MSc Geographic Information Science

GeoSpatial-Cover-crop.jpgThis Programme is run in conjunction with the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering at UCL. The well-established and highly regarded MSc GISci has been taught by the two departments for two decades; its focus is on educating students in the scientific principles and practical aspects of GISci.


There is ever-growing national and international demand for qualified professionals with expertise in the acquisition, representation and analysis of geographic information. UCL’s Departments of Geography and Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering offer two linked interdisciplinary MSc programmes: Geographic Information Science (GISci) and Geospatial Analysis (GSA). Sharing fundamental elements, these complementary Programmes provide rigorous scientific and technical training for the next generation of geographic information scientists and geospatial analysts.


Professionals whose work entails use and analysis of spatially referenced information are employed across a broad spectrum of agencies, institutions and organisations in the private and public sectors, including research organisations such as universities. Furthermore, both MSc GISci and MSc GSA provide an ideal foundation for PhD research.
