Geographical Information Technologies
UNIGIS is a Distance Learning Postgraduate Network in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) run jointly by Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Salford designed to meet the needs of professionals working in the GI industry. Aids critical understanding of the software engineering practices and standards that underpin database and web application development and the methodologies for implementing those practices in a GIS context. A critical understanding of the issues involved in designing the storage and use of geographical data in databases and web-based applications is forged. Also key is proficiency in the design, implementation and evaluation of small scale database and web-application projects.
Normal entry requisites are: A relevant Honours degree or an HND/Foundation degree and relevant experience; or relevant professional qualifications, and experience. Each application is considered individually, based on qualification and experience. Enthusiasm and commitment are also important.
Year 1: Foundations of GIS, spatial data infrastructure, databases.
All study routes employ web-based delivery and aim to provide the conceptual and technical framework required for an in-depth understanding of GIS. Each route has either core or elective units available and all incorporate a project and dissertation which involves the design and execution of an original study.
