GIS & Remote Sensing Certificates

Geospatial knowledge is in high demand with employers and is particularly important in energy development. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing technologies are used throughout the energy industry including:

  • Siting new generation facilities including wind farms and solar arrays

  • Establishing routes for transmission and distribution lines

  • Assessing social and environmental impacts

  • Creating energy resource market scenarios

  • Monitoring assets including pipelines and power lines

With the addition of under 12 credit hours, students can add an undergraduate certificate in GIS or remote sensing. Download our flyer to learn how these certificates work with the Energy Resource Management and Development program. The Wyoming Geospatial Science Center hosts the program.
