Program Overview 
Cutting-edge GIS training prepares students to apply geographic information systems technology skills to solve real-world problems.  Whether you’re determining the best location for a new store, analyzing environmental damage, or viewing similar crimes in a city to detect a pattern, GIS plays a vital role in today’s toughest spatial challenges. GIS students receive applied instruction from professional practitioners who work in the fields they teach as they learn to plan, implement, and execute a geographic information systems project and learn skills in GPS, remote sensing, internet mapping, or digital image processing. Students  will explore GIS fundamentals at a very hands-on, applied level necessary to succeed in the field, plus learn the contextual background of GIS. From the management of natural resources to public utility management, public works engineering, environmental impact assessment, and even market research, students will learn the diverse fundamentals of each topic within the GIS industry and gain an insider’s perspective to specific fields as they each relate to geographic information systems. University College offers the region’s first complete graduate certificate program in geographic information systems. Since the advent of GIS over 50 years ago, Colorado has become “Geotech Alley” leading the nation in GIS activity and development. This master’s degree and graduate certificate program is highly regarded due to its curriculum and faculty, state-of-the-art labs, and the fact that the skills and strategies you learn in class are immediately applicable.
