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.

Students also have the option to gain real-world experience through a paid co-operative education (co-op) work term (see Additional Information for more details). Please note that places in the co-op version of the program are subject to availability. Students who elect to apply to the non co-op version of the program may not have the opportunity to transfer to the co-op version at a later date.

  • utility/resource management companies
  • survey/engineering/environmental companies
  • software companies
  • municipal, provincial or federal agencies
