Diploma in Geographic Information System Technology – Geographic Information System Technology (GIST) is an information technology field of practice that acquires, manages, interprets, integrates, displays, analyses, or otherwise uses data focusing on the geographic, temporal, and spatial context.

Beside that, application of GIS in Malaysia is on the increasing trend especially in the environmental management field, urban planning, logging, health application matters, and petroleum. More over, GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts.

Furthermore, this course will allow students to answer questions and solve problems by looking at the data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared. GIS technology can be integrated into any enterprise information system framework. Hence, the Diploma in GIST Program aims to produce graduates in the field of geoinformatics to support the needs in handling various geospatial-related developments of the country.
