A degree in geomatics engineering allows a graduate to enter a highly specialised career field that focuses on land surveying, environmental infrastructure development and other areas geared to develop spatial data about the world. This career field is relatively new, having begun in 1969 according to the engineering department at the University of Calgary, and utilises some of the most modern technology available to science to compile data.

Purdue University

Purdue University's department of civil engineering carries several programs in geomatics engineering, including an undergraduate minor in land surveying, a master's degree in geomatics engineering and a doctoral program in geomatics engineering. The programs educate a student in global resources and environmental infrastructure, providing basic elements of the discipline for undergraduates and expanding on a graduate student's areas of interest at the master's and doctoral levels. Graduate and doctoral programs are also flexible to enable students to work with faculty to conceive a curriculum that meets professional goals.
