This program provides opportunities for study of the processes and properties of the biophysical environment and a core foundation in the analytical techniques (i.e. Geographical Information Science and Remote Sensing) used for their interpretation, analysis and presentation.
Graduates of the program will have unique specialty in the application of spatial technologies to the study and assessment of biophysical and Earth surface processes.
Combine physical geography and field research with computer-aided spatial analysis (e.g., geographic information systems; aerial and satellite image analysis) to study the natural and human-induced forces that are shaping our planet. You will be equipped to assess and address the impacts of natural hazards on society such as flood-plain mapping and emergency management, human impacts on environment (e.g., water pollution and watershed management); and how natural systems are changing due to climate change (e.g., mapping of invasive species).
Also available in co-op.
The Co-op program in Environmental Geomatics is a five year program, including four work terms.
Note: A minimum of three Co-op work terms including a Summer, Fall, and Winter are necessary to complete the Co-op requirement. *A fourth Co-op work term is optional and if completed, the total number of credits will equal 22.00.
