Graduate Certificate in Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
Geographical Information Systems (GIS) allow us to capture, manage, query, analyze and model geospatially referenced data. GIS ties the idea of location to information, making it possible to visualize it all in map form. Our certificate program provides students with a solid grounding in geospatial theory and techniques, combined with the practical skills to apply these techniques to real world problems. Students are exposed to a combination of industry standard software and open source programs in classes that encourage an extensive hands-on approach.
