The Geographic Information Science MSc is designed to educate students in the theoretical, scientific and practical aspects of geographic information science, and covers a range of topics from quantitative spatial analytical techniques to web-mapping, mobile maps and location-based services. What and how will I learn? Students gain a solid grounding in the scientific principles underpinning spatial analysis and the computational foundations of GIS, as well as a broader practical understanding of topics such as the analysis of GIS user needs, modern programming environments and database management systems and their application within Geographical Information systems. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of eight core courses (90 credits), optional courses (30 credits) and a research project (60 credits). Core Modules Mapping Science Spatial Structures and Representation IT and GIS Analytical Methods GIS Data Analysis Management Group Project Advanced Topics in GIS 1 Advanced Topics in GIS 2 Dissertationreport All students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of 10,000-15,000 words. Options Airborne Laser Scanning Geomatics for the Coastal Zone Image Understanding Positioning 1 Topographic Mapping Geomatics for Ocean Management Positioning 2 Research Methods Spatio-Temporal Data Mining Terrestrial Laser Scanning Introduction to Environmental Remote Sensing Further details available on subject website: http:www.cege.ucl.ac.ukteachingpostgraduategis The programme is delivered through lectures, practical classes, demonstrations and tutorials, and is supported by a series of external speakers from industry and visits to industrial and government establishments. Assessment is through unseen and take-home written examinations, group and individual coursework, formal and oral presentations, and the dissertation. Why should I study this degree at UCL? The Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering is an energetic and exciting environment in which to explore Geographic Information Science (GIS). Students have the advantages of studying in a multi-faculty college with a long tradition of excellence, situated within the heart of one of the world's greatest cities. This MSc draws on internationally recognised expertise from University College London, King's College London and Birkbeck College, and from the geographic information industry. The wide range of topics available is supported by the intercollegiate nature of the programme and the unrivalled concentration of GIS experts at the University of London. Your future career There are excellent employment prospects for our graduates. Students who specialise in geographic information systems find openings in consultancy, local government, public industry, GIS vendors and developers and the information supply industry, as well as in continued research. Entry Requirements A minimum of a second-class UK Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Extensive work experience covering related areas will be considered. How to apply Students are advised to apply as early as possible due to competition for places. Those applying for scholarship funding (particularly overseas applicants) should take note of application deadlines. Who can apply? The programme is suitable for students who wish to develop both the necessary analytical skills to perform research using GIS, as well as the technical skills to develop suitable systems and an understanding of the use of GIS beyond academia. Funding International students may wish to approach their country's Ministry of Education to see if there are any grants for international study.
