We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) equip postgraduates with the skills to collect and transmit geographical data, through the application of information technology.
Related subjects include Remote Sensing and Topography. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Geography.
Courses in Geographical Mapping equip you with the skills to solve spatial problem across a range of human and natural environments. This includes urbanised and rural areas, terrestrial landscapes and marine or ocean expanses.
Training covers both practical techniques in topographic mapping and geovisualisation, alongside database programming and web application development for a range of mobile and internet technologies. This could include for example applying remote sensing and satellite systems for environmental monitoring and modelling.
Skills in this field may be applied to a range of careers, as GIS is used across a vast number of industries and services. This may include urban and regional planning for farming, transportation, retail marketing or water and waste management systems.
Other careers may include roles in healthcare, conservation and even the armed forces.
