The Professional Master of Geospatial Science and Technology (PMGST) equips current and future geospatial professionals with experience in GIS and location data analysis, for leadership roles in government, industry, and research.
This taught Master’s offers foundational knowledge for those from a diverse range of backgrounds to acquire the knowledge, skills, and industry networks to work effectively in a geospatial environment. It will also provide development opportunities for those already in the industry.
The programme intersects relevant disciplines such as Data Science, Computer Science, and Environmental Science with spatial analysis. Students will gain skills in programming, research analysis, database management, using and applying geospatial technology, and communication.
