Study Spatial Science

Due to a rapid growth in the spatial science sector, there is increasing demand for employees with skills in managing and analysing location-based data to solve local through to global scale problems.

Our Graduate Certificate in Spatial Science will equip you with the practical and critical problem-solving skills necessary for understanding and applying Spatial Science technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) software.

Similarly, you can learn how to collect unique data sets using drones, access online global earth data and apply spatial analysis techniques to a broad range of environmental and social problems by studying our Graduate Diploma in Spatial Science.

Designed for those without an engineering and/or advanced mathematical background, you can study both programs 100% online, and apply the practical skills and knowledge that you gain to upskill or change your career path.
