Course content

Sustainable use or conservation of the earth's resources requires the organisation, exploitation and integration of technologies such as database management, image processing and digital cartography, to ensure provision of high quality, reliable and up-to-date information. The Geographical Information Management MSc has been developed in direct collaboration with industry, in response to the increased global demand for multi-disciplinary managers, advisors and consultants in resource management. Taught by a dedicated faculty, this course is unique in providing balanced coverage of the key GIS technologies to prepare you for a successful career across the full range of global sectors using geographical information (GI) technologies.

Who is it for?

We welcome students from a variety of backgrounds who have a passion for technology and data, an interest in solving real world problems and making a positive impact. You will acquire experience of world-class spatial problem solving and develop a range of personal and leadership skills to set you on the path for a rewarding career in any one of the growing range of industrial and research sectors that now routinely make use of the GI technologies.
