Geographical Information Science (GIS) provides powerful solutions to real-world problems using a range of the world’s most advanced technologies.
GIS captures, stores, manages and displays data related to positions on the Earth’s surface so you can better understand spatial patterns and relationships.
Every day around the world, GIS is used to solve complex problems. As a result, it is becoming integrated into almost every discipline.
From population dynamics, estate planning, logistics management, public health surveillance, and telecommunications to tracking deforestation, environmental management and predicting climate change - GIS is changing the way the world works.
The university's successful MSc in Geographical Information Science (GIS) was the first of its type in the world, and has a heritage of over 30 years.
The course is continually refreshed to keep you abreast of the latest technological changes and industry trends. You will gain critical theoretical knowledge, develop strong practical skills and undertake supervised independent research, all under the guidance of our internationally recognised staff.
