The Geospatial Engineering MPhil and PhD at Newcastle University aims to foster, promote and conduct research of international quality. We attract high-quality graduates and researchers and train them to international standards.

Our research has significant relevance in non-academic settings. We often apply it through consultancy to industry. This includes:

  • the global offshore industry

  • local authorities

  • engineering and surveying companies.

We are a key part of the TSB Satellite Applications Catapult North East Centre of Excellence.

Examples of MPhil and PhD supervision in our research areas include:

Satellite geodesy GPS and geophysical modelling GPS/GNSS geodesy precise orbit determination of altimetric and geodetic satellites sea level ice sheet mass balance satellite altimetry static and temporal gravity field and reference frame analyses from dedicated satellite missions SAR interferometry geophysical and industrial deformation monitoring geodynamics and geohazards integration of GPS and INS engineering geodesy

Geospatial Engineering geoinformatics and advanced GIS geospatial algorithm development spatial modelling including network modelling, cellular automata and agent based approaches to spatial complexity multimedia cartography and information delivery temporal GIS geospatial data management airborne and satellite remote sensing applied to environmental impact assessment land use, vegetation and pollution monitoring Earth observation of urban systems photogrammetry laser scanning precise non-contact dimensional control.
