Certification Concept of GIS & GPS (CCG)- The GIS certificate at UMPI is aimed to bring modern GPS and GIS technologies to students of all the majors and to local communities. A two-semester GIS sequence is offered, ENV308-Introduction to GIS (GIS I) in the spring, and ENV408-GIS Applications and Advanced Spatial Analyses (GIS II) in the fall.Students in GIS II work on real GIS projects to earn hands-on experience. For example, they collect municipal infrastructural data with Trimble GPS and build GIS geodatabases for the local cities/towns. Some of them work as paid interns in the summer. GPS/GIS technologies help students meet higher academic standards and to achieve successes in their job hunting and their professional careers.
