Course content

This course provides training in geographical information systems (GIS) and in particular their application to a variety of environmental settings. If you want to develop your skills in this area, this is the course for you.

The programme is ideally suited to GIS analysts, decision-makers and managers since it will provide hands-on experience of how to use a variety of GIS systems (ArcViewTM, ARCGISTM, MapInfoTM) in real-world settings.

Students are also able to select more specialist training relevant to their interests and expertise.

The course aims to enhance your previous understanding and use of geographical information systems but it is also suitable for those who have no previous training in GIS.

The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM).
