Certificate Course – 300 Level


2012 January - June


Aims & Objectives

Geoinformatics is the application of computer technologies and methodologies for scientific analysis of spatial information from remotely sensed and other Auxiliary Informations including Ground Survey.

The aim of the course is to generate manpower to effectively use spatial data for natural resource management, infrastructure development, disaster management, business development, environmental management, land use studies and urban and rural management studies etc. The course is aimed at developing basic concepts of data acquisition, conversion of data to digital database, analysis and synthesis of data, and finally decision making and dissemination of results.

The geoinformatics course is a multi-disciplinary programme which includes courses in computer applications, cartography, numerical analysis, database management system, remote sensing and photogrammetry, digital image analysis, geographic information systems and application of remote sensing, human settlements, agriculture and forestry, oceanography and environment.

Eligibility / Pre-requisite

The Graduates / Engineering Graduates of Civil / Electronics / Computer / Physics / Mathematics / Geoinformatics are eligible for the admission. Bright graduate students in final semester are also eligible.

Selection / Registration

Course director would decide based on the Candidates’ Merit and inclination towards Research in the Field of Geomatics. Submit the form if interested to join for the course on or before 20th. Once selection is confirmed, could pay the fee and join on 25th January.
