Program Information

School:College of the North Atlantic
Faculty:School of Engineering Technology
Degree:Diploma; Co-op
Field of Study:Geological/Geophysical Engineering
Description:Geomatics is a comprehensive discipline that uses arts, science, and technology to gather, store, process, model, analyze, and deliver spatially referenced or location information. It encompasses the fields of geodesy, Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), land surveying, hydrography, mapping, remote sensing (often called earth observation), photogrammetry, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Mainstream technologies, such as Google Earth, smartphones, 3D movies, and self-driving cars, are all based on geomatics technologies.

The Geomatics/Surveying Engineering Technology (Co-op) program prepares students for successful careers in their chosen branch of geomatics. Using state-of-the-art equipment and software, students acquire the skills and knowledge to excel in an ever-advancing industry.
