The National Geomatics Competition, at Université Laval in March 2023
March 10, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - March 12, 2023 @ 10:00 pm
The National Geomatics Competition (NGC) is a student-led consulting engineering competition in the field of geomatics. Our focus is to bring together students, academia and industry representatives from across the country.
The goals for the NGC are :
- Increase the visibility of the geomatics profession and of the respective programs in Canadian universities
- Connect industrial knowledge with students’ skills and academic research
- Learn and contribute to this fast-growing sector
The NGC hosts teams of undergraduate students from schools all across Canada. These teams are presented with a problem dealing with various aspects of geomatics, and must come up with a solution to the problem. The teams present their solutions in front of a panel of judges, consisting of industrial and academic experts in the industry. Social activities, technological demos and conferences on the most recent updates from the industry are scheduled throughout the weekend.
