Pennsylvania, USA, 21 June 2007: Penn State has developed a new online certificate programme in geospatial intelligence. The five-course, 14-credit post baccalaureate programme,.is a combination of remote sensing, imagery capture, geographic surveying, and geo-political analysis.
The course for the program is a virtual field experience. It will require students to problem solve a crisis situation modeled after real world experiences-complete with unexpected curve-balls thrown in by the instructors.
Penn State’s Geospatial Intelligence Certificate program is the first online program of its kind in the nation. The certificate requires less than two years to complete, and is set to launch in Fall 2007. More information is available at: http://www.worldcampus.psu.edu/geo
