Geomatics and Surveying Engineering Technology is a diploma program. It provides knowledge and skill development in using science and technology for collecting and using geographically referenced data. Geomatics involves the location and mapping of natural and man-made physical features, and property and other boundaries. This information is required for resource development, infrastructure projects (such as roads and pipelines) and all types of industrial, commercial, public and private construction projects.

The term “geomatics” includes the more traditional and well known fields of surveying and mapping, and a number of topics related to collecting and managing geographic data that are based on new technologies. Data is now collected in the field using electronic survey instruments and satellite receivers, derived from aerial photographs and satellite imagery, transferred electronically, manipulated in computers using specialized software and displayed with Geographic Information Systems and as digital maps. The Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists’ (CCTT) Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) accredits the program at the Technologist level.

Selected courses for this program are available through Continuing Education distance and/or on campus learning. The program is available full-time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Campus in Moose Jaw. For complete program information, check the program page.

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) and transfer credit may be options for receiving credit. For further information see the PLAR page or the transfer credit page.
