My name is Mykhala Penney and I am an ECCE Student Associate for the Centre of Geographic Sciences (COGS), enrolled in the Post-Graduate Advanced Geographic Sciences Program. Before COGS, I attended the University of Toronto where I completed a specialist degree in the field of geography, environmental science and GIS. After deciding that I wanted to expand my knowledge in the field of GIS I chose to attend COGS for its learning platform. With a wide-range of specialized courses (both practical and theoretical), COGS provides the opportunity for you to choose a diploma concentration in GIS, GIS for business, or remote sensing. Also, many opportunities exist to get involved with local research groups, participate in field work and to complete a capstone project and portfolio to showcase your skills.

I intend on continuously updating my page with research progress, updates, tips and insight to the world of GIS. Stay tuned!
