Certificate in Geographic Information Science (GIS)

The Certificate in Geographic Information Science (GIS) provides training and experience in geographic information science as part of an undergraduate degree program, usually in Earth Sciences, Environmental Science or Biology, and prepares students for further study or employment in the area.

The Certificate requires the completion of GIS-related courses and a pre-approved research project that involves work with geographic information systems and geomatics. Students enrol in the GIS Certificate by contacting the Certificate Coordinator. Students may enrol in their second, third or fourth year of study, but early enrolment is advised.
