Admission

Refer to 3.1 Admissions.

Required Courses – Geomatics Engineering, Regular Program

1Except for students in the Cadastral Surveying Concentration and in the Software Engineering Minor, students may request Department consent to substitute either Engineering 501 and 502, or Engineering 503 and 504 for Geomatics Engineering 500 if they meet the prerequisites for Geomatics Engineering 500.

2The complementary studies course Engineering 213, or Communications Studies 363, or Strategy and Global Management 217, is a co-requisite for Geomatics Engineering 401. Students must complete the course before or during the fall term of their third year.

Required Courses – Geomatics Engineering, Regular Program - Polytechnic Transfer Pathway
