Spatial Information Systems Program
The Spatial Information Systems (SIS) program at the UA-M School of Forest Resources, will provide graduates (the drivers) to meet the growing demand for a geo-technology workforce. It is projected that there will be numerous opportunities available for graduates with expertise in the areas of Geographics Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and land surveying.
The program provides students with a choice of two academic opportunities. The Spatial Information Systems (SIS) program leads to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree and is a mixture of general education, computer based Geographic Information System (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Digital Photogrammetry (DP), and land surveying courses. The student has the option to concentrate in GIS or land surveying. In addition, students may select to pursue a two-year Associate of Science (A.S.) in Land Surveying Technology. The A.S. degree is a mixture of general education and land surveying courses.
