Advanced Design, Geospatial, and Visualization Technologies: Cert

Advanced Design, Geospatial, and Visualization Technologies

As one of 75 accredited landscape architecture programs in the U.S., Utah State strives to provide their bachelors of landscape architecture students with an edge by providing this Advanced Design, Geospatial, and Visualization Technologies Certificate.

Up to 95% of landscape architecture firms are adopting new technologies, such as drones, virtual reality and parametric modeling. However, no other program within the U.S. offers substantial training on these technologies.

By earning this certificate, students will learn through practice and real-world implementation how to use drones, virtual reality, advanced 3D and parametric modeling and geospatial data analysis to enhance landscape designs and planning.


With a certificate in advanced design, geospatial, and visualization technologies, students may pursue the following careers:

  • City planner/landscape architect
  • Design of resorts and theme parks
  • Virtual media design (graphic design, designing virtual landscapes for computer games)
  • Visual/scenic landscape analyst

Admission Requirements

Students must be admitted into a bachelor's or master's degree program within the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning.
