Geospatial Information Science (GIS) is used in many fields that work with the built environment, among them urban and regional planning, the design disciplines, and architectural or landscape history. GIS professionals in planning and design fields are best trained by a thorough education in one or more of these disciplines together with an immersion in the theory and methods guiding GIS.
The GIS Certificate aims to instill a culture of interdisciplinary collaboration through coursework and engagement with the community. The College of Architecture and Planning has a unique opportunity to establish collaborations spanning multiple departments and campuses of the University, including:
- Landscape Architecture
- Planning and Design
- Civil Engineering
The Certificate also builds upon the extraordinary depth of the GIS community in Colorado and the interdisciplinary teaching and research occurring at the Facility for Advanced Spatial Technology (FASTLab) at the University of Colorado Denver.
The Certificate is currently undergoing revision. Contact: Mike Hinke by email.
