Canada's leading geomatics training centre

Why study geomatics?

Geomatics professionals help make sense of the world around us by collecting, analyzing, interpreting and presenting geographic data.

Technological advances have made it possible to streamline this data into educational, usable and valuable information that can improve lives. Whether it’s mapping health trends, monitoring pipelines across oceans, positioning satellites or tracking how endangered species interact in the wild, geomatics can be applied to almost any industry’s area of business.

Globally, there are more jobs than graduates, so you can expect many employment opportunities.
