Associate of Applied Science in Geomatics

The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Geomatics prepares students for technician-level employment as land survey technicians or as automated mapping technicians. Those working as survey technicians frequently work outdoors, travel to various job locations, and enjoy an independent lifestyle. Automated mapping technicians work with the latest cartographic techniques and equipment and easily transfer skills learned in geomatics courses to other disciplines.

The program is based on curriculum used in the Bachelor of Science (BS) in Geomatics and transfers credit for students interested in pursuing professional licensing as registered land surveyors.
