Certificate in Geographic Information Science (GIS)

Estados Unidos



¿Qué aprenderé?

The GIS post-baccalaureate certificate enables students to focus on advanced geospatial techniques and analytical skills. This certificate meets the needs of the expanding job opportunities for Masters’ and Ph.D. students. Students must be admitted to an SIUC graduate program or the SIUC non-declared graduate program and maintain a 3.0 GPA in the certification courses. This certificate ensures that the students understand advanced mapping technologies; know how to combine individual models and functions in ArcGIS to carry out a complicated spatial analysis task; master advanced digital image processing and analysis technologies; and obtain competence in designing, developing, and managing spatial databases. Further, they will demonstrate an understanding of GIS’s relationships with remote sensing, global positioning system (GPS), mathematics, statistics, and other sciences and obtain capacity in integrating multi-disciplinary methods for problem-solving. Finally, they will be competent in planning, developing, and implementing a complex GIS project. The program requires students to complete 18 credit hours of graduate level coursework from the following:

GEOG 502: Geographic Information Systems (3 CH)

GEOG 504: Spatial Analysis (3 CH)
