Surveying Engineering and Geomatics
Surveying Engineers or Geomatics Engineers manage the global spatial infrastructure.  They develop systems and equipment for gathering, analyzing, and using information about the earth.  They work with digital mapping and global positioning systems, photogrammetry, remote sensing, as well as more traditional surveying tools.

They work for national government agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service or the U.S. Bureau of Land Management; for national, city, state, or county highway departments; and for large and small engineering and surveying firms.

Preparation
Those interested in a career in surveying engineering should consider reviewing engineering programs that are accredited by ABET, Inc. If you choose to attend a program that is not ABET accredited, you should be sure that the university is regionally accredited. Surveying engineering students take courses such as Engineering Surveying, Surveying Computations, Linear Algebra, Remote Sensing, Geology and Land-Use Management, and Photogrammetry. The following is a list of universities offering a
ccredited degree programs in surveying engineering, which is sometimes called geomatics engineering. Be sure to check with ABET for updates and changes.

Co-ops
Students seeking surveying engineering jobs enhance their employment opportunities by participating in internship or co-op programs offered through their schools. These experiences provide the students with broad knowledge and experience, making them more attractive candidates to employers. Many universities offer co-op and internship programs for students studying surveying engineering. Click here for more information.
