School of Environment Science and SpatialInformatics was established in 2000. Currently, it is composed of three departments,that is, Department of Space and Geographic Information, Department of EnvironmentalScience and Engineering, and Department of Land Management, one national engineeringpractice educational centre, ten institutes, including 3G InformationTechnology Application Institute, Mapping and Spatial Information Institute andso on, four research centers such as China-UK Joint Geospatial InformationResearch Center. Additionally, the school has some research platformsconsisting of National and Local Joint Engineering Laboratory, Key laboratoryfor Resource Environment and Disaster Monitoring of SBSM, Jiangsu KeyLaboratory of Resource and Environmental Information Engineering, etc.


Talent Cultivation

At present, the School has 103 facultystaffs, including 88 full-time teachers, 26 professors, and 37 associateprofessors, and dozens of academicians, well-known experts and researchers areadjunct or visiting professors. Besides, Professor Li Deren, a member of the ChineseAcademyof Engineering and InternationalEurasianAcademyof Sciences was appointed to act as the dean of the School. Dozens of teachershold an important position in domestic and overseas societies and academicpublications such as Committee on Earth Observation Satellites, IEEE GRSS, InternationalSociety for Mine surveying (ISM), International Society for EnvironmentalGeotechnics (ISEG), and China Society of Geodesy (CSG).


At present, there are 1,430 undergraduatestudents, 398 postgraduate students, 176 students studying for doctorate and 12international students. The School boasts the first employment rate of above 99% and second employment rate of 100% for its graduates in recent years.The school has three first-class Ph.D. Programs, seven second class Ph. Dprograms, nine master’s degree programs and two centers for post-doctoralstudies, covering the fields of surveying science and technology, environmentscience and technology, environment science and engineering, public management,geodesy and surveying engineering, cartography and geographic informationengineering and so on. According to the the Assessment of China Academic DegreeGraduate Education Development Center, surveying science and technology isranked as No. 2 or No. 3 Some excellent students have the opportunities tostudy abroad, and the top fresh graduates can exempt from admission exam to geta master’s degree. In accordance with measures for the implementation of theconstruction of high-level university postgraduates on a governmentsponsorship, the School can select postgraduate students to study abroad. Inaddition to the school scholarships, there are Xiguang scholarship, Zetaischolarship, China Coal environmental scholarship, Xinan Scholarship, Xuzhou land resourcesscholarship, EV-Image scholarship, grade 95 students education grants and soon.
