With the proliferation of GIS technology in various fields there is a huge demand for GIS professionals by many companies and government organizations, generally in the Middle East and especially in UAE. However, due to lack of awareness among UAE Nationals about the technology and the opportunities that abound in the field, there is now a huge discrepancy in this field between UAE National and expatriates and today very few Emiratis occupies a GIS or GIS-related position.
GIS Career Forum aims to address this issue and provide a venue for Nationals to learn more about GIS technology and the opportunities and skills needed for a GIS career.
The event will feature a day long introductory workshop on ArcGIS software, a short presentation about GIS technology and career in this field, and an exhibition by government organizations about their GIS implementation programs and GIS career opportunities.
Join us on Jan 13 at UAE University, Al Ain!
