Students from the Faculty of Porto FCUP accompany Viamapa, which offers work opportunities!
With almost 20 years of existence, Viamapa is a Portuguese company based in Greater Porto, specialized in topography services. It covers several activities related to measurement, but four main areas of activity are highlighted:
- Topographic surveys
- Hydrological studies
- Aerial Cartography
- Mobile cartography
The Faculty of Sciences ofthe University of Porto (FCUP) is one of the oldest faculties of the University of Porto. Science and technology coexist in order to respond to the great challenges of world society.
In the context of a collaboration with the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto and Viamapa, a study visit to the Port of Leixões was made with the students of the 1st year of the Master in Geographic Engineering. This was a way for students to have a concrete idea of the possible applications of their studies... And what better way than being directly in the field with a Viamapa professional in topographic engineering and bathymetry!
In addition, the dredging site is still underway, so the students were able to see the extent of the work in real time, try out the equipment, perform the work methodology, from calibrating the devices, to measuring the speed in the sound of the water and even acquire data for future processing.
In this sense, Viamapa thanks all the students from the university who participated in this visit, as well as, the teachers. It is with great pride that our teams can transmit their knowledge and show their work to today's young people who represent the future of Portugal and the country's economy in general.
We have several job vacancies in various areas and this will only get better in the coming years, recruitment is constantly evolving, and this is a good sign for the inhabitants of Porto, Douro Valley, Vila Nova de Gaia, Lisbon among other Portuguese cities.

Hydrographic works in Portugal
Every year Viamapa teams carry out several works in the fields of hydrography and bathymetry. All the fields of application of our knowledge are presented on this page.
During this visit with the students, the construction work was in the spotlight. But what does this work involve?
Viamapa provided hydrographic survey (HS) services for the breakwater expansion project. In particular, by supporting the world's largest dredger, we will improve maritime access to the port.
This project aims to create conditions to improve the safety and navigability of the access roads to the port, making the area more suitable for manoeuvring large ships.
Bathymetric surveys carried out by our team are carried out regularly and are used to verify the extent of the main breakwater with high resolution soundings.
Viamapa's main function is to acquire topographic data of the seabed to enable the planning, programming and execution of maritime works. To perform this service, we have a vessel equipped with a high-resolution multibeam sonar. You can find details of the work explained by our engineer here.
