Geomatics Engineering What is geomatics?
Geomatics is an interdisciplinary field of research that combines aspects of surveying, sensor technology with data processing, geoinformatics and geomodelling.
The main focus of Geomatics lies on the regulation and control of the interplay between resource extraction and its environmental impact.

Having excellently trained experts in the field of Geomatics is nowadays more important than ever. The reason for that is the continuously rising global demand for raw materials, which leads to the extraction of mineral resources in areas of the geosphere that are more difficult to access. Simultaneously, the highest levels of safety as well as environmental and social regulations need to be fulfilled, and the optimal use of natural resources by maximizing recovery is desired. This requires engineers to be able to develop new innovative solutions, making the best use of most modern technology to acquire, manage and analyze geodata.
