Meet our faculty

The MSc. programme in Geoinformatics at the TERI University is a two year programme for students who want to specialize in the areas of geo-information and earth sciences. Geo-informatics is rapidly evolving as a study area that can bring in additional and meaningful insights using multi-disciplinary approach to problem solving in areas such as resource estimation and assessments, impact assessments etc. The study of Geo-informatics equips students with technologies that can support such estimation, mapping and analysis.

The core strength of the programme lies in its innovative curriculum that imbues present and future professionals with practical and theoretical knowledge in the domain of geoinformatics. Students are exposed to a wide range of cutting-edge applications of geospatial techniques to emulate real-life problems.

WHY STUDY Geoinformatics

Research in the areas of geo-information and earth sciences increasingly rely on spatial data and analysis. Programme in Geoinformatics empowers students in dealing with various problems like the environment, health hazards, urbanization, natural disasters, etc. by giving them exposure in geospatial technology. The programme also helps in understanding various rules and regulations regarding data collection and dissemination as well as laws and policies associated with the innumerable aspects of environment.


The MSc Geoinformatics programme at the TERI University is extensively lab oriented. Students are exposed to a wide range of practical exercises covering different applications of remote sensing, GIS, photogrammetry to real-life problems, law and policy for remote sensing and mapping. It enables students to understand various rules and regulations regarding data collection and dissemination and learn about various laws and policies related to environment.

Given the interdisciplinary nature of the programme, the inter-relationship of different subjects in the curriculum is highlighted through a minor and major project. The projects allow integration of knowledge acquired by students in various courses and permits application of knowledge to analyze real-life problems in the chosen area of interest.

Where will the Degree Take You?

The students who complete MSc Geoinformatics programme possess the requisite skills to work as GIS engineers, geo- database managers and remote sensing specialists in both public and private organizations.

Student Participation / Achievements

The programme provides explicit skills training in the field of Geoinformatics to students. They not only learn from leading industry professionals and academicians but also get extensive industry exposure.
