Undergraduate Minor in Geotechnology

This minor is intended for those who are majoring in any undergraduate university degree program at ISU. The minor provides training in the core geotechnologies: GIS, remote sensing, and GPS, plus electives in computational geography, information technology, cartography, and other related areas.


To receive a minor in Geotechnology, you must be in good standing and enrolled in an academic undergraduate program at ISU.  Enroll in Principles of GIS (GEOL 4403) as soon as possible and contact Geotechnology Program Coordinator Carrie Bottenberg.


The undergraduate minor in Geotechnologies requires the core courses (13-14 cr.) plus 5 elective credits, to equal a total of 18-19 credits. Nine (9) credits may be shared between the geotechnologies minor and your major degree program.
