Geographic Information Science - Certificate

GIS technologies are applied to wide-ranging fields with interests in spatially distributed information such as transportation, environmental/resource management, marketing, facility management, healthcare delivery, agriculture and planning. In addition, the synergistic linkages between GIS and Remote Sensing (RS) technologies are increasing. The need for qualified individuals in these fields is growing rapidly. The GIS certificate program has been designed to meet this demand.

The Office of the President has approved this program, and it will appear on the official Texas A&M University transcript. There will also be a paper certificate. This certificate is administered through the department of Ecosystem Science and Management and taught jointly with Geography.

This certificate program has been designed to meet the growing demand for qualified individuals in the field. For more detailed information please contact a graduate advisor in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management or Geography, or visit the program website.
