Yesterday the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board approved the introduction of a new PhD program in Geospatial Computing Sciences at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.
This unique PhD proposal was designed by faculty from the Geographic Information Science/Geospatial Surveying Engineering programs and faculty from Computer Science programs. See attached proposal [below].
This email is to inform you that we have begun the process of recruiting and will be developing a web site to attract suitably qualified candidates. We also have two new faculty lines (Geographic Information Science and Computer Science) open and have started searches for these research based tenure track positions.
We are very pleased to be part of this new initiative in advanced geospatial computing.
Your continued support and interest in all we do has helped immensely in moving this opportunity forward.
I very much appreciate your kind support and interest.
