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

Programme structure

Teaching is delivered by members of the University’s Centre for Environmental Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis, a unique group comprising scientists, social scientists and technologists from across the University.

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.
