Geomatics Engineering

Geomatics engineering is a varied and exciting technology discipline that leads to careers having a great indoor/outdoor balance. It requires a combination of design, computer, and measurement skills with field work, lab experiments, and computer modelling to solve a variety of problems that have a common attribute: spatial location.

Geomatics is a profession that is in growing demand both in Canada and internationally. Exciting careers exist in both the private and public sectors. In the private sector, geomatics engineers work in small to medium enterprises or large multinational corporations with global opportunities such as Google, Microsoft, Apple, Trimble, Shell, Encana, ESRI, NASA, Altalink and others. In the public sector, geomatics engineers are in demand in government agencies (e.g., Natural Resources Canada), colleges and universities.

The goal of the Department of Geomatics Engineering is to provide students with a high quality education that is guided by innovative research and practical applications. The strengths of the department lie in the international recognition of its degree program excellence, its strong linkages with industry and government agencies, and its undergraduate internship program.
