Geodetic ScienceDoctor of Philosophy

About us

There are three pre-approved MS tracks available:

  • geodesy
  • mapping and geographical information science
  • geodesy and geodynamics

A student with the proper background typically needs three years beyond the MS in Geodetic Science to complete the PhD requirements. Students wishing direct entry into the PhD program with an equivalent MS from another program may need to take some MS-level geodetic science courses in order to fulfill prerequisites for the PhD courses.
