Geomatics Engineering Minor
This program is available at the following location:
Prepares individuals to apply scientific and mathematical principles to the determination of the location, elevations, and alignment of natural and manmade topographic features. Includes instruction in property line location, surveying, surface measurement, aerial and terrestrial photogrammetry, remote sensing, satellite imagery, global positioning systems, computer applications, and photographic data processing.
Minor Code: 013
Upon successful completion of the program, students will meet the following learning outcomes:
- Operate standard field surveying equipment such as automatic and digital levels, total stations, and Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) units.
- Recognize the benefits and limitations of different data acquisition tools and techniques.
- Understand error theory and be able to evaluate surveying blunders, systematic errors and random errors.
- Apply and understand the basics of geodetic reference frames and datum realizations.
- Navigate and interpret common and statutory laws pertaining to land surveying.
- Develop and interpret legal property descriptions used to define and locate property ownership boundaries.
Some of the courses required for the Geomatics minor have additional prerequisites or grade requirements that are separate from the minor. To earn the minor upon graduation, students must earn a C or better in each of their minor courses (all courses must be taken A–F grading).
