Learn by doing
In the bachelor’s program in géomatique appliquée à l’environnement, students must work on real-life situations submitted by regional county municipalities, organizations, businesses, or citizen associations from Estrie. Each year, tens of businesses or associations call on the knowledge of future geomatic professionals to tackle a problem related to the physical, human, or economic environment.
The team members invest a total of 540 work hours per project and make recommendations to the organizations. The mandate can also be a geomatic study or project related to sustainable transport and mobility, or land development.
To be eligible, a project must meet certain benchmarks (market analysis, site selection, environmental impact analysis). For the complete criteria list, contact the supervisor.
Examples of projects
- Maps of habitat potential for waterfowl in forested Quebec.

See the Project List carried out in recent years.
The team of students take on the project free of cost, but the company must assume the follow-up costs of the project.
The project themes vary depending on the trimester.
- Fall: Geomatics Studies
- Winter: Land Use Planning
- Summer: Sustainable Mobility
Projects must take place in the Estrie region.
