About

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

Overview

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

The programme educates students in the marine geospatial sciences, equipping them for careers in this rapidly developing subject. Students will gain broad knowledge of the means of acquiring, processing, and analysing spatial data in the marine context – using vessel-based acoustic techniques, satellite positioning, AUVs, and much more.

Careers

Students graduating with a degree in Geospatial Sciences (Hydrographic Surveying) will be equipped for a diverse range of roles, with organisations such as offshore and inshore survey companies, national hydrographic departments, equipment manufacturers and port authorities. 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 and nautical science that are highly valued by employers, including the use of specialist software for Hydrography and GIS (ArcMap, QGIS, Hypack); programming (Python); geospatial data acquisition, processing and management; geospatial data visualisation and analysis.
