College of Engineering, Design and Computing
The Geomatics Engineering and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) graduate program at the University of Colorado Denver provides broad-based expertise and cutting-edge skills that span the growing geospatial field and helps alleviate the shortage of well-educated geospatial professionals.
The program is intended for engineers and other geospatial, environmental and urban infrastructure professionals seeking skills in using and managing rapidly developing geospatial data technologies.
Our Geomatics and GIS curriculum covers a wide range of geospatial principles. Students learn from industry professionals in areas of surveying, geodesy, mapping science and cartography, GNSS and GPS, photogrammetry, remote sensing, high-definition surveying and relational GIS databases.
Our program prepares graduates for careers in industry and/or science. Students who complete the program have a comprehensive understanding in these disciplines, empowering them to advance their careers in geospatial engineering and analysis or to continue
their research and further advance the science.
The online Master of Science (MS) in Geomatics and GIS is designed for engineers who are seeking a master's degree with a focus on GIS and civil engineering. The MS requires a bachelor's degree or equivalent in engineering from an accredited college or university.
The master of science degree requires a minimum of 30 credit hours, which includes nine courses and 3 credit hours for an advanced master's report or master's thesis.
