CCL Applications in Geospatial Technologies
Academic Plan Code
Applications in Geospatial Technologies Track III: Transfer Emphasis
The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Applications in Geospatial Technologies program provides a solid foundation in Geographic Information Systems concepts, not simply GIS software. This program equips students with fundamental GIS abilities that can be applied in a variety of environments where spatial data analysis is required.
Track I: Technician
Track II: Analyst/Developer
Track III: Transfer Emphasis
Course Sequence by Term
The following is a suggested course sequence by term for the pathway. Students should keep in mind the items below that affect their success in completing the pathway as listed:
- The course sequence is laid out by suggested term. It is understood that students may enter the program at different times of the year.
- Academic achievement is related to initial course placement determined by course placement tests, completion of 100-200 level course pre-/corequisites, any courses below 100 level, and program prerequisites.
- Students should meet with an academic advisor, or program director, or counselor who can assist in assessing student needs that may affect course enrollment. Appropriate resources can be discussed and agreed to in order to address student needs and support successful course completion.
