GIS and Remote Sensing Courses at The University of Arizona

This is a current list of the available Geographic Information Science and Remote Sensing courses. The University of Arizona has the most comprehensive listing of GIS and remote sensing classes in the state of Arizona.

Departments such as Optical Sciences and Electrical and Computer Engineering offer courses that focus on the technical specifications for constructing satellite sensors and cameras. The courses listed below only cover materials about the analysis of the imagery captured by the satellites or cameras.

The Management Information Systems department offers many classes about data structure and relational database management that complement the courses on GIS.
