Remote Sensing and GIS Proficiency
The Remote Sensing and GIS Declaration of Proficiency program is open to UNO students from any major (including non-degree students), both graduate and undergraduate. It provides instruction in a number of areas involving cartography, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and remote sensing.
These courses are designed to be taken in a logical sequence (i.e., 4805 – 4830; and 4810 - 4820). Please plan your course schedule accordingly. To help you with charting out your educational experience, the following list of certificate requirements contains an indication of the semesters during which courses are typically offered (F- Fall; S-Spring).
A minimum grade of "C" has to be achieved in order to have a course count towards proficiency. At least 75% of the courses must be taken at UNO. In the case of courses taken at other institutions, you should write a letter to Dr. James Lowry describing the course in question (include a syllabus or similar information). This should allow the techniques faculty to judge the appropriateness of that particular course.
If you are a non-degree student who already has an undergraduate degree you can enroll either as a non-degree undergraduate or non-degree graduate. The most significant differences are that graduate students have a larger workload and that those considering enrolling as a degree-seeking graduate student at some point in the future may want to take the courses at the graduate level so they may count towards that future degree.
