Bachelor of Science in Geodetic Engineering

The Department

       The Bachelor of Science in Geodetic Engineering (BSGE) has been offered under the Department of Geodetic Engineering (DGE) since 2003. The department is one of the best-performing academic departments at VSU owing to its 100% passing rate in the licensure examinations. Graduates from this department have since topped in licensure examinations and have been in-demand in companies.

       DGE offers both Certificate in Geodetic and Geomatics Technology (CGGT), and Diploma in Bachelor of Science in Geodetic Engineering.
