The Environmental Mapping MSc is designed to appeal to students looking to understand the environment. It provides the opportunity to study at an advanced level the ways in which spatial data can be collected, processed and analysed to map and understand the environment. What and how will I learn? Students receive core training in mapping science, analytical methods, GIS, image processing, and other fundamentals of geomatics. They develop techniques for the acquisition of data including satellite remote sensing, GNSS and LIDAR, alongside techniques for the analysis, processing, interpretation, and display of spatial data. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of six core courses (60 credits), optional courses (60 credits) and an research project (60 credits). Core Modules Mapping Science Computing for Image Analysis Image Processing and GIS Principles and Practice of Remote Sensing GIS Data Analysis Analytical Methods Dissertationreport All students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of 10,000 words. Options OPTIONS MAY INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING: Environmental Geoscience Advanced Topics in GIS 1 Airborne Laser Scanning Geomatics for the Coastal Zone Positioning 1 Topographic Mapping Advanced Topics in GIS 2 Geomatics for Ocean Management Research Methods in Geomatics Terrestrial Laser Scanning Image Understanding Spatio-Temporal Data Mining Vegetation Science The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, demonstrations, tutorials, transferable skills training, compulsory computer training and research supervision. A field programme is held in Spain for students following the advanced course in Geoscience. Assessment is through unseen written examinations, coursework, a dissertation and an oral presentation. Why should I study this degree at UCL? he MSc is run by UCL Geography, which enjoys an outstanding reputation for its research and teaching. This MSc offers students an all-round knowledge of methods of monitoring and understanding the environment, including the fundamental principles, current technological developments and the applications to local, regional and global problems. Graduates of the programme are equipped with highly developed practical skills to enable them to take leading roles in academic, government or industrial sectors. Your future career The MSc will appeal to individuals interested in developing research training while acquiring vocational skills for work in environmental and mapping related positions in public and private sector institutions. The programme also offers a suitable training for those wishing to undertake higher level work as a prelude to a PhD. How to apply Apply online via http:www.ucl.ac.ukstudygraduate-study 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 with backgrounds in environmental sciences (such as geography and geology), and for those with backgrounds in more quantitative sciences (such as physics or engineering) who wish to exploit their skills in an environmental science context.
