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.
