About this course

Geomatics

Geomatics is an interdisciplinary scientific and technical discipline that combines aspects of surveying and sensor technology with data processing, geoinformatics, and geomodelling. It deals with the acquisition, analysis, interpretation, dissemination, and practical application of geoinformation.


Program Overview/Vision of the Program:

“Digital India” and sustainable development is the foremost and main concern of the recent India’s journey as it’s the asset and critical component of nation economy. Geospatial Science 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), LIDAR, Web and mobile GIS, Big data analytics to derive information which is essential for the management of the earth’s resources at local, national and global scales. LJKU offers the most innovative and dynamic program tailored for modern technological trends to meet the expectation of the labor market which is spectacularly growing in recent years. The program inhibits cohort-based learning methodology especially designed to provide students with advanced analytic and technical training in geospatial technologies and professional skill-building, in order to prepare graduates for the geospatial workforce, there are ever flourishing opportunities in many sectors, from government and national security to business, environmental studies, health and many more. With high demand, professionals with advanced degrees will be better positioned for leadership roles and the most highly regarded jobs in the industry. Course is basically designed to meet the needs of working professionals.

Geomatics is multidisciplinary in nature our curriculum has been specifically developed to suit students from diverse academic backgrounds and professional occupations which integrates analysis, modelling, and geo-visualization. It is intended to provide you studio-based learning and dissertation towards the fulfillment of degree with the theoretical background and practical skills to advance your career in remote sensing and GIS. No prior remote sensing or GIS experience is required to excel in the program. 

 

The enhanced and uniqueness of course offered by the university provides students the strong application of geospatial science and technology, policy, solution, capacity building, entrepreneurship and cooperation for sustainable socio-economic development at all levels of governance.

Application & Key learnings on:

Photogrammetry, Cartography, Aerial Photography, GPS, GIS, Remote Sensing, Meteorology, Hydrology, UAV, Web-GIS, Big data analytics, 3D modelling, spatial modelling, model builder, language programming, forestry, resource management and etc.

Software’s: ERDAS, ArcGIS, QGIS, Map-box, SAGA, ENVI, SCADA system, global mapper WaterGEMS, MSP, MS Access etc. 

Scope

Geomatics for the Built Environment will provides vital spatial knowledge about the built environment. 

Our program will expose students to the use of advanced techniques in data collection and analysis, spatial information modeling and the visualization of data.

This will help Geomatics professionals to easily find jobs in (international) companies, universities and governmental institutes.

The Planning Commission, Government of India has floated the idea of the National GIS during early 2000s. It has established an Interim Core Group (ICG) to prepare a blueprint for the development of the National GIS. It was with a vision to establish a national “GIS Platform” through an organizational structure of Indian National GIS Organization (INGO). The Planning Commission envisaged that the NGIS could become a fundamental component of India’s planning and developmental infrastructure, providing visibility into various aspects of the national economic and governance process, development process, etc and at the same time also bringing value to enterprise commerce and citizen services, truly making it a national system. As a result, majority of the Ministries are now using GIS, several industries have come up, both at hardware and software based, the job market perspective has observed changed. What is needed is skilled manpower and well-learned qualified youths to serve the national level important domain.
The country needs several more colleges and universities to take initiatives and start the Education in Geomatics.

Program Learning and outcomes:

  • Analyze the problem and cases from geo-spatial perspective

  • Identify and explain principles, concepts, methods and techniques relevant for spatial analysis and earth observations

  • Use and design models to simulate or study processes in the system earth with a spatial tool.

  • Explore the temporal and social context of geomatics science and technology and be able to integrate these insights in the scientific work.

  • Analyze scientific and practical domain problem in a systematic manner and develop scientifically valid solutions for these problems in a societal context.

  • Operate professionally and ethically in a multi-cultural environment.

  • Independently design and carry out research in the domain according to scientific quality standards.

  • Explain and contrast Contextual difference that influence the collection classification and visualization of spatial information.

  • Communicate both orally and in writing on findings of research work to specialists and non-specialist.
