The Postgraduate Certificate in Geospatial Science and Technology (PGCertGST) programme equips students with a foundational knowledge of geospatial science and technology at postgraduate level. It can be a stepping-stone to a professional master's degree or a one year professional qualification.
The programme intersects relevant disciplines such as Data Science, Computer Science, Geography, and Environmental Science with spatial analysis. Students will gain skills in programming, research analysis, database management, geospatial technology, and communication.
A student wishing to study the PGCertGST is required to have completed a bachelor's degree with at least a B Grade Point Average in their 300-level courses in an area relevant to geospatial analysis, or equivalent, or three years of professional experience in a related industry.
Students will be approved by the Academic Dean of Science based on the standard of their previous studies and work experience.
If English is your additional language, you are also required to meet UC's English language requirements.
