The Oregon Institute of Technology will offer online courses in surveying and geographic information systems (GIS) this fall.

Offered by Oregon Tech’s geomatics department beginning Sept. 30, 2013, the fully accredited courses are designed for the working professional that desires oregontech_inbodyformal education to advance their career.

Dr. John Ritter will lead the GIS courses, and Mitch Duryea, PLS, will teach the surveying courses. Both are faculty members at the Oregon Tech campus in Klamath Falls, Ore.

“We’re excited to expand our program online,” Duryea said in a statement released by Oregon Tech. “This offers us even more ability to reach students who are unable to attend our Klamath Falls or Wilsonville campus. At this time, we have 3-4 courses available online each term and have plans to add additional courses in the future.”
