Geomatics and Surveying Engineering Technology

Diploma

Program Overview

Computers have reinvented the way we see our world. Surveying and mapping have evolved into geomatics—a growing field that uses satellite receivers, electronic survey equipment and computer software to map natural and man-made physical features, property boundaries and more.

If you’re interested in geography and exploring the world around you, if you like working with computers and high-tech gadgets and if you have a detail-oriented, analytical-type mind, Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Geomatics and Surveying Engineering Technology program will appeal to you.

The Geomatics and Surveying Engineering Technology program is a three-year diploma offered full time at the Moose Jaw campus. You’ll take five academic semesters and participate in two Co-operative Education work terms.

You’ll develop knowledge and skills in the collection, storage, manipulation, analysis and retrieval of geographic data. You’ll learn how to:

  • Collect spatial data in the field using electronic survey instruments and satellite receivers.
  • Derive data remotely from aerial photographs and satellite imagery.
  • Analyze and manipulate aerial photographs and satellite imagery using specialized software.
  • Display and use Geographic Information Systems and digital maps.

You’ll learn from experienced instructors on leading-edge technology. You’ll participate in survey field camps, conduct applied research and apply your skills to hands-on projects.

The Co-op Work Term Advantage

Co-operative work terms are paid, so you’ll earn while you learn. Saskatchewan Polytechnic arranges your interviews; it’s up to you to shine. It’s a chance to develop important “soft skills” in job interviewing, professional attitude, interpersonal communication and more.

Diploma to Degree

Use your diploma to ladder into a technology degree at BCIT in British Columbia or a technology degree at Memorial University in Newfoundland.

Career and Salary Information

Your Career

Geomatic technologists are in high demand. Your first job will likely be as a field surveyor in an urban or remote environment. You could also work in an office using field data, aerial photographs and satellite imagery to create computer-based maps and drawings and more.

Potential employers include surveying, mapping and geomatics companies; engineering consulting firms; mining companies; public utilities; telecommunication companies; municipalities and government departments (highways, infrastructure, environment, etc.).

Special Admission

Applicants who do not possess the academic qualifications for a program may be admitted if evidence of probable success can be established through a special admission assessment. Interested individuals should still apply. Applicants are automatically considered for special admission. However, some specific admission requirements may still need to be met. Refer to the ACCUPLACER© cut scores for this program below, and review additional details concerning Special Admission.

Admission Method

First Qualified/First Admitted

The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements, you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program. The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application, once qualified, is always considered for the next intake. 

Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year. 

Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.

See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.
