Geographic Information Science Co-operative Education Program

Program Requirements

Students are strongly encouraged to enroll 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.

Placements for students in the GIS program are made through the university's Science and Environment Co-operative Education Program. Application details are at
