Data science technologies are fast-tracking sustainability efforts from forestry to landscape mapping, watershed ecology to archaeology, pollution detection to geology, and everything in between.The Environmental Informatics program is offered at the University of Michigan.


Program Description

SNRE’s interdisciplinary Environmental Informatics field of study prepares industry leaders to develop and use analytical and computer-based methods to assess and protect the Earth’s natural resources. 

Students learn to apply these principles across fields as diverse as social sciences, policy analysis, business, sustainable systems, and terrestrial and aquatic ecosystem management.

Through SNRE’s Environmental Informatics field of study, you can prepare for a wide range of careers in academic research or professional environmental management. Natural resource agencies, NGOs, and nonprofits are increasingly looking for graduates with the training to analyze digital geospatial data. Recently, a U.S. Department of Labor study cited geo-technologies as one of three major areas where future job growth will outstrip demand.

Environmental Informatics graduates at the University of Michigan become remote sensing specialists, area foresters, refuge managers, environmental consultants, conservation and wildlife information specialists, restoration planners, and more.
