Geographic Information Science Student Organization (GISSO) is a student group composed of GISc and GSEN students. The goal of the group is to promote education in the fields of GIS and Surveying. Throughout the year, the students participate in fundraising and volunteer events. The group meets weekly at the Conrad Blucher Institute to discuss upcoming events and brainstorm ideas.
The GISSO List-Serv is heavily used by students, faculty and alumni. This list is primarily used for event announcements, job/internship announcements, meeting updates and University announcements.

The Geospatial Systems Engineering Graduate Degree Program will provide students with knowledge and skills focusing on the research, design, development, and use of technologies in geospatial systems engineering. The program builds upon the ABET accredited undergraduate Geographic Information Science program (GISc) and the existing geographic information science concentration in the master’s program in computer science. The program satisfies the regional, state and national need for master’s-level graduates in geospatial systems design and surveying engineering. Due to the diversity of geospatial applications in industry, the 36 credit hour program is purposely designed to offer breadth in the course work. To be considered for admission, all applicants must have a GRE Score on file with the Graduate Office, and a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 1.0 to 4.0 GPA scale.
The Post-Baccaluareate Certificates in Geomatics and Geographic Information Systems are designed for students who hold at least a bachelor's degree in fields other than Geographic Information Science. Students who obtain a Certificate in Geomatics will be eligible for the Surveyor in Training (SIT) and Registered Professional Land Surveyor (RPLS) board examinations. Students who obtain a Certificate in Geographic Information Systems will be versed in applications, software design, and analysis techniques vital for a career in the geospatial field.
