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.

The PGCertGST includes three compulsory courses on spatial analysis technology and programming, and students may choose their final course from a selection of topics such as data management, modelling, communicating data findings, and specific uses of GIS such as within the Health, Forestry, and Natural Resources industries.
Students must complete these compulsory courses:
GISC 402 GI Science Research
GISC 404 Spatial Analysis
GISC 412 Spatial Algorithms and Programming
Students are required to complete an optional 15-point course from topics that include data science, statistics, computer programming, and digital business and technology. These can be selected from Schedule E to the Professional Master of Geospatial Science and Technology.
