About

Use geographical data to solve real-world problems on this master’s degree in applied geographical information systems and remote sensing. At this Applied Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing MSc course offered by the University of Southampton you’ll use the latest technology and develop key programming and analytical techniques.

Overview

Course Details

Gain the knowledge and practical skills to analyse geospatial data from remote sensing technology such as satellites and radar. You'll be able to use that data to create geographical information systems (GIS).

These interactive applications are used in everything from engineering and disaster management to understanding the carbon cycle.  

At this Applied Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing MSc course offered by the University of Southampton from a UK Russell Group university you’ll:  

  • focus on real-world problems in areas such as public health and environmental management  
  • study 2 key technologies in a single programme

A unique feature of the course is the chance to learn programming in both IDL (remote sensing) and Python (GIS), to allow you to automate big GIS and remote-sensing tasks. These programming skills are often required by employers in this field.  

Our academics are all active researchers, so you’ll directly benefit from their latest findings. And you’ll be able to choose your own specialism through your choice of optional modules. 

Your studies will be enhanced by the use of facilities such as a high-end geoprocessing suite and terrestrial laser scanning equipment.

Career Opportunities

Programming skills are in great demand with employers, and our GIS and remote sensing master's graduates enjoy very high employment rates. 

After graduating from this vocational course you’ll be in an ideal position to work in Earth observation and GIS communities, in programming, development, analysis or consultancy roles.

Your practical knowledge and skills will put you in demand with organisations such as:  

  • environmental consultancy firms 
  • software companies 
  • government research institutes
