Tailoring a Geomatics Curriculum to Prepare Students for Professional Licensing and Success in the Workplace
The Geomatics Technology Program at Idaho State University was tailored to meet the challenge of creating a four-year Geomatics Technology curriculum that provides graduates with the necessary tools to succeed in the workplace and gain professional licensing. The curriculum was developed based on our two-year Civil Engineering Technology program with input from government, industry, and local professional land surveyors. This paper discusses the program's mission, structure, curriculum, and components and student involvement in a variety of real boundary or public land surveying projects. These projects are classified as case studies or capstone projects. The program also offers a noncredit preparation course for the State Board Examination to obtain a land surveyor-in-training certificate.
