This programme provides students with a critical understanding of the theory and practice of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and allied remote sensing techniques within the field of applications in geography, geology and environmental sciences.
In the first term, students study courses providing a basic foundation in GIS case studies in Remote Sensing and GIS programming and database management. In the second term, students progress to advanced courses, such as Advanced Spacial Modelling Save and Returnand Advanced Image Processing.
The programme culminates in a third term with the GIS dissertation, an individual piece of research focused on the application of GIS techniques to a specific problem. This research may form an extension or development of topics covered in the preceding applications and case studies courses.
This is a highly respected programme in the UK geographic information industry, and graduates are highly sought after in private industry, agencies and government.
The university also offers PGDip/MSc Remote Sensing with Geographical Information Systems (see page 141), which has the same content as this programme. The title of the degree for which the student receives his or her award is determined by the nature of the student's final dissertation. A student with a dissertation focused on remote sensing is awarded a degree for the Remote Sensing with Geographical Information Systems programme; a student with a GIS-focused dissertation is awarded a degree for the Geographical Information Systems with Remote Sensing programme.
Graduates from this programme can pursue employment in local authorities, the police force, environmental monitoring, urban planning and geology.
