Geodetic Control Networks Field Course - Göd (BSc)
The field course is held in Göd, a village some 20 km north of Budapest.
The field course is 6 days long. Students will gain experience in the planning and establishing geodetic control networks.
In order to be able to attend the field course, one should take the following accessories:
- rain gear (raincoat, boot)
- normal trousers (not only shorts), because the field is covered with bushes
- cap, sun screen (not to get a touch of the sun)
- shoes (Students are not allowed to attend the course in slippers!)
- Calculator, pen, pencil, paper, ruler etc.
Please note, that the university can not provide the students with these accessories.
The field course is held from June 5 to June 10. Students must arrive to the camp until 10 o’clock on June 5 (See the Travel section for more details), and the departure is planned to be until 15 o’clock on June 10. Students arriving later than the prescribed time will be required to leave the camp, and repeat the field course next year.
Breaking the field course
Since the extent of the field course has been taken into account during the determination of the examination period, therefore students are generally not allowed to break the course into two parts, or skip certain days due to exams, or other programs.
Cancellation of the field course
If a student does not attend the field course without a prior notice to the lecturer, he/she is required to pay an extra fee for the repetition of the field course in the next year. Field course can be attended only once a year.
Students are accommodated in the camp of the University free of charge. The rooms are usually dormitory rooms with 3-6 beds. Linen is included in the accommodation. Showers with warm water are also available in the premises, however everyone should use his/her own towel. Breakfast is not included in the accommodation, see Food section for more details.
There’s a possibility to order lunch for the whole duration of the field course. The daily price of the menu is 700 HUF, and must be ordered at least one day in advance. There are two restaurants close to the camp as well, where students can have an a'la carte lunch.
You’ll have time to have a lunch in these restaurants, too.
