Course Description

Geospatial Tech Applications I

This course involves the presentation of two integrated teaching modules that focus on the application of geospatial technology to forest and wildlife management. The first module includes the application of geospatial technologies to the integrated management and monitoring of forest land. The second module utilizes the application of geospatial technology to assess habitat resources for wildlife management. The two modules incorporate the global positioning system (GPS), geographic information system (GIS), and remote sensing technologies combined with field-tested, scientifically-based principles providing an integrated approach to natural resources management. The two modules are vertically integrated where field measurements are combined based on common sampling points. Pre- or Co-requisite: RREN 303; (senior standing or permission of the instructor) 1 credit (2 lecture hours, 2 laboratory hours), 5-week course, fall semester

Admissions Requirements

Students admitted into this upper division baccalaureate program must posses an associate in applied science (A.A.S.) or equivalent degree with a minimum 2.20 grade point average (GPA). A student who does not meet the minimum GPA requirement may be admitted on conditional basis. An associate degree in Natural Resources, Environmental Science, Environmental Technology, Aquaculture and Aquatic Science or a closely related field is strongly recommended. An individual seeking to enroll in the Renewable Resources B.Tech. with an unrelated associate degree may be granted admittance on the condition that prerequisite course requirements (typically 15 credits) in natural resources, aquatic science, and environmental technology are met.

A student must also have demonstrated proficiency through MATH 102 Algebra and Trigonometry for completion of this program. All bachelor degree students must complete the State University of New York Board of Trustees mandated general education requirements (click here for the MSC list). Consult your academic advisor for specific details.

Graduation Requirements

Students in the renewable Resources major must complete ALL program requirements including a minimum of 120 credit hours of course work as well as the credits from the approved A.S. or A.A.S. degree program
