Diploma in

GEO-SPATIAL INFORMATION AND TECHNOLOGY

Geographic Information System (GIS) applications are in great demand nowadays due to many of their value-added services. To generate any recommended solution using GIS applications, there must be accurate data collected by the land surveyors. In addition, the development of many new challenging construction and civil engineering projects also requires a higher level of service from the land surveyors.

 

The part-time Diploma in Geo-Spatial Information and Technology which was developed in collaboration with Singapore Institute of Surveyors and Valuers (SISV) offers graduates the integrated domain knowledge of various surveying techniques and GIS applications with the use of latest technology and equipment.
