Integrated Geospatial Technology—MS

Geospatial engineers use new and developing technologies such as GPS, UAV and satellite imagery, laser mapping, and fast computing to create complex layers of interconnected geographic information. Are you ready?

Our Accelerated Master's Program is available for current Michigan Tech students. Online Master's Program.

Program Overview

There is a large and growing need for engineers and scientists with advanced training in the geospatial technologies. In particular, there is a recognized need in different disciplines to gather, analyze, and interpret geographically referenced spatial information and data. The master's in integrated geospatial technology program provides an optimal combination of education and training in geospatial science and technology to students who wish to join the geospatial workforce.

Accredited by HLC

Michigan Tech has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) since 1928. Our Graduate School offers over 125 certificates, master's, and PhD programs to provide our students and the world with what tomorrow needs.

Who You'll Work With

Our faculty are well-known in their fields and have funded research projects with such organizations as the DOD, EPA, and NASA. Many graduate students work on faculty-led research projects in addition to carrying out their own research in geospatial technology.

Faculty members have been appointed to directorial and commission president positions in the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS), International Federation of Geodesists (FIG), and American Congress of Surveying and Mapping (ACSM).

Where You'll Work

GI Scientists lead research and development efforts at geospatial software development companies, government agencies, and in universities. Key government agencies involved in geospatial research are: NGA, USGS, NASA, US DHS, NOAA NGS, EPA, DOD, DOE, DOJ, and others.

Geospatial engineers and scientists are responsible for using geographic data that supports military/civilian operations for disaster relief and Homeland Security. They collect, analyze, and distribute geospatial information to represent the terrain and its possible effects.
