About the Program

The Geomatics certificate is a two-semester program that addresses the fundamentals of land surveying and geomatics (modern surveying practice with the application of the Geographic Information System (GIS) and Global Positioning System (GPS).

Students are eligible to enroll in the Geomatics Program only after the basic Civil Engineering Technology entry requirements are completed (the same requirements to enter the CET degree program), and any prerequisites for the individual courses within the certificate program are met. The certificate will meet the needs of students seeking to acquire a thorough introduction to general land surveying and GPS and GIS practices commonly applied in the current workplace, as well as those who intend to pursue a two-year degree.

Certificate curricula are reviewed and updated periodically in response to community and industry demands. The student is cautioned to discuss certificate choices and course selections with an Engineering Advisor before each registration cycle.

Learning experiences for students in Engineering Technology programs are provided at the Northeast Campus in classrooms and state-of-the-art labs in the Engineering Technology and Science Classroom Building.
