Graduate program options

MEng  |  MScE  |  PhD

Master of Engineering (MEng)

The M.Eng is for students who wish to study one or more fields of geomatics engineering at an advanced level with exposure to new geospatial technologies and a variety of application domains. The course-based M.Eng. consists of 30 credit hours of course work. The degree is designed to be completed in 3 or 4 academic terms, depending on the student's background.

Master of Science in Engineering (MScE)

The M.Sc.E. graduate degree program requires the completion of an approved thesis on original research as well as five graduate-level courses relating to a selected area of specialization and two seminar papers/presentations. The degree is intended to be completed within six academic terms.


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.
