This innovative, interdisciplinary programme combines the areas of remote sensing and spatial analysis to provide a broad overview of the subject, with scope for specialisation.
Introducing your course
If you have an interest in utilising computer technology to apply geographical knowledge in order to address key societal and environmental issues then our MSc in Applied Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing (AGIS&RS) is tailor made for you. You will develop the understanding and technical skills required to analyse geospatial data in order to address real-world problems in diverse areas such as public health, food security or to improving our understanding of the carbon cycle. Combining cutting edge research in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and satellite remote sensing, this innovative master’s degree can open the door to successful careers in environmental consultancy firms, software companies, government research institutes and post-graduate research degrees to help you fulfil your ambition.
Our MSc in Applied Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing has three distinctive features:
- It focuses on ‘real world’ problems by applying the technology to areas such as public health and environmental management
- It combines the study of two key technologies – remote sensing and geographical information systems – within a single programme
- It is characterised by strong external links outside the University
- The programme will develop your knowledge of the subject area in order to enhance employment opportunities within earth observation and GIS communities, consultancies, private and public sectors.
Applicants will have relevant degree backgrounds and normally an upper second-class undergraduate degree. Lower second-class undergraduate degrees will be considered where applicants have subsequent relevant work experience. Other qualifications will be considered in lieu of a relevant undergraduate degree. Fees will be advised annually.
