Geodetic Engineering Student Handbook

A. Introduction
The UP Department of Geodetic Engineering is the country's leading institution in
geospatial research and instruction, serving the nation through its undergraduate
and graduate degree programs, and its various training modules. Since its
establishment in 1937, the department has been continuously enhancing its
resources, through constant faculty development and facility upgrades, to the
demands of a growing nation and the challenges in the global community.
B. History of GE Department
An Ad-Hoc Committee composed of representatives from the Board of Technical
Surveys and Maps, the Land Authority, and the University of the Philippines, was
convened in August of 1963 to plan and program the establishment of a Training
Center for Applied Geodesy and Photogrammetry in the Philippines under the
administration and supervision of the University of the Philippines. A
memorandum of agreement, signed on December 18, 1963, by the Governor or
the Land Authority and the President of the University of the Philippines,
culminated in the establishment of the Training Center on October 7, 1964.
The advent of a national government program for land reform and the need for
accelerated industrial, agricultural, and commercial growth and sociological wellbeing in the country, have rendered advance techniques in surveying
indispensable tools for the inventory and planning in agriculture and forestry, for
geological and sociological surveys, as well as for all kinds of mapping for
engineering for technical administration.
The conceptual plans for the training program of the Center were in a two-fold
aim. On the short-range basis, it seeks to fill the immediate needs of the various
agencies for technical personnel required in the execution of land capability
surveys and mapping for Land Reform use by means of aerial photogrammetry.
On a long-range basis, it has aimed to provide through formal classroom
laboratory and field work, training for the development and advancement of
technical personnel of the Land Authority, other government agencies and the
private sector in the fields of geodesy, photogrammetry, photo-interpretation, and
cartography, on a national level, and ultimately, on a regional level, for the Far
East and Asia.

Geodetic Engineering Student Handbook

The Training Center in effect provides a continuing geodetic engineering program


for engineers, agriculturists, foresters and geologists. Seminars and special
summer courses had been conducted for teachers, professionals, practitioners and
other government personnel who are not able to attend the regular semestral
training programs.
Another major function of the Training Center is research, covering as many
aspects of photogrammetry, applied geodesy and photo-interpretation as possible.
Through collaborative works with various government agencies, local and
international universities, and with the industry, a variety of research and creative
works have been conducted increasing and refining techniques, concepts and
methods in the practice of surveying, cartography, and photogrammetry. In
addition, members of the academic staff of the Center have been providing
technical assistance on consultation basis.
The promotion and coordination of these activities, particularly those crossing
Department and College lines, have been facilitated by the Department of
Geodetic Engineering, which is simultaneously manned by the Training Center
Staff.

N. Academic Integrity
Taken from College of Engineerings thou shall not CHEAT primer
1. Who do we have in mind when we wrote this?
We have you, our students, in mind as our primary readers. But,
this will also be useful to our faculty members who can use it as
their guide to check whether an act committed by their student is
acceptable or not, and to guide them on the steps to take in
resolving a case.
It is important for us, students to realize that being unaware of the
policies of the university is not an excuse for committing acts of
dishonesty.
2. What are the acts considered intellectually dishonest?
According to the UP Draft Student Code, the following are
considered intellectually dishonest acts:
o Plagiarism
o Distortion and/or destruction of data
o Copying or providing the means of accessing means to
copy exam answers, homework, projects, laboratory
experiments, term papers, etc.
o Possession and/or use of cheat devices during an
examination
o Allowing another person to take an examination in ones
name, and/or allowing someone to impersonate oneself in
an academic activity
o Manipulating a corrected exam paper
o Submission of the same work in two or more courses
without the instructors consent
3. What is considered Plagiarism?
Plagiarism may take on different forms. As cited by Eloisa Ventura
(1999) in On Your Own: Doing Research Without Plagiarism1,
these can be in the form of:
o Submitting a paper that you did not write yourself
o Copying a paper or paraphrasing materials from a source
text without acknowledging the source

42 | P a g e

Geodetic Engineering Student Handbook


o

Copying a part of a paper with an acknowledgement, but


without quotation marks.

4. How then can plagiarism be prevented?


Cite all sources of your information if it is not yours. Data, figures
and photos which were prepared by other authors should have
source information included.
5. What is the correct way of referring to other peoples works?
There are many styles of referencing, but all of them include the
information regarding the author/s name/s, the title of the work,
date the work was published, the paper where the work was
published, publisher. One style is the one shown in the footnote.
You will learn more details on proper citation when you take it up
in an English writing class.
6. Can we copy text verbatim and cite the source?
Yes, only if the text is placed in quotes when the text is less than
four lines. For text more than four lines, it should be blocked
(indented from the left margin).
7. Can we cite sources from the internet?
Yes, but the website should be included in the reference and the
date when it was accessed. However, since we also have to be
careful of the integrity of the source websites, we discourage you
from using websites as sources of your information. There are
numerous books and journals available in the library which we
encourage you to read and use in your reports.
8. Where can we learn these techniques on referencing, and avoiding
plagiarism?
These are being taught in an English class with a course title of
English 30. This is the reason why we highly encourage you to take
this class. Not only will you learn writing techniques, you will also

Ventura, Eloisa. On Your Own: Doing Research Without Plagiarism. University of the
Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, 1999.

43 | P a g e

Geodetic Engineering Student Handbook

learn how to paraphrase, and how to cite sources, among many


other things.
9. What is meant by destruction/distortion of data?
Data collected in connection with an academic study should not be
altered just to fit a certain trend. For example, when we are
performing experiments, we should include all data that we were
able to collect and include them in the final report.
10. Is it considered cheating if we copy a classmates work, even if it is
homework?
Of course it is still cheating. Anything that we pass as our own
work when it is not, is considered intellectually dishonest. If you

Hymns

UP NAMING MAHAL
U.P. naming mahal
pamantasang hirang
Ang tinig namin,
sana'y inyong dinggin
Malayong lupain,
amin mang marating
Di rin magbabago ang damdamin
Di rin magbabago ang damdamin.
Luntian at pula,
Sagisag magpakailanman
Ating pagdiwang, bulwagan ng dangal
Humayo't itanghal, giting at tapang
Mabuhay ang pag-asa ng bayan
Mabuhay ang pag-asa ng bayan.

INHENYERO NG BAYAN
Kolehiyo ng Inhenyeriya, Unibersidad ng Pilipinas
Taga-linang ng kinabukasan, hindi malilimot
Guro, kawani, kamag-aral, kaibigan,
Maliligayang araw sa isip ay buhay
Gabay at dunong ang inyong handog
Pagmulat ng lahat sa paglikha ng landas.
Inhinyero ng bayan, talino ay alay
Sa ating bansa o sa ibayong dagat man
Asahang mangunguna hanggang sa tagumpay
Pagbabagot pag-unlad, mithing makakamtan
Pagbabagot pag-unlad, mithing makakamtan
