Life During and Beyond Geomatics

Life During and Beyond Geomatics

Bringing our students and industrial partners together

Held at the start of each academic year, this event allows our students to engage directly with our industrial partners.

The event runs very much like a trade show, where students can find out more about:

  • Career and placement opportunities and advice
  • Industry trends/emerging areas
  • Latest software/equipment demonstrations
  • Postgraduate study options
  • Professional qualifications and pathways

Together with Industry

In the past this event has attracted professional bodies, trade groups, and commercial organisations from across Europe. Regular exhibitors include Leica Geosystems, Ordnance Survey and BP.

Students studying our BSc Surveying and Mapping Science and BSc Geographic Information Science degrees from all years are exposed to industry in a way that allows them to see the breadth of professional practice and disciplines that relate to their degrees.  It also allows them to develop confidence in talking to professionals and aids the academic and social transitions throughout their studies and beyond providing an ongoing learning experience. 

Speaking on the benefits of the event, Industrial Liaison Manager Karen Allenby said, "This event provides a unique opportunity for exhibitors not only to connect with Newcastle University Geomatics students and staff, but also to network informally with industry colleagues, many of whom are Newcastle Alumni."
