Faculty of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering, as the first faculty in Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering in Iran, has been established in 1954 and has a significant contribution to industry. The faculty offers undergraduate and postgraduate course of studies in four different departments including Geodesy, Geographic Information System (GIS), Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (RS). The educational programs in the faculty aims the endless possibilities of Geomatics engineering offered to the students to help them achieve their future destiny.
With 22 faculty members, an annual average of 35 international papers, and more than 200 graduate students, the Faculty of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering is a powerhouse of research and innovation. The faculty pioneers in physical geodesy, photogrammetry satellite image applications and geospatial analysis. The faculty researchers are at the forefront of continuous progress, accompanied with industrial partnerships, and aim to creating important new fronteers in Geodesy and Geomatics engineering.
Center of Excellence in Geospatial Information Technology (CEGIT)
Geospatial information technology (GIT) is a new branch of information technology, focused on the subjects related to earth science and observation. The main reasons to establish the center of excellence in spatial information technology is to develop domestic knowledge and technology. Faculty of geodesy and Geomatics uses the support of expert professors in different branches of Geomatics. There are a large number of papers being published each year in the well-known scientific journals. In addition, there are various industrial consultancy projects being carried out in this faculty. The performance of the faculty of Geodesy and Geomatics resulted in the establishment of a center of excellence for GIT to boost research in the area of spatial information technology and science. This center supports innovative research and activities in the area of spatial information technology.
Remote sensing Research Center
Remote sensing research center was established in 2009 at the Geodesy and Geomatics Faculty with the support of the Iranian Space Agency (ISA). This center consists of three research departments namely System design and image processing, IT and management of remotely sensed data and Applications of remote sensing. The departments cover various domains in airborne and space borne remote sensing.

The Faculty of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering offers B.Sc, M.Sc and PhD programs in Geomatics and its diverse fields of studies. The educational programs in the faculty aims at presenting the endless possibilities that Geomatics engineering can offer the students and help them achieve their potentials. The faculty staffs are committed to supporting student success, to fostering diversity and to conducting researches that make a difference. The status of the faculty as leading institution in the country is widely acknowledged and accepted. The faculty also has been assigned the responsibility to update the curriculum as well as the course materials for use by all institutions that offer Geodesy and Geomatics course in the country.
The Faculty of Geomatics at K. N. Toosi University of Technology, Iran and the Faculty of Geo-information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) of the University of Twente (UT), The Netherlands are proudly offering a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (Specialization/domain: Geoinformatics). The program has a double degree modality. The argumentation for this modality is that students could take advantage of both qualifications. Students who want to work in Iran in the field of Geomatics, the degree of K. N. Toosi University helps them be employed in the related companies and organizations. On the other hand, this double degree will be of great benefit to students who want to continue their higher education at an international university or work on the international market.
