Geospatial engineering includes surveying, mapping, remote sensing, and other similar activities. Geospatial engineers use precise global positioning system (GPS) receivers to establish horizontal and vertical coordinates.
They also participate in the design and implementation of geographical information systems (GIS), which are geographically-based computer databases.
Why become a Geospacial Engineer?
The Geospatial Engineering graduates are expected to attain the following Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) within a period of 3-5 years after graduation.
(heading) Our graduates will be professionals who:
PEO 1: Pursue engineering and management careers in the civil engineering industry and related fields.
PEO 2: Maintain competency via continuing education and graduate studies.
PEO 3: Work with paramount consideration for the safety, health, and welfare of the public, obtain professional licensure, and actively participate in professional societies.
PEO 4: Practice locally, regionally, or internationally, integrating the broader political, economic, legal, environmental, and societal impacts of projects in their decisions.
The Student Outcomes are based on the standard ABET a-k outcomes.
a: Apply Knowledge - An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
b: Experiment Analysis - An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
c: System Design - An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
d: Teamwork - An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
e: Problem Solving - An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
f: Professionalism & Ethics - An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
g: Communication - An ability to communicate effectively
h: Global Impact - The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
i: Life-Long Learning - A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
j: Contemporary Issues - A knowledge of contemporary issues
k: Engineering Tools - An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
