Environmental Geoscience and Geomatics (EGG)
Providing opportunities for the study of earth system processes and computer-based spatial analysis using Geographic Information Systems and satellite imagery.
Students in this degree program are combining two exciting and dynamic fields of study; geosciences and geomatics. Geosciences is concerned with the natural and human-induced forces shaping our planet. Geomatics, which involves the science and application of geospatial tools such as GIS and remote sensing, is a core component of the rapidly growing information sector. Graduates of this program will apply their expertise to a number of applications in agriculture, forestry, transportation, fisheries, mining, and often work as environmental consultants.
Beyond the Classroom
Students in the Department of Geography can participate in the Geography Society and the Environmental Science Society. Student societies organize special events throughout the year, including trips, parties, and career nights. The Geography Society has its own room in the Hutt Building, which provides a place for members to meet, to study, and to plan events.
Geography graduates are pursuing exciting careers across Canada and around the world in consulting firms, government agencies, non-government organizations, and the teaching profession. Many graduates of our programs have pursued graduate studies.
