UB to Lead the Way IN GIS Education

Julianne Pasos

The University of Belize Certificate in Geographic Information Systems aims to be the leading programme of its kind in the region and produce highly trained GIS professionals that will guide the continued development of Belize.


Julianne Pasos, Dean of Faculty, Science and Technology

“The professional certificate is a one-year program that gives the person or the student the applications of GIS in different fields and so when they come out of that they also have a project that they need to complete so that they can apply it.  We’re looking for both of these programs actually.  We’re hoping, not hoping I have to say, we believe that the people who will come into the first cohort will be in-service people, people who are currently working in the field who want just that additional training, who need that training in the area and because of that our programs will be offered in the evenings and weekends so that these people can then participate in the programming and benefit from it.”
