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.
Complete the following:
- Your primary Specialization (BI, Enterprise Technology Management, or Web and Mobile)
- Introduction to Geographic Information Systems, CE5381 (take this course as your Information Systems elective)
Choose three of the following:
- GIS Spatial Data Development, CVEN5382
- GIS Analyses - Theory and Practice, CVEN5383
- GIS Management and Policies, CVEN5384
- GIS Relational Database Systems, CVEN5385
- GIS Laboratory, CVEN5386
- GIS courses are offered online and can be completed concurrently with the information systems courses.
- Students will be able to register for the classes on the Web. There are not any special registration requirements.
- Students need to notify the graduate advising office at the Business School (303-315-8200) prior to graduation if they are planning to complete the GIS option. Students also need to indicate the completion of the coursework when they submit their online intent to graduate form.
