Earn a nanodegree at Udacity to enhance your geospatial skills

Previously, we’ve discussed how you can advance your geospatial career with Coursera.

For us geogeeks, it would benefit us in these ways to enhance our skills.

More diverse skills are needed

As we have been building the Geospatial Job Portal, we have seen an increasingly diverse set of desired skills for those wanting to work in the geospatial industry; it’s much more than just being proficient in a specific software! As seen in another study, engineering has become more prominent and geography has been deemphasized. 

There are more ways of applying geospatial than ever

In case you haven’t noticed, there are so many exciting startups coming up all the time! From using artificial intelligence, augmented reality, blockchain, the geospatial industry is constantly evolving, as we can also see from our GeoTrends series. If anything, it would make sense to learn more skills to not get left behind!

Our GeoTrends series invites experts from the industry to discuss the latest trends and developments

Getting a Nanodegree at Udacity

Nanodegrees at Udacity offer a good balance of time commitment and completing the nanodegree with tangible and on-demand skills. With each nanodegree taking about 6 months with 10 hours of work per week, course participants can still work full-time while being enrolled in the program. However, some courses have some prerequisites so you may need to touch up on some basic programming or math skills before enrolling.

With a $399/month or $1436/4 months price tag, it is slightly more expensive than some MOOCS, but still more affordable than paying for an on-site or online bootcamp (plus the possibility of having to temporarily relocate to another city or having transportation costs associated with physically having to be in a classroom). If you are looking to learn a new skill, get feedback to improve, and build a portfolio, Udacity could be the solution for oyu.

The nanodegrees offer the followng:

  • Content co-created with industry partners
  • Real-world projects
  • Project feedback from experienced reviewers
  • 1-on-1 technical mentor
  • Personal career coaching
  • Interview preparations
  • Resume services
  • Github review
  • LinkedIn profile review
  • and more
