The University of Florida’s Certificate in Geomatics is a course of study that is offered through an entirely online format. This undergraduate level degree program is offered through the university’s College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, and administered under the School of Forest Resources and Conservation. This program is intended for surveyors and mappers in training, new graduates, or working professionals interested in a career in the field of Geomatics, and specifically in the areas of surveying, mapping, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and photogrammetry.
This is may be an ideal time to pursue a Certificate in Geomatics, as job opportunities in geomatics are expected to grow nationally due to increased geographic information technologies, land-based activity, and an increasing rate of retirement of existing professionals. The University of Florida has created this program specifically to answer this increased national demand for Geomatics professionals. The program’s curriculum is designed to be diverse and thorough, consisting of five courses, or 15-credit hours. Two of these courses are required of all students, and cover the topics of Geomatics and Survey Computations. The remaining three courses can be hand-picked by the student, tailored to their personal interests and professional goals.
