Geomatics Engineering

Undergraduate Geomatics Engineering Degree ֱ

What is Geomatics Engineering About?

Geomatics is a new term incorporating cutting edge technology in image processing, digital photogrammetry, remote sensing, satellite-based global positioning, geographic information systems, drone based mapping, laser scanning, surveying and digital mapping. In addition, geomatics engineering can involve work in land development, construction surveying, forensic surveying, hydrographic surveying and spatial data analysis.

Career Outlook

Employment of geomatics engineers is projected to grow up to 15% from 2018 to 2028. Surveyors will continue to be needed to certify boundary lines, work on resource extraction projects, and review sites for construction. The geomatics engineering field is much more than just surveying, it includes geographic information systems, geospatial intelligence, photogrammetry, mapping, geodesy, remote sensing and reality capture using the latest imaging technology.

Overall job opportunities are expected to be excellent because the average age of professional licensed surveyors nationally is over 50, and those with knowledge of a variety of surveying specializations and a bachelor’s degree from an ABET-accredited school will have the best job opportunities.
