|Remote Sensing (RS) Certificate Description|
The Graduate Certificate in Remote Sensing (RS) is administered jointly through the Departments of Ecosystem Science and Management and Geography. The program has been designed to meet the rapidly growing demand for qualified individuals in the field of RS technologies.
Remote Sensing (RS) technologies are applied to wide-ranging fields such as environmental and resource management, marketing, facility management, agriculture, urban planning, homeland security and intelligence. In addition, the synergistic linkages between RS technologies and geographic information systems (GIS) are rapidly increasing.
The Office of the President has approved this program, and it will appear on the official Texas A&M University transcript. The certificate requires four courses (12 hours), including an introductory, two advanced, and one elective course. Students are expected to maintain a 3.0 GPR for all applicable coursework.
