Geomatics Engineering

Geomatics engineers manage global geospatial resources and infrastructure. They design, develop, and operate systems for collecting, analyzing, and utilizing geospatial information about the land, infrastructure, the oceans, natural resources, and the environment.

In Civil Engineering's Geomatics Engineering emphasis area, you will have the opportunity to study property boundary determination, digital mapping, geodesy, geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), land information management, photogrammetry, and remote sensing. The Geomatics faculty are dedicated to effective teaching and cutting-edge research.

Geomatics Engineering at Purdue offers the following academic programs:

Minor in Land Surveying. Visit for more information.

Masters degree. Visit for further information and application.

Ph.D degree. Visit for further information and application.

The master level graduate study in Geomatics Engineering is also made available through distance learning. There are two ways to pursue this masters degree. For those interested in a specialized, focused curriculum of Geomatics Engineering, application can be made through the School of Civil Engineering at For those with an interdisciplinary background, the application can be made through the Purdue Engineering Professional Education program at
