The Geospatial Certificate Program provides foundational concepts and methods in GIS, remote sensing, and cartography that are transferable and relevant across disciplines and industries. The classes are offered online through the College of Extended Education & Global Engagement and face-to-face classes. Students can also complete an Advanced Geospatial Certificate which includes five additional courses in intermediate and advanced geospatial topics.
The Advanced Geospatial Certificate builds on the foundation of the Basic Geospatial Certificate, teaching advanced geospatial methods and techniques, and giving students the skills to create professional maps and advanced remote sensing techniques. Elective courses allow the student to delve deeper into GIS, cartography, or remote sending or to learn to automate GIS tasks with programming. This certificate program prepares students for geospatial analyst and geospatial specialist positions.
