Online M.S. in Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Elmhurst College
Online Part time August 2019 USA Elmhurst

The M.S. in geographic information systems from Elmhurst College will give you in-depth knowledge of the geospatial field and introduce you to spatial thinking and geographic information systems (GIS) as a tool used in a variety of applications in the industry. [+]

Map Out Your Future With an Online Masters in GIS!

Geospatial technologies affect almost every aspect of life, from navigating an unfamiliar neighborhood to tracking patterns of diseases in populations. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, geospatial technologies is one of the three high-growth industries of the 21st century. That translates into big opportunity—and with an Elmhurst M.S. in GIS, you’ll be well-prepared to meet it.

Elmhurst has something most colleges don’t—a dedicated GIS server and access to professional Esri GIS software. So you’ll get something most students won’t: high-end processing power from a regular computer.

Curriculum

The master of science in geographic information systems at Elmhurst requires the successful completion of 10 courses for a total of 7.50 credits (30 semester hours). The program also fulfills the educational requirements of the GISP (certified GIS professional). The curriculum will develop geospatial skill sets in correlation with the Geospatial Technology Competency Model (GTCM) as defined by the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Geospatial Technologies Center of Excellence (Geo Tech Center). AGS 500 may be waived, per the program director's discretion, for the following students:... [-]

Master of Mathematical Engineering (Leuven)

KU Leuven: Faculty of Engineering Science
Campus Part time 1 year September 2019 Belgium Leuven

Without mathematical tools, there would be no internet search engines, no weather forecast, no security in banking. Mathematical models and techniques play an important role in automatic pilot technologies, the design of quieter cars, the optimisation of wind farms, medical scanners, etc. At first sight, these applications have little in common, but they all process a large amount of data. Mathematics is becoming critical in many applications because of increasing model complexity and higher demands from customers and the environment. [+]
