Faculty of Geodesy - Technical University of Civil Engineering Bucharest
The Faculty of Geodesy has an important tradition in the geodetic engineer education in Romania, which began in Bucharest in 1818, at the St. Sava School under the leadership of Gheorghe Lazar, in Romanian language. On the campus of Lacul Tei Blvd., Geodesy has been operating as a specialty since 1955, and in 1990 it became a faculty. The faculty has three departments: the Department of Surveying and Cadastre, the Department of Geodesy, Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and the Department of Physics. The research activity is conducted within the Research Center for Geodetic Engineering Measurements and Spatial Data Infrastructures (MGDIIS) and Research Center for Spatial Geodesy, Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and GIS (GEOS).
Bachelor degree programs are focused on:
· Surveying and Cadastre Measurements
· Geodesy and Geoinformatics
· Cadastre and Properties Management
Master degree programs are organized on three specializations:
· Information Systems in Cadastre and Real Estate Registration
· Spatial Planning and GIS for Sustainable Development

FIG - International Federation of Surveyors
FIG is the premier international organization representing the interests of surveyors worldwide. It is a federation of the national member associations and covers the whole range of professional fields within the global surveying community. It provides an international forum for discussion and development aiming to promote professional practice and standards. FIG was founded on July 18 1878 in Paris by delegates from seven national associations - Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Spain and Switzerland - and was known as the Fédération Internationale des Géomètres. This has become anglicized to the International Federation of Surveyors. It is a UN-recognized non-government organization (NGO), representing more than 120 countries throughout the world, and its aim is to ensure that the disciplines of surveying and all who practice them meet the needs of the markets and communities that they serve.
FIG’s technical work is led by ten Commissions. The responsibilities and work plans of Commissions are approved by the General Assembly during the FIG Congress. The work of each Commission is lead by the Chairperson – elected for four-year term of office by the General Assembly at the Congress. He is assisted by the Commission Vice-Chairpersons also appointed by the General Assembly. The Chair-Elect is elected by the General Assembly two years before the Congress. The Commission Chair is also assisted by a Vice-Chair of Administration who is in charge for the administration of the Commission. Every Commission has established at least three working groups on special topics.

FIG Commission 6 - Engineering Surveys
The mission is to:
- Promote the knowledge, skills and abilities of surveyors in civil and industrial works within the various professional fields of engineering.
- Support all development and multidisciplinary expertise leading to integrated survey methods, using various instruments (geodetic, geotechnic, fast motion) and sensors and combining geometry with all other data relevant to each engineering problem.
- Provide a forum for exchange of knowledge related to engineering analysis of survey data for the study of structures.
- In addition to the links with related WGs of IAG, ISM and ISPRS, look for possible cooperation within these organisations and support the co-operation of civil, structural and mechanical engineers with our profession.
- Participation with ICOLD (International Committee on Large Dams) national committees.
- Participation on the FIG Standards Network on standardisation policy, support the standardisation activities at the international, local and national level, and development of standards and method statements.
- Participation on regional FIG events, and events organised in co-operation with sister organisations.

FIG Commission 10 - Construction Economics and Management
The mission is to:
- The promotion of the practice of QS/CE and PM/CM globally.
- The promotion of “best practice” for QS/CE and PM/CM globally.
- The promotion of dialogue between member organizations engaged in QS/CE, and PM/CM.
- Fostering of research appropriate to the better understanding of building practice around the world.
- The promotion of cooperation among FIG Members organisations involving QS/CE and PM/CM for their mutual well-being and that of their individual members.
- The advancement of QS/CE, PM/CM, by education and research and continuing professional development.
- To secure uniformity in education, standards and methodology by QS/CE, PM/CM throughout the world.
- To facilitate and assist in development of formal education framework and competencies in the profession of QS/CE or PM/CM among member organisations that may not have a formal education or professional development in QS/CE or PM/CM.
- To achieve the above mission objectives, FIG Commission 10 will collaborate with other international or regional organisations such as RICS, ICEC, PAQS, CEEC, AAQS, PMI and other similar organisations.

Romanian Surveyors Union (UGR)
Romanian Surveyor Union (U.G.R.) is a professional, independent, non-government and non-political organization, with a non-working character. It was established in 1990 through the initiative of geodetic engineers. One of the RSU objectives is to increase the prestige of geodesy and professional authority of surveyors. The RSU sustain and protect the professional and economic interests of its members, while presenting and promoting the importance of surveying activities. RSU initiate and propose laws regarding the surveying activities and surveyor role. Today RSU counts almost 1.100 members, organized in 47 local associations. Romanian Surveyors Union is member of FIG.

Romanian Association of Private Surveyors (APCGC)
Romanian Association of Private Surveyors (APCGC) is an autonomous, non-governmental, non-profit legal entity established in 1995 on the basis of the field of activity. APCGC members (147 as of November 2016) are companies that perform works and provide services in the field of Geodesy (Geodetic Reference Networks), Cartography (Maps and Derivatives), Cadastre, Topography, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (aerial image acquisition and exploitation), Engineering surveying, Spatial Information Systems (GIS), and other related fields. APCGC is a full member of UGIR 1903, national representative organization, International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), Council of European Geodetic Surveyors (CLGE) and Fédération des géomètres francophones (FGF).

National Agency of Cadastre and Land Registration (ANCPI)
NACLR is a Governmental organization, being affiliate to FIG. The institution is coordinating the surveying activity in Romania, having in its subordination the Offices of Cadastre and Land Registration (OCLR) from each county and Bucharest. NACLR represent the only authority on cartography, cadastre and Land Registration, which sets policy in specialized field, strategy and development regulations, and harmonization of specific activities within the general policy of the government and take steps to implement those policies through subordinate institutions. NACLR has the mission to regulate and manage the Integrated System of Cadastre and Land Registry in order to ensure the safety of property and civil circuit support economic growth of Romania.
