Students Earn GIS Certificate
UHMCM News Release
University of Hawaii Maui College, Molokai (UHMCM) is proud to announce that in the Fall 2014 semester, four of our Agriculture students successfully earned a certificate in Geographic Information System (GIS) in Ecosystem Management. These students are Kristen Coelho, Patricia Pali, Kawaila Purdy and Tyson Pactol.
To earn this certificate, students must pass the Introduction to GIS as well as GIS in Ecosystem Management. Both classes required the students to collect an intense amount of localized geographic data through a computerized software and use the data for in-depth analysis, planning and mapping.
GIS is a useful skill in today’s world and frequently used in many careers.
“I want to continue on the path of GIS,” said Purdy.
Job well done to these students!
