Academic Degrees in Surveying in Finland

The basic Finnish university degree in surveying is the Master's degree. Only the Helsinki University of Technology has the full program for that degree in surveying. A total of 180 credit units (1 credit unit = 1 "full-time study week") is required for it, divided into required and optional courses in general and basic studies, studies leading to specializations, at least two fields of specialization, practical training, and a M.Sc. thesis. The average duration is six years. Since 2001 the Institute has two specializations to offer: Geomatics and Real Estate Economics. Beyond the M.Sc. degree one can study for the Licentiate of Technology degree (a sort of junior doctorate), and upon a successful defense of dissertation one may be awarded a Doctorate of Technology.
