Geomatics

Geomatics students use a digital total station

Do you enjoy applications of math and computers but hate the idea of being chained to a desk? Then consider geomatics, an exciting field that fuses land surveying techniques with computer technology.

Advancements in technology have changed the nature of surveying and mapping. Today, geomatics professionals use an integrated approach to measuring, analyzing and managing spatial data, employing high-tech equipment like Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), digital photogrammetry, digital total stations, satellite and terrestrial remote sensing to create a detailed but understandable picture of the Earth's natural and manmade features.

About Our Program

At Oregon Tech, the study of geomatics combines theory, problem-solving and field work in a computer-intensive curriculum that prepares students for employment and licensure as Professional Land Surveyors. A shortage of trained personnel makes the employment forecast for geomatics graduates exceptional.

Oregon Tech's geomatics program is accredited by the Applied Science Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, Md. 21202-4012.

Typical Coursework

Geomatics majors typically take courses in:

  • Field Surveying
  • Computer Programming
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • Global Positioning Systems (GPS)

The program also offers coursework in the more traditional areas of surveying, including boundary law, construction surveying and computer-aided drafting.
