Description

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
  • programming
  • 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.
