:: Career Prospects

 

Geomatic engineering is a broad discipline. Some graduates join companies specializing in land management and development and become Licensed Land surveyors - the only people to perform surveys for land titles. Many join organizations that operate on a broader front in geomatics engineering, working in areas including land and resource management, environmental remote sensing, surveying for engineering construction, surveying to detect structural deformation and hydrographic surveying for dredging operations. Graduates with an interest in geographical information systems have found employment with corporations with an interest in mapping and/or management of urban engineering facilities, cultural resources or fleet control.
