Description

Geomatics engineering technologists provide technical support and services to engineers, architects, scientists, and other professionals. The Geomatics Technology program combines practical skills with the knowledge of land and construction surveying. You will study both land and construction surveying, digital mapping, photogrammetry, cartography, remote-sensing and global navigation satellite systems. The program provides opportunity for you to gain work experience in relevant industries through two co-op work terms.

You must register in and successfully complete Year 1 of Civil Engineering Technology. You can then enter Geomatics Technology in Year Two after your first six-month work co-op.

In the Geomatics Technology program, you take more advanced courses and build on the competencies you gained in your first year. The focus is on application and design. Courses include subjects such as:
  • Roadway design
  • Geomatics computer applications
  • Digital photogrammetry
  • Remote sensing
  • Geographical Information Systems
  • Theory and use of survey instruments
  • Advanced survey computations
  • Astronomy
  • Control surveys
  • Legal surveys
 
An applied technical project is incorporated into the final year.

The Certified Technicians and Technologists Association (CTTAM) has partnered with Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba (EGM) to create the Specific Scope of Practice License (Eng. L.).

As a certified Engineering Licensee, you will have the opportunity to practice engineering or geoscience within a limited scope of a specific discipline, even if you do not have an engineering or geoscience degree. With your RRC Polytech engineering technology diploma, you will need at least 5 years of work experience before applying (8 years total, includes schooling).
