The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) option expands upon system development skills through understanding geographic information systems work flows, analysis processes, and data models.
This option is available as part of the Business Intelligence (BI), Enterprise Technology Management, and Web and Mobile Computing specializations. The GIS option addresses how map representations can be abstracted in geo-databases to develop intelligent GIS systems. Learn how GIS can improve efficiencies, decision making, planning, geographic accountability, science-based plans, and communication.
The GIS option is offered in conjunction with the College of Engineering and Applied Science and a certificate in GIS is awarded by the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
