Remote Sensing and Earth Observation Program

Remote Sensing and Earth Observation Certificate Program

The Graduate Certificate in Remote Sensing and Earth Observation is designed for GIS practitioners who lack formal education in the technologies and methods associated with remote sensing, image analysis, and terrain modeling. The program explores theory and techniques for the effective use of remote sensing in a wide variety of geospatial applications, such as the environment and energy, water and other natural resources, agriculture and forestry, urban and regional planning, transportation and infrastructure management, defense and business intelligence, homeland security, and emergency response. This 12-credit, four course online certificate program boasts a curriculum that addresses the theory, methodologies, and techniques for the professional application of remote sensing in geographic information systems and analysis. Completing this certificate will empower you to leverage data gathered from aircraft, satellites, and drones. You’ll also learn to use computational methods to automate the analysis of earth observation data and integrate those skills into a GIS workflow.

Students who subsequently apply and are accepted to our Master of GIS Program program may count the 12 certificate credits toward the degree. Our remote sensing certificate program can also help qualify and prepare professionals for additional credentials issued by GISP, ASPRS, and USGIF.
