Geomatics engineering is an emerging field
that encompasses the evolution of theories and technologies in land surveying. 'Our graduates run the gamut,'says Dr Charisse Griffith-Charles, Head of the DGELM, 'from becoming cadastral, hydrographic, and engineering surveyors, to land and geographic information systems managers, to land administration and land management professionals.'
This year, the DGELM celebrates40 years of existence, and in that time, has grown to become an essential department within UWI St Augustine’s Faculty of Engineering.
