Student Professional GIS Course Reviews | MSU onGEO

Want to hear from our students?

This is what students are saying about our professional courses.

This is the best online instruction vehicle I have ever encountered. Online instruction has distinct strengths and distinct weaknesses, but the onGEO crew at MSU have maximized the strengths and minimized the weaknesses into a truly noteworthy product.

I wanted to let you know that I am using Adobe Illustrator a lot in my current class (structural geology) and I definitely feel ahead of the curve with all my experience using the program in the onGEO courses. Hoping to use ArcGIS for the final project too! Thanks again!

John Mark Brigham, Graduate Student in Geology

I have found the first course very informative! It is all relatively new information for me, and I wasn't sure how 'into it' I would be, but I found that I really enjoyed learning about geospatial technology and am looking forward to the remainder of the courses.

Jenn Kelleher-Hazlett, Master's Student

I gained more knowledge and developed new skills that will assist me with my future works in GIS. I had a very nice experience enrolling for the certificate course. You and your ongeo team are doing a great job! Well done.

Earlier this month I accepted a new job with the Texas Land Conservancy in Austin. I'm very excited about the opportunity to grow in my career and transition into a land conservation organization, and I know that having the GIS professional certificate program on my resume and the knowledge base from our classes has played a large role in making me marketable for this job.

I have taken many online classes over the last couple of years, and this class was by far the most organized, thorough, and enjoyable class. There is a lot of material covered and it is presented in an engaging and thought provoking manner. There are many classes that should look to this class on how to run an online course.

Last Spring semester I took GIS [325]... I am now being recognized by multiple teams at the corporation for my knowledge in ArcGIS. Teams are hounding my boss to allow me to do work for them!

Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful class. I have never learned so much in one class, and actually gained so many new things, skills in Geospatial technology, it's amazing field.

This course really helped guide me to what I want to pursue in my career in local government.
