Mission & Goals
Prepare students for a profession in Geomatics on a state, regional, national, and international level in public, private, and academic settings. Geomatics is a subset of Geospatial Science and was formerly known as Surveying. But this profession has grown to encompass integration, acquisition, modeling, analysis, and management of geospatial reference data used in civil engineering, cartography, geographic information systems (GIS), geodesy, and remote sensing.
Objectives & Outcomes
- Provide the graduate with a sufficient knowledge and understanding of Geomatics to successfully pass the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Fundamentals of Surveying (FS) exam.
- The Geomatics AS and BS degrees will provide the graduates with full-time entry level employment opportunities in Geomatics. With a jobs to graduates ratio of at least 1:1.
- Develop an academic environment and structure which encourages students to continue pursuit of undergraduate and/or graduate degree(s) in Geomatics or directly related studies. At least 10% of Geomatics majors will graduate and go on to graduate school in Geomatics or directly related field of study.
- The Geomatics Advisory Board will provide a Programmatic Review every two years.
