Master of Science in Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems

The Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems Master of Science Program at UAE University is the first of its kind in the region. It is designed to provide you with the theoretical background and practical skills to start or advance your career in remote sensing and GIS. Our curriculum has been specifically developed to suit students from diverse academic backgrounds and professional occupations. No prior remote sensing or GIS experience is required to excel in the program. In the last few years, the realization of the significance of the spatial aspect of processes that influence our natural and societal environments along with technological advances in computers, remote sensing and satellite positioning, propelled the integration of spatial data in the decision making process and day-today activities of many governmental and private organizations.

The demand for professionals with geospatial skills has been consistently increasing in various sectors including municipalities, police, environmental agencies, utilities companies and oil industry. Our primary objective is to educate and train those who need spatial thinking and geospatial techniques in their current or future careers. When you enroll in our program, you will be trained by qualified UAEU faculty members from different colleges and departments. You will also interact with professionals from diverse organizations and have an opportunity for professional networking.
