Theses or final projects

The National Land Survey offers students – especially students of surveying – an opportunity to write study-related theses or carry out study-related final projects. By having theses written or final projects carried out, the National Land Survey gains access to the newest research and expertise.

The subject of the thesis or final project is customised according to the National Land Survey's needs in such a way that it meets the goals of the university's theses and the student's Curriculum.

We advertise our thesis positions on our external website and, depending on the subject, on the electronic information channels of various educational institutes, for example Aarresaari and Jobstep.net.

We are currently searching for temporary assistant researchers, thesis workers and doctoral students at the Finnish Geospatial Research Institute, National Land Survey (FGI, NLS) to work in the research projects of the department of Geodesy and Geodynamics. Send your application by 28.2.2018. Read more about the positions here.
