Interns And Grad Students

As part of our mandate with the Nova Scotia Community College, we train the next generation of geomatics researchers through the Centre of Geographic Sciences (COGS). A large part of their training is working with research scientists in the field. The training they receive has launched many graduates on a fast track career in the geomatics field. They are also essential in helping us meet our research obligations.

We welcome all students who are interested in the application of Geomatics technologies to societal issues. If you're interested and have completed an undergraduate degree in any discipline or have equivalent work experience, contact us.

To join AGRG, you will need a practical technical knowledge of either GIS or Remote Sensing. This is available as an Advanced Diploma at COGS, but we will also accept an equivalent.

With skills in at least one Geomatics technology, the graduate can apply for a joint M.Sc. in Applied Geomatics or GI Science, or for an industry internship

Students entering this program will graduate with an Advanced Diploma in GIS or RS from COGS and M.Sc. in AG or GIS over 2 to 3 years. You will attend both COGS and the university.

Many students after graduating from COGS, will complete an industry internship before going out into the work force. This is an excellent project learning environment which gives you a more in-depth understanding of individual technologies and their interaction.

Here are just a few projects our students have worked on in the past.
