Postgraduate Program in Geospatial Intelligence


Postgraduate Program in Geospatial Intelligence

The Geospatial Intelligence Certificate, accredited by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF), provides education and training in scientific concepts, methods and key geospatial technologies, used in the solution of global problems of security and defense, including emergency and civil protection, natural disasters, humanitarian crisis, environmental risks, military operations, political action in general, public health, education, transport, telecommunications, management dilemmas of heritage, as well as responding to economic, social and cultural challenges, among many others. 

The main objective of this course is to train technicians capable of applying knowledge of image processing and remote sensing, geographic information science, informatics and processes analytical tools to geospatial intelligence, as well as selecting, using, synthesizing and demonstrating the techniques, skills and tools needed to solve GEOINT problems that, on a day-to-day basis, affect and stimulate the society in general.

The completion of this postgraduate degree guarantees access to the Master Degree in Geographic Information Systems and Science.

The applications for this program are open from May 10th to June 6th, 2024. To apply, click here.
