Pg Dip & MSc in Spatial Information Management

Course Description

This new part-time programme, delivered over 2 1/2 years (5 semesters), provides an opportunity for professionals who use spatial information in their organizations to improve their knowledge and skills for a range of careers in the Surveying and Geo-Information (GI) sectors in Ireland and abroad.

The need for competitiveness and efficiency in both the private and public sectors has resulted in a growing awareness of the role of spatial information and GIS technologies in support of the decision making process.This, together with the development of the Irish Spatial Data Infrastructure within the context of the Information Society in Ireland, has highlighted the demand for professionals with particular qualifications and enhanced skills in the understanding, use and management of spatial information.

The programme is presented within the new School of Spatial Planning in the Faculty of the Built Environment in DIT. A total intake of 20 students is anticipated from different disciplines and backgrounds, all with experience in the use of spatial information.
