Program Overview

The Geographical Information Systems (GIS) program is designed to prepare students with the skills and knowledge required to enter the geospatial technology workforce. GIS workers prepare digital maps and data using modern GIS tools and software. Students will learn to operate GPS receivers, surveying equipment and GIS software, such as ESRI ArcGIS™.

Careers in GIS technology include engineering firms, surveying companies, law enforcement, wildlife management, public utility, and local/state/federal governments. Students may optionally learn to fly and operate Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), commonly called “drones." The UAS certificate adds the latest technology skills to prepare graduates for high-paying and satisfying careers.
