Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)

Applied Geomatics (AG)

Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics, College of Social and Applied Human Sciences

The minor in Applied Geomatics offers students with expertise in the science and application of geospatial tools including Geographic Information Systems (GIS) (e.g., ArcGIS, GoogleEarth), remote sensing (e.g., extracting information from satellite images), and Geographic Positioning Systems (GPS). Although students learn fundamental underlying science, the focus of the minor is on the application of these spatial technologies. The program of studies has been designed to be complementary with a wide range of Majors and disciplines on campus, including the ability to select from a wide range of restricted electives, so that students can learn how to apply geomatics to their primary area of expertise.
