The B.S. in Geospatial Information Science and Technology (GIST) will allow you to
combine proficiency in spatial thinking and geospatial data science analysis with
fluency in geographic information systems, remote sensing, data analytics, and visualization.
Once you complete the degree, you will be prepared to apply your geospatial knowledge
and skills in a wide range of fields, from environmental management and public health,
to civil engineering and urban planning, to economic analysis and marketing.
Looking for a way to add geospatial expertise to your resume? 9-10 credit certificates
in GIS or remote sensing give you paths for gaining geospatial experience to enhance
your prospects in the job market while teaching you skills that you can apply to any
major. The GIS certificate includes courses in GIS software and analysis, spatial
data visualization, and programming to give you foundational skills in these important
subjects. The remote sensing certificate teaches you how to analyze and extract information
from digital images and you can explore specific remote sensing applications and platforms,
including drones, with targeted elective courses. WyGISC also offers many undergraduate
GIST courses for students interested in specific aspects of geospatial science.
