Master of Science in National Geo-survey (Full Time & Part Time)

Former Name: Master of Science in National Geo-survey and Public Policy

National Geo-Survey has become very critical for national, provincial and city governments, especially for public policy studies and public management. Many countries have formed the national agencies for geo-survey, such as US Geological Survey in USA. Chinese government has allocated ¥17 billion to start the national geo-survey program in 2013. Governmental units at every level are demanding new graduates and professionals with an advanced background in National Geo-Survey for precise public management.

Students can study in either one year full-time or two years part-time program. The full-time program provides a platform for experienced professionals or fresh graduates from universities to pursue an intensive course of study. It is expected to attract non-local students coming from Mainland China, Southeastern Asia and other parts of the world. The part-time program provides a flexible mode of study for local civil servants and commercial and academic professionals to pursue this degree.
