Students with a previous degree or proficiency in specific areas may be exempted from certain courses but at least 50% of the courses in the program must be taken at SFU to fulfill the requirements of the certificate. British Columbia is an international leader in developing SIS products, applications and research. The installation and maintenance of the SIS lab as a state of the art facility has allowed SFU to feed this growing industry with qualified individuals who have learned the fundamentals of spatial information systems.

The B.Sc. in GIS is offered though the Faculty of Applied Sciences in partnership with the Department of Geography and the School of Computer Science. The program combines the theoretical, practical and intellectual issues surrounding the use of Geographic Information System technologies. Graduates are exceptionally well qualified to contribute to a rapidly growing industry. They learn how to model data effectively; how to visualize those models using computing graphics; and how to program in object environments. SFU students are encouraged to participate in Cooperative Education to experience these and other career opportunities.
