MU’s GIS certification program

Topics: GIS Geographic Information Systems

Hong He has observed that many students tend to be drawn to MU’s School of Natural Resources because of their desire to be outdoors studying wildlife in forests and woods. One of He’s goals was to bring students back into the classroom by building up their knowledge and skills with GIS and spatial analysis. Owing to He’s efforts, MU now has both a successful GIS certification program at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
