About the Program
Brock University and Niagara College have teamed up to develop a Concentration in Geomatics.

Sub-disciplines of geomatics include:

This program is designed to include both theoretical and practical knowledge that provide students with a variety of career and post-graduate opportunities in:

- GIS analyst/consultant
- Map design and production
- Municipal, provincial and federal governments
- Tourist industry
- Urban planning
Students apply to the collaborative program at the end of their first successful year of study at Brock. A minimum 70% average is required to be considered for admission, but please note that reaching this minimum does not guarantee acceptance.
