Select topics, including 3D Analysis and GIS & BIM, Python, Platform Architecture, Development basics, FME and Image Analysis will be covered through speciality workshops.

  • Learning through doing
    • Technical training throughout the programme will be followed by opportunities to 'learn through doing' enabling students to cement learning through relevant and practical exercises and challenges.
  • Industry Exposure
    • The programme will include a site visit to another organisation to showcase the use of innovative Esri technology
  • Business Skills
    • Through applying technical skills in a real-world environment during the course of the programme, business analysis skills, project management and presentation skills will be developed, with short blocks offered on key concepts in a geospatial environment.
  • Hackathon
    • A two day hackathon will be held towards the end of the programme to encourage collaboration, foster creativity and improve development skills, and will provide an excellent opportunity to both build on and showcase skills learnt throughout the programme
  • Project Work
