UAS Operations and GIS Image Analysis Departmental CertificateThis program is available at the Beavercreek and Springfield - Leffel Lane locations.
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) along with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have been identified by the U.S. Bureau of Labor as high growth industries. With this in mind, the UAS Operations Plus GIS Certificate is designed to provide the technical background necessary to begin a successful career in UAS operations and data handling.
This certificate is designed for those students who seek to enhance their job-related skills in becoming a UAV operator with the ability to manage and analyze data products. This certificate is one year in length in order to develop foundational skills and knowledge necessary for the workforce.
Students enrolled in the UAS Operations Plus GIS certificate may already have an Associates or Bachelor's degree; however, this program is also an entryway for more traditional college-age students. Coursework included in a certificate program may ultimately be applied for the associate degree in the related technology program, GIS/Geospatial Technology. Down the curriculum sheet for this major.
