The Next Generation.
In the 16th century, Magellan set out to explore our world by sailing around it.
In the 21st century, geomatics engineers are taking things to the next level.
It’s all about better understanding the space we live in. Geomatics engineering has transformed the way we look at global navigation and urban planning.
Imagine inventing apps to help today’s Magellans navigate ships across the ocean (and find the nearest coffee shop). Or think about working on driverless cars that will lead to the elimination of gridlock.
Geomatics engineers are in huge demand, both in Canada and around the world. We’ll help you get the skills you need to land a job in this booming field.
What You’ll Learn
Geomatics Engineering blends the knowledge of science and engineering with information technologies to solve complex, real-world problems. The diverse issues tackled by the field range from tracking a vehicle’s location within a city to determining land use from a satellite image.
Geomatics engineers focus on the science and technologies related to positioning and navigation, sensors, measurements and mapping, as well as on spatial awareness and intelligence.
We will get you started with the basics in geomatics, surveying and mapping, navigation, sensors, and measurements to assist in building a strong foundation in the discipline.
In your third and fourth years, you will have the chance to take Field Survey courses. You’ll learn and use advanced state-of-the-art instruments while putting your professional skills to the test.
To top it off, the co-op program after second year allows you to gain professional experience, giving you a head start towards becoming a licensed Professional Engineer.
Our Geomatics Engineering program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).
