About the Department

The department of Geomatics is currently focused on qualifying Geomatics Engineers, although plans are underway to introduce Geographical Information Systems as an alternative programme. A Geomatics Engineer is responsible for all measurements essential for planning, construction (setting-out and monitoring) and management of man-made structures such as roads, bridges, tunnels, dams, buildings, power-lines etc. Some graduates of this department may find employment in Cadastral Surveying, Mining Surveying and Remote Sensing.
