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.

If you have a passion for:


  • Coding
  • Space
  • Satellites 📡
  • Actively working outside
  • Land surveying
  • Hiking
  • 3D- Modelling
  • Navigation and Positioning
  • Web App Development
