This part-time Spatial Information Management programme at Dublin Institute Of Technology , delivered over 2 years (4 semesters), provides an opportunity for professionals who use spatial information in their organizations to improve their knowledge and skills for a range of careers in the Surveying and Geo-Information (GI) sectors in Ireland and abroad.


Program Details

The need for competitiveness and efficiency in both the private and public sectors has resulted in a growing awareness of the role of spatial information and GIS technologies in support of the decision making process. This, together with the implementation of the EU INSPIRE Directive and the development of the Irish Spatial Data Infrastructure within the context of the Information Society in Ireland, has highlighted the demand for professionals with particular qualifications and enhanced skills in the understanding, use and management of spatial information.

The Spatial Information Management programme at Dublin Institute Of Technology is presented within the new School of Spatial Planning in the College of Engineering and Built Environment in DIT Bolton Street. A maximum intake of 20 students is planned from different disciplines and backgrounds, all with experience in the use of spatial information.


The programme is accredited by the Irish Institution of Surveyors and the Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors.
