Geographic Information Science Co-operative Education Program
Students are strongly encouraged to enrol in co-operative education. Geographic information science students will be in great demand while still completing the program. The number of co-op posting requests exceeds the supply by a large margin. Co-op employers are actively seeking students with broad GIS skills, especially programming, database management, and statistics, in addition to substantive knowledge in geography and resource management.
Placements for students in the GIS program are made through the university's Science and Environment Co-operative Education Program. Application details are at http://www.sfu.ca/coop/programs/env/home.html.
