In a Digital World...

... a career in GIS can take you where you want to go.

Environmental Management. Land Use Planning. Engineering. Natural Resource Management. Transportation. Real Estate. Utilities. Business and Marketing. Mineral Exploration. Health and Social Services.

The list goes on. The potential uses of GIS technology are numerous and diverse, and are found everywhere - from local government to the United Nations, from community organizations to global corporations, in the public and private sectors.

Geospatial technology use is growing at a rapid pace around the world and exciting opportunities for well educated and trained people are increasing.

Whether you are a recent university or college graduate getting started in a career, or an experienced professional seeking new employment opportunities or career advancement, we invite you to explore our programs and courses to learn more.

The Advanced Certificate in GIS is designed for a person with a full-time career, (e.g. engineer, urban planner, retail analyst), who needs to add some GIS knowledge to their existing skill set, but not be a major component of their job. After completion of the Advanced Certificate, there is an opportunity for the person to take either the Advanced Diploma or the Bachelor of Technology in GIS.

The Advanced Diploma program in GIS is aimed at university or college graduates who seek an intensive technical education that will prepare them for a career in GIS.

The Bachelor of Technology in GIS covers the same courses as the Advanced Diploma, with additional studies in management and liberal arts, and includes a GIS work experience. The BTech in GIS is a degree completion program for those with an associate degree or college diploma who need a baccalaureate education.

Our GIS courses can be completed in either a full-time or part-time format. All part-time courses are available through online learning.
