Esri Award Winners

ECCE logo

As part of an Esri Canada Centre of Excellence (ECCE), students who excel in GIS and excel in demonstrating the mission and vision of the aforementioned Centre can be nominated as the student of the year. This Centre is a special designation conferred upon a few leading university departments that challenge students to design and develop custom GIS applications built upon the ArcGIS platform. The Centers exemplify the leading edge in GIS education in which students engage with the entire ecosystem of Esri technology, not just the out-of-the box functionality of standard desktop GIS.
