzing of engineer geodesy.
  • Ability to cooperate and manage with others during geodetic measurement and mapping
  • It is possible to study and work in master's and doctoral programs at universities in other countries  

Land administration


Mapping, recording, allocating, creating a database, organizing, planning, using land properly within a legal framework, protecting, administering, evaluating, calculating payments and taxes, and monitoring are the tasks to perform by a land administration engineer. Through our training program, students will be able to practice the latest techniques and equipment, work with and process aerial and space data as well as be able to use geographic information system software.  

Graduates will gain the following skills: 

  • To work as a team in a professional team with the knowledge and mindset of land administration and technical engineering,
  • To pursue further development of personal and professional qualities with high cultural and ethical communication,
  • To formulate and implement land use plans, as well as to identify and solve land administration-related problems, 
  • To work with the latest technologies, including unmanned aerial vehicles (drones), laser scanners, GPS, and other surveying and mapping tools,
  • To process aerial and space data as well as use geographic information system software.


On June 7, 2012, the Bachelor of Geodesy program have been accredited for a period of 5 years by National Education Accreditation Council. In 2017, the Bachelor of Geodesy program was accredited by the European ASIIN.
