School of Applied Technologies (AT)


Students will study Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and related geospatial technologies including satellite-based mapping systems, remote sensing, and land survey. Practical, lab-based applications are emphasized. Both the certificate and degree options are offered as stand-alone choices for the student. Students who complete the GIT degree may choose to enter the work force or continue their education at a 4-year institution. Students pursuing the certificate of completion may choose a GIS or Surveying Concentration. It is critical to meet with an advisor or program Chair to design your academic schedule as some courses may be offered only in certain terms.

The surveying concentration is appropriate for students who wish to adapt their geospatial skills to surveying applications. Students who complete this certificate concentration are eligible and encouraged to take the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) Level I Technician exam.
