Surveying & Geomatics Engineering

Surveying and Geomatics Engineering is an exciting field that offers the student the ability to use the latest technology in the office and outdoors in a small class environment. Geomatics Technology uses modern ground aerial and satellite technologies and computers for data processing.

The demand for surveyors has never been greater and the new Geomatics Technology program at Idaho State University offers students several ways to get into this exciting and rewarding field. First, you can test the waters by enrolling in the two-year Civil Engineering Technology program and get the field skills you need to get a job. Continue classes for the next two years, earn a bachelor in science degree, and get the advanced education and training that you need to work at the professional level. You may also pursue registration as a Professional Land Surveyor, or start your academic career directly in the B.S. program.

Ph.D. Engineering and Applied Science

The Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering and Applied Science allows for a broad range of research topics in Engineering and Computer Science (Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Environmental Science and Management, Measurement and Control Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Nuclear Engineering including Health Physics), Chemistry (Biochemistry, Atmospheric, Environmental, Materials, Inorganic, Organic, Organometallic, and Physical Chemistry), Geosciences (Geology, Geophysics, Geochemistry, Environmental Geosciences), Mathematics (Applied Mathematics and Computational Mathematics), and Physics (Radiation Science, Accelerator Applications, and Applied Nuclear Physics).

For complete information about this program, consult the current ISU Graduate Catalog.

M.A. in Historical Resources Management

Offered since 2005, the MA in Historical Resources Management trains students to explore established and emerging historical problems.

The curriculum integrates traditional and interdisciplinary approaches to historical research with the development of digital and other professional skills needed to complete digital and other applied historical research projects.

Students take courses in historical methods, digital history, research methodology, and professional development. An MA in Historical Resources Management prepares students to use their historical, digital, and applied training in a variety of teaching, research, and other positions, including museums, consulting firms, non-profit organizations, government agencies, or further graduate study for academic careers.
