98% career outcome rate1

Geospatial technologies are used by everyone every day, though most people don’t realize it. When your package arrives via UPS or FedEx, when your steps are tracked on your Fitbit, when you use Google Maps to locate the nearest Dairy Queen, you’re using geospatial technology.

The geospatial technologies minor at Concordia University, Nebraska is an interdisciplinary minor that combines geography, programming, database management and information technology. You’ll learn to utilize the latest Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), remote sensing and drone technology to track everything from personal fitness to humanitarian relief efforts to changes on the surface of the earth.
