Help transform our world as a Geomatics Engineer
Want to help create smart cities and find solutions to current real-world issues like COVID-19 tracking and autonomous driving?
Geomatics Engineering might be the right career pathway for you.
Geomatics is a field that collects geospatial data about the world around us and uses tools like land surveying, remote sensing, GIS systems, geography and computer science to help digitize the world.
This knowledge and data can then be used to decide where buildings, roads and houses are built, power the technology of self-driving vehicles, assist in emergency and disaster management and much more.
The skills you learn will give you the tools and experience you need to have a successful career that will contribute to making a positive change in the world.
“Geomatics Engineering has empowered me to lead the building, organizing and reshaping of our world. My industry is constantly evolving and I am always looking to incorporate new developments in Geomatics into my career”David'19 Geomatics Engineering
“I love Geomatics because of the endless applications it has to the real world, such as digital modelling and self driving cars. It is perfect for me because I get to combine my passion for coding with the ability of staying physically active, working on a project in the outdoors!”LexGeomatics Engineering Student
