About Our Department

Engineering Technology focuses on practical application of science and engineering. The difference between Engineering and Engineering Technology is engineering technology focuses on application of techniques while engineering focuses on developing concepts. ETSE focuses on a combination of mathematics, computers, hands-on experience, and communication to provide an education that focuses on practical applications, career independence and responsibility.

Surveying Engineering is a rapidly developing engineering discipline that focuses on acquiring and analyzing precise spatial information. Geomatics engineers use a variety of technologies such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Global Navigation Satellite Systems, High-Definition 3D Laser scanners, High-resolution satellite images, and Geographic Information Systems. They measure terrestrial and three-dimensional positions of points on, above, and below the earth’s surface and the distance and angles between them at a high level of precision. Geomatics engineers aid in the design of infrastructure including roads, bridges and legal boundaries for ownership. They provide precise data for natural recourse managers, subdivision developers, and coastal monitoring systems.
