First Sponsors Announced for 2019 National Geomatics Competition in Calgary

The National Geomatics Competition will be taking place in February 2019 at the University of Calgary, in cooperation with the 22nd annual GESS Geomatics Exposition. This year the competition will include student teams from across Canada and is shaping up to a fantastic event for connecting geomatics students with the industry.

National Geomatics Competition  – 22-24, February, 2019

The National Geomatics Competition (NGC) is a student-led consulting engineering competition based in the field of Geomatics. The focus is to bring together students and industry representatives from across the country.

The goals for the NGC are threefold:

  1. Increase the visibility of the Geomatics profession and of the respective programs
  2. Give students the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and talents while networking with potential employers and their future colleagues
  3. Inspire the next generation of Geomatics engineers to work hard, and think big​

None of this would be possible without the help of our generous sponsors! We also thank GoGeomatics Canada for being our Media Sponsor!
