What is the program of study like?

After you complete all eight courses in the first-year common core, you choose a specific program of study.

In the geomatics engineering program, you will learn about:

  • estimation
  • geodesy
  • geospatial information systems
  • land tenure
  • photogrammetry
  • hydrography
  • surveying
  • remote sensing and positioning

You also have the opportunity to attend a two-week field camp to become familiar with equipment and geomatic techniques.

Students in geomatics engineering benefit from smaller class sizes. Classes usually don’t exceed 60 students, which encourages a closer relationship between faculty members and students.
