To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
This course provides the foundation for GIS students to approach programming problems in an intuitive, realistic and logical fashion. Students use the latest IDEs to develop programs that manipulate GIS data and implement GIS concepts. This course covers such additional topics as arrays, complex data structures and file output.
**IMPORTANT: The final exam must be written at an approved Exam Centre only. Details will be emailed to you after registering for the course or visit https://www.bcit.ca/construction/gisresources/faq/studentspt.shtml for information.
