Master of Geospatial Information Science and Technology
The MGIST program equips students with the knowledge and tools to become geospatial professionals through a unique curriculum that leverages NC State’s strengths in computational and data sciences and interdisciplinary training, in combination with professional skills development. The degree was designed to be completed entirely online, allowing flexibility for both students just entering the work force and those already established.

Graduate Certificate in Geospatial Information Science
The graduate certificate provides students with a graduate level academic credential in advanced GIS applications. This program is designed for students who wish to establish themselves in GIS practice, enhance current skill sets or are not yet ready to commit to a full graduate program. The certificate can be completed entirely online and is also available to current NC State students enrolled in a non-GIS graduate degree.
