Specialize your career path - explore geographic science and information systems technology.
The one-year Geographic Information Systems Ontario College Graduate Certificate program provides you with knowledge and skills relating to geographic and cartographic science, with a focal point on information systems technology.
In this program, you use both hands-on and theoretical approaches to explore topics such as:
- field data collection
- remote sensing
- enterprise geo-database design and management
- cloud-based services
- application development
- 2D and 3D cartographic design
- spatial analysis and project management
A key part of this program is the independent project that you begin in your first semester and complete throughout your studies. You identify an area of interest, develop a project proposal, and then implement and complete your project, all in collaboration with an industry or government sponsor.
You also have the opportunity to participate in a paid cooperative education (co-op) work term within the industry and gain valuable experience and contacts for your future career.
