MASTER OF SCIENCE (GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SCIENCE)- MSC (GIS)

Application of GIS in Malaysia is increasing especially in environment and geohazard management’s field, urban planning, logging, health application matters and petroleum. Moreover, GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts.

The Master of Science In Geographical Information Science by coursework consists of 12 core courses and 2 electives courses. Besides these taught subjects, students are required to submit a Research Project of 10 credits. To graduate, students must complete a total of 40 credits. Students are assessed through assignments, presentations and a final examination.... [-]

MScLandscape Ecology with Geographical Information Systems

This programme is designed to equip graduates with the knowledge and technical skills required to fulfil a professional role involving the collection, management, analysis, modelling, manipulation and display of landscape ecology, land use planning, and environmental conservation datasets using Geographical Information Systems (GIS).

In both the UK and overseas the concept of landscape-scale land management has gained acceptance over the last decade. The implementation of environmental conservation policies and strategies based on a landscape ecology approach is increasingly dependent on spatial data that are managed and manipulated within a GIS. As a result, the Ecological Skills Gap Project has identified a clear need for ecologists with experience of GIS and for GIS specialists with an understanding of the environmental data they are being asked to manage and manipulate within a GIS....

Overview

Geographical information management is an exciting and rapidly growing branch of information technology (IT), incorporating satellite remote sensing, aerial photography, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS), to derive information which is essential for the management of the earth’s resources at local, national and global scales.

The management of geographic information is now integral to decision making processes at local, national and international scales. Globally, the rate of spatial data capture has never been greater. The data requires appropriate management to ensure quality, correct usage and robust solutions derived from the data. As one of the UK’s AgriTech centres, we are applying these principles in the realm of digital agriculture to increase the efficiency and sustainability of the agriculture sector. Specialists are required to generate, manage and advise on data use in both the private and public sectors. The Geographical Information Management MSc provides the training required for these specialists.... [-]

Map Out Your Future With an Online Masters in GIS!

Geospatial technologies affect almost every aspect of life, from navigating an unfamiliar neighborhood to tracking patterns of diseases in populations. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, geospatial technologies is one of the three high-growth industries of the 21st century. That translates into big opportunity—and with an Elmhurst M.S. in GIS, you’ll be well-prepared to meet it.

Elmhurst has something most colleges don’t—a dedicated GIS server and access to professional Esri GIS software. So you’ll get something most students won’t: high-end processing power from a regular computer.

Curriculum

The master of science in geographic information systems at Elmhurst requires the successful completion of 10 courses for a total of 7.50 credits (30 semester hours). The program also fulfills the educational requirements of the GISP (certified GIS professional). The curriculum will develop geospatial skill sets in correlation with the Geospatial Technology Competency Model (GTCM) as defined by the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Geospatial Technologies Center of Excellence (Geo Tech Center). AGS 500 may be waived, per the program director's discretion, for the following students:... [-]
