The SDSU Certificate in Enterprise Geographic Information Systems at Bootcamp GIS
With organizations across the globe increasingly relying on location intelligence to make better decisions, the Geographic Information Systems industry is projected to grow from $9 billion to $18 billion in the next six years. In this tech sector, standard college courses are not meeting the demand for marketable skills at the intersection of IT and geography — including Cloud, mobile, database, and programming.
