Geographic information science (GIS) is a relatively new field that uses computer technology to link maps to digital data. Environmental agencies and resource companies rely on the skills of GIS technicians when they’re making critical decisions about the development and use of forests, fisheries, wildlife and land. If you have good computer skills, a keen eye for detail and an interest in natural resource management and land use planning, the Geographic Information Science program will interest you. Even better, you can launch your career in less than a year. Geographic Information Science is a one-year certificate program offered full time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Prince Albert campus. Some courses are available through distance and/or continuing education. Computer literacy is essential to handling the course load.
