The Advanced Diploma program in Geographic Information Systems is designed for students with a background in a related discipline or technology. The program is available in a full-time, nine-month program format, or through Part-time Studies. The curriculum combines theory and practice and covers GIS principles, training in GIS software, technical issues, remote sensing, digital mapping and management issues. Students must also successfully complete a supervised work experience before graduation. This may be either an industry project or an industry practicum.
