First National Geomatics Competition is February 16-19, 2018, in Fredericton

The first ever National Geomatics Competition (NGC) is a student led weekend event happening February 16-19, 2018, in Fredericton, New Brunswick for undergraduate Geomatics students across Canada. 

The competition happening on Saturday February 17 will be styled after a consulting competition, where teams of three will be given a problem dealing with the various aspects of Geomatics. They will then be given 6 hours to come up with a solution that will be presented to a panel of judges.

A conference event will be held Sunday February 18 where speakers will be brought in to present new ideas within the realm of Geomatics. The event will conclude with an awards gala which both the teams and sponsors will be invited to attend. Also, social events will be held throughout the weekend.

Our Vision

  1. To increase the visibility of the profession of geomatics and the respective university programs.
  2. To give students the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and talent while networking with future colleagues and potential employers.
  3. To inspire the next generation of Geomatics Engineers to think big.

Participate By Becoming a Sponsor

The NGC targets the brightest minds coming out of Geomatics engineering programs, people who want to make an impact and create a brighter future. This competition will help prepare them for the changing landscape of our profession.

As a student led, volunteer driven event, the NGC cannot happen without the help of supporting partners. By becoming an NGC partner, you partake in a grassroots initiative which has the vision to grow, and make an impact on students’ education for years to come.
