The undergraduate geographic information science and technology (GIST) certificate provides you with a background in the science, techniques, and application of geographical methods and technologies.  

You’ll learn more about geospatial technologies, including geographic information systems (GIS) for integrating and analyzing spatial data, remote sensing (RS) using satellite or airborne sensors to acquire spatial information, and computer mapping (CM).  

You will get hands-on practice with these and other methods of interfacing with spatial data. You’ll also be able to choose from several advanced courses to fine-tune your certificate to suit your personal interests and career goals in areas such as web GIS, geomorphology, unmanned aircraft systems, and more. 

This program is ideal if you’re an undergraduate student or non-degree student seeking advanced knowledge in geospatial technologies. Upon completion of the GIST certificate, you’ll have useful skills for a wide range of careers or for further academic studies in the field of geography.
