CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

GIS/Geospacial Technology

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0224  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

Geographic Information Systems and Geospacial Technology combines computer technology, mapping technologies, aerial photography, and satellite imagery with the most current environmental resource management and environmental analysis software.  Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technicians work with computer drafting, design, database management, graphic design, and computer analysis.  Environmental technology requirements include a working knowledge of natural systems and related regulations and their assessment, planning, restoration, and management.  GIS technicians are employed with engineering and design firms, state and federal agencies, environmental firms, parks and recreation departments, and with municipalities and local government units.  Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

 

PREREQUISITES
Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for skills assessment and advising information.
