The growth in importance of geographical information systems (GIS) within sustainable natural resource management has led to an increasing demand for relevant GIS skills amongst trained natural resource managers. This postgraduate degree will provide you with detailed training in the techniques of GIS analysis, with particular reference to the sustainable management of natural resources and application of GIS to resource management. You will learn the techniques involved in the creation, collection, storage, processing, modelling, interpretation, display and dissemination of data and information about the environment.

Resources available to you include an optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) lab, an atomic absorption spectrophotometer, a scanning electron microscope, a cold store, a Coulter laser diffraction particle size analyser, differential GPS, and a 3D laser scanner - along with a wide range of electronic and traditional field equipment.
