Course summary

Combine data, technology and science to find new solutions to the world’s biggest challenges.

The MSc Earth Observation and Geoinformation Management aims to provide you with the theoretical and practical skills to use and analyse Earth observation data in conjunction with geographical information science.

This unique programme is well-embedded in an active research and industry environment, and builds on our successful MSc Geographical Information Science degree, which was the first of its type in the world with a heritage of over 30 years.

What is Earth Observation and Geoinformation Management?

Geographical Information Science (GIS) captures, stores, checks and displays data related to positions on the Earth’s surface so you can better understand spatial patterns and relationships.

Earth observation involves the gathering of information about the Earth’s physical, chemical and biological systems using remote sensing technologies such as satellites.

Career opportunities

Specialised expertise in the use of remotely sensed data as part of larger geospatial data management is increasingly sought in graduates.

The MSc Earth Observation and Geoinformation Management has been specifically designed to give you a unique and thorough understanding of this relatively new and rapidly expanding field.

The programme has excellent relationships with relevant employers, as well as a diverse alumni network. We provide a dedicated careers event, with contacts in industry giving you informative information on the current market and an insight into potential employment opportunities.
