Courses, Programs and Degrees
Central Connecticut State University
Thad J. Dymkowski, GISP, an instructor at Central Connecticut State University, answered a few questions about that school's GIS certificate program, which I mentioned last week.
1. I do not see any mention of programming, though I do see the creation of Web apps in the third course. Is there a programming component?
GIS software (general) is covered in course 1 highlighting all the major companies and organizations on the market, in addition to open source software throughout the program. Course 2 covers open source GIS in further depth and specifics with nods given to QGIS, uDig, and a few others. Because of its prevalence in the industry, Esri is the foundational software used in the course.
