Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this thesis is to describe and analyse the current and future requirements in land administration based on emerging land issues in Botswana. With the information gained from this investigation an evaluation and quality control were conducted to see if the University of Botswana (UB) keep the standard required from the industry and society. Since Botswana is under a major land reform there is a serious need for educated people in Land Management and Geomatics, if they will be able to maintain the new cadastral system. This creates a huge pressure on UB, who is the only one providing this kind of education in Botswana, to provide high quality in their programmes. The methods used are qualitative and quantitative in form of a case study with interviews, questionnaires and observations. A literature review with previous scientific research in these subjects was completed to gain information that was needed to succeed with the project. The results from the literature review and the case study highlights important areas that affect the quality in education such as teachers, motivation, environment and equipment. All target groups (students, academic staff and employers) had similar opinions, which are that the competence seems to be more important than the theoretical knowledge, among the students. These results are supported by previous scientific research presented in the literature review. As we see it, UB has come a long way but there are some important parts that have to be improved e.g. the mind-set of the students, increasing the equipment and the access of teachers to provide the assistance that the students need. A future investigation of the negative and positive aspects of providing great allowances to students can be interesting when this can be one of the main reasons of the poor mind-set among the students.
