The ART Option within RNR Studies
Advanced Resource Technology (ART) is an option within the Renewable Natural Resources Studies Program (RNRS) which leads to a masters or doctoral degree. The RNRS degree may be pursued as a major or minor, and the ART option is one of the two or three required areas of concentration to fulfill the RNRS graduation requirements. The range of technologies included under the ART umbrella is quite broad and covers three general areas:
Students are expected to have a proficiency in basic computer operations and may be required by their advisor committee to take a computer programming course. "C" or "C++" programming language is suggested for all students interested in ART.
In addition to these requirements, students must take 9 credit hours from the following list. At least two of the general ART areas listed below must be represented. Selections must be approved in advance by the student's advisory committee. A doctoral minor in Remote Sensing and Spatial ANalysis is also offered by the campus-wide interdisciplinary Committee on Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis. Other non-RNR courses may be substituted with prior approval of the student's committee.
