Geosensing Systems Engineering & Sciences (GSES) graduate studies provide opportunities to students in a wide assortment of disciplines, that cross traditional areas of engineering and scientific specialties, to produce next-generation global engineers and scientists. Currently, the program is supported by six faculty members in three departments – 4 in Civil & Environmental Engineering (CEE), 1 in Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE), and 1 in Earth & Atmospheric Sciences (EAS).
Students with a B.S. degree in engineering, geomatics, geosciences, physics, astronomy, computer sciences, geography, or any related field can be admitted to the GSES graduate research program. A student must provide appropriate and required GRE scores (international students must provide GRE and TOEFL scores) for admission to the GSES graduate program. Funding is available for qualified students.
