Master of Technology in Geomatics

Faculty of Technology – CEPT University


GEOMATICS, popularly known as Geo-Informatics refers to the mathematics, science, and technology used to study spatial information. It is a field with ancient roots, modern relevance, and an eye to the future. This multidisciplinary course integrates the acquisition, management, analysis, modeling and presentation of geospatial information.

M.Tech in Geomatics is a multi-disciplinary professional course wherein advanced subjects like Remote Sensing, GIS, Database Management Systems, Spatial Data analysis, Programming languages, Photogrammetry, GPS and Location Based Systems, LiDAR, Big-data, Web and Mobile GIS, Open Source technologies, Project Planning and Geo-visualization are taught. It gives a unique opportunity to explore the wide applications in multidisciplinary fields of Engineering, Construction, Infrastructure, Utilities, Planning, Management, Information Technology, and Governance.

The program emphasizes on theory, practical applications through hands-on exercises, studio (real-time case studies) and independent dissertation. Faculty members are drawn from scientific and academic institutions, experienced professionals with in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge who bring applied experience to the classroom. A wide exposure and encouragement to be a part of rich knowledge exchange programs such as national and international seminars, workshops and summer schools pertaining to the Geospatial industry, have remained a key strength of the program over the years, since its inception at CEPT University in 1987.

M. Tech in Geomatics at CEPT University is augmented with cutting-edge courses with latest technologies and applications for natural and built environment. CEPT University cherishes the individual interests and abilities of its students and helps them chart their own academic pathways while keeping a focus on the main program and individual area of interest.

With the increasing awareness and need for decision making through Information Technology, graduates from the M.Tech Geomatics program can build their careers with government bodies and organizations, corporate houses, NGOs, academic and research organizations. Our students have been successfully placed nationally and internationally, while many have also been successful in starting and establishing a consultancy firm for providing Geospatial solutions.
