Geomatics engineering is a very fast-growing information technology discipline, which employs location and navigation systems, intelligent and autonomous systems, mobile mapping, geospatial information systems, integration of detection-and-localization sensors, smart infrastructure, artificial intelligence for geospatial solutions, remote sensing of the natural and built environments by satellite and unmanned aerial systems, virtual reality, geodesy and surveying - to name a few.
Geomatics engineering leads to exciting and lasting careers in the geospatial industry, aerospace and automobile autonomy, biomedical engineering, natural resources, land surveying and many other areas. Geomatics engineering students acquire skills in collecting, visualizing, modelling and analyzing geospatial data, engineering design, digital imaging and computer modelling to solve a variety of problems that have a common attribute - spatial location. Geomatics engineering students experience extensive hands-on learning of the newest geomatics technologies.
This is the only geomatics engineering degree in Western Canada and is recognized by the Canadian Board of Examiners for Professional Surveyors and the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.
