Back to Geomatics Engineering


Candidates for the Ph.D. degree normally hold a master's degree in geodesy and/or geomatics. For some research fields, consideration will be given to applicants whose previous degrees are not in geodesy and/or geomatics, but in appropriately related disciplines. The Ph.D. is a research degree for which a dissertation on original research is required.

Completion of five graduate-level courses in the area of the selected major, two courses in the area of a selected minor, and two seminar papers/presentations are also required. Following acceptance, a program of study is laid down by an appropriate supervisory committee for each candidate. The degree is intended to be completed within 12 academic terms.
