The Geographic Information Science and Geospatial Surveying Engineering Programs at Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi offer the premier Geomatics and GIS undergraduate, graduate, and post-baccalaureate degrees in the United States. Our degree programs provide students with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities required by today's highly competitive and highly paid geospatial job market.
Our degree programs enable students to apply both scientific and mathematical principles to model the Earth. Our students are trained to gather geospatial data via land surveying and convert this data, along with other data resources, into manageable maps and databases for display and analysis. A career in the geospatial industry is a student's opportunity to explore the world and utilize the latest computer technologies and sciences. In addition to a number of careers in the geospatial industry, all graduates are eligible to take the licensing examination for Surveyor in Training (SIT) and, ultimately, Registered Professional Land Surveyor (RPLS).
