We also run a series of summer/winter short courses focused on advancing students' skill-sets in the latest geospatial techniques, topics, and technologies.
The skill-set course sequence at the UMD Center for Geospatial Information Science is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in geospatial information science (GIS) and computational social science (CSS), through intensive training over a short time frame. The skill-set courses provide advanced training in key aspects of GIS and CSS, alongside hands-on lab-based exercises across a diversity of devices, software libraries, exercises, and data environments that emphasize “learning by doing”.
All courses are taught by faculties and staffs in the School of Geographical Sciences and Center for Geospatial Information Science at the University of Maryland, who have extensive experience in building and applying geographic information systems for use in research and professional environments.
Don’t forget to utilize your tuition remission to attend winter courses. E.g. Full-time Graduate Assistants are eligible for 4 credits of tuition remission for Winter Term, and Part-time Graduate Assistants are eligible for 2 credits.
