Geodetic Science Master of Science

About us

There are three pre-approved MS tracks available:

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

Each of these tracks has a thesis option (plan A) and a non-thesis option (plan B). In order to develop a broad perspective of geodetic science, a student in each track is encouraged to take cross speciality courses in topics of the other tracks. A student with the proper background usually needs one to one and a half years to complete the MS requirements; the thesis option may take longer.

Optional Practical Training (OPT)

International graduates of this major are approved by the Department of Homeland Security for three (3) years of work permission in the United States after graduation. Visit the Office of International Affairs website for more information.
