The name of the University of New Brunswick's Department of Surveying Engineering has changed to the Department of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering.

Geomatics is a newly coined term for the multitude of engineering fields into which traditional surveying and mapping has developed: geodetic surveying; property and boundary surveying; ocean mapping; remote sensing; geographical information gathering, storage, display, and dissemination; cartography and map making; mining surveying; photogrammetry; and digital mapping.
