Overview

This Geocomputation programme from Maynooth University aims to:

  •  Enhance advanced specialist knowledge in Geocomputation alongside transferable and generic skills.
  • Enable students to disseminate their research.

Career options

There is an international shortage of highly skilled researchers able to handle large and complex datasets. Thus far our graduates have continued with research in academic environments but there are opportunities in public and private sector research and development, with environmental concerns and policy organisations: much depends on the substantive area of the thesis topic. This might focus on the innovative collection and processing of new datasets, on visualising complex datasets in multiple dimensions, on machine learning or on algorithms for the spatial analysis of data in a particular application area, for example health and retailing.
