There is a growing need for scientists who have expertise in one or more domains of environmental modelling and GIS-based spatial analysis and decision support. The Geospatial Analysis MSc at UCL aims to provide rigorous scientific and vocational training for the next generation of scientific modelling professionals. What and how will I learn? The programme combines a rigorous treatment of underlying theory for, and methods of implementing and exploiting, spatial analysis and decision support. Optional courses provide the opportunity to develop expertise in modelling and analysis in one or more areas of environmental science with social and policy dimensions. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of four core courses (60 credits), four optional courses (60 credits) and a research dissertation (60 credits). Core modules GIS Principles and Technology Mapping Science Principles of Spatial Analysis Representation, Structures and Algorithms Options Airborne Data Acquisition Coastal Change Climate Modelling Geodemographics and Population Geography Geographic Information System Design ManagementGroup Project Network and Locational Analysis Science and Politics of Climate Change Spatial Decision Support Spatio-temporal Analysis and Data Mining Surface Water Modelling Terrestrial Carbon: Modelling and Monitoring Web and Mobile GIS Dissertationreport All MSc students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of approximately 15,000 words and an oral presentation. The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials and laboratory and computer-based practical classes. Assessment is through independent project work, practical-based and written coursework, and the dissertation.

The Geospatial Analysis MSc is run by UCL Geography, which enjoys an outstanding international reputation for its research and teaching. The programme brings together the strong expertise in the department in spatial science and environmental modelling. Contributions to the programme are also made by UCL Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering, providing expertise in geographic information systems. Students become part of a vibrant, enthusiastic,and international research environment in which collaboration and free-ranging debate are stongly encouraged. UCL's location, in central London, provides easy access to many key intellectual venues and resources, such as the British Library. Your career There is a national and international need for scientists with skills in GIS-based analysis and decision support complemented by a deep knowledge of domain-specific models and analytical methods that can be brought to bear on envirnmental issues and their social consequences. The MSc provides an ideal foundation for PhD research, or for prospective employment within a wide range of industires, government departments, environmental agencies, and consultancies.
