Master's Programs in Geospatial Technologies. Master of Technology in Geomatics Program Overview The Masters of Technology in Geomatics is a field with ancient roots, modern relevance, and an eye to the future. Geomatics is both an applied science and a professional discipline. Geomatics,also known as Geo-Informatics, refers to the mathematics, science and technology used to study spatial information. M.Tech in Geomatics is a professional course which is unique and different than mainstream specialization which offers latest space-based technology. Geomatics is for those who are tech-savvy, want to get trained and skill developed in remote sensing and geographical information systems, those with knowledge of computers can use their skills in developing tools to make the world interesting and simple to understand for people and knowledge-based decision making. Those who belong to the field of Engineering, Architecture, Planning, Information Technology, Computer Science, Basic Science, Earth Science, Geography, but would like to study for an applied career then Geomatics can be very rewarding. Curriculum Masters in Geomatics is designed ‘discipline neutral’ for interdisciplinary graduate students and professionals. It includes earth observation from space through various remote sensing sensors. The course covers data acquisition system, GIS, information technology, resources application and analysis to the interdisciplinary graduates and professionals. Geomatics extends into more contemporary methods including Global Positioning Systems, Digital Photogrammetry, LiDAR Technology, qualitative and quantitative analysis of satellite and aerial imagery specific to earth sciences and environmental applications. Various aspects of project planning and management, database design and archiving, Big-data, Web and Mobile GIS, integration and handling of multiple geo-spatial data by integrated approach and applications with extensive theoretical and case based training are also taught. Admission and Prerequisites A minimum of 55% aggregate marks in bachelor’s/Master’s degree for general category candidates and 50% for SC/ ST/OBC category candidates is required for all the PG Faculty of Technology Program. Bachelor of Engineering/ Bachelor of Technology in – Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Agriculture, Water Resources, Environmental Engineering, Electronics and Communication, Information Technology. Bachelor of Architecture or Planning Masters of – Basic Science, Earth Science, Climate Science, Environment Science, Information Technology, Disaster Management, M A in Geography. International Entry Requirements CEPT’s guiding principal for International Admissions is to seek equivalence between International standards achieved and those of Indian home students. There are differences between Europe, America and India in degree length, academic standards and award structure. CEPT will therefore consider each International application on its merits seeking international equivalence and bearing in mind any professional requirements that these Programs have.
