Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing are considered essential tools to spatially explore, analyze, visualize and disseminate data; and these skills are increasingly highly sought after in the workplace.
The aim of the Applied Geospatial Analysis programme at University College Dublin is to provide you with the skillset for real-world spatial exploration of social, economic and environmental patterns and interactions in support of evidence-based planning and decision-making. It will afford you the opportunity to apply acquired skills in pragmatic contextual settings.
This programme will provide you with practical and applied GIS/remote sensing abilities as well as a range of academic and transferable skills that will be a benefit in many careers. Graduates of this programme may progress to doctoral study or to careers in:
- Evironmental and planning consultancies
- Government departments and local authorities
- State and semi-state agencies (e.g. Central Statisitics Office, Environmental Protection Agency, Ordnance Survey of Ireland)
