Geocomputing at Mount Allison is an applied program that combines theory and practice of computer science and geography (joint major), offering students new tools for understanding the world.

The program provides students with the valuable skills and knowledge to solve pressing environmental problems such as minimizing environmental impacts and identifying critical habitat.

Geocomputing students take introductory courses in environmental science, environmental studies, and computer science with spatial computing (geographic information systems) at the heart.

In their final year, students complete an applied capstone project that integrates both fields.
