About

The Geospatial Sciences (Building Information Modelling and Surveying) MSc from University College London (UCL) teaches students the theory, tools and techniques for working with geospatial data, from acquisition to processing to analysis. 

Overview

During the Geospatial Sciences (Building Information Modelling and Surveying) programme from University College London (UCL), students have the opportunity to engage and work with academics and industrial partners on cutting-edge research through seminars and a dissertation.

The specialist Building Information Modelling (BIM) programme will educate students in the geometric and semantic aspects of BIM and the integrated management of geospatial and BIM-related data. This includes principles of surveying, 3D reality capture, a general overview of technologies related to mapping sciences, geo-information science and 3D geometric modelling.

Careers

Students graduating with a degree in Geospatial Sciences (Building Information Modelling) will be equipped for a diverse range of roles, including BIM or surveying manager, geospatial data scientist, geospatial software developer and consultant. Graduates go on to work for a variety of organisations including major infrastructure projects, engineering consultancies, geospatial software companies and national mapping agencies. 

Our students establish strong links with industry through the industrial seminar series and industrial research projects. Additionally, many graduates from our programmes go on to PhD research at UCL or elsewhere.

Employability

Students will gain a range of technical skills in geospatial science that are highly valued by employers, including the use of specialist software for surveying, Reality Capture, BIM and GIS (e.g. Cyclone, PhotoScan, Revit, QGIS, FME); programming, web and software development (e.g. Python, R, MATLAB); geospatial data processing and management; geospatial data visualisation and analysis.
