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.
There are two ways to pursue a master level graduate study in Geomatics Engineering. For those interested in a specialized, focused curriculum of Geomatics Engineering, application can be made through the School of Civil
Engineering at http://eng.purdue.edu/CE/Academics/Graduate. For those with an interdisciplinary
background, the application can be made through the Purdue Engineering Professional Education program at
