It is a two years course leading to the degree of M.Sc. in Remote Sensing and GIS. The course is based on four semesters having 96 credits. The course is equivalent to other M.Sc. courses. This course has been formulated according to the guidelines which is taught in different Indian University / Institution such as Jiwaji University, Gwalior (M.P); Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati University, Ajmer (Rajasthan); Mahatma Gandhi Chitrakoot Gramodaya Vishwavidayalaya Chitrakoot, Satna (M.P), university of Pune (Maharashtra), Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) Dehradun and Birla Institute of Technology (BIT) Ranchi. The proposed course content has been prepared keeping in view the course content taught in above said Universities and their scope in job market.
Remote Sensing Field Work: Remote sensing Field work / training is an integral part of this Course. As such, the students of M.Sc. 1st and Ilird Semester are required to undergo for Field Work (2-3 weeks duration) separately in each academic session to acquire comprehensive and detailed field training in various aspects, such as GPS survey, field checking, ground truth studies and visit to various national Remote Sensing laboratories. At the end of the above fieldwork, each student will be required to submit a field report covering all aspects for evaluation. The evaluation based on field work report, and viva - voce shall be done by the Teacher In-Charge of the Field Work and /or Course Coordinator.
Project Work: The subject/topic of the Project Work, related to the problems of Remote Sensing and GIS will be allotted to each student in the beginning of the M.Sc. IVth Semester. The students, in consultation with their respective supervisors, may give their choice of preference of problem /topic / area. However, the decision of the Head/Course Coordinator shall be final. Each student will be required to work independently on the problem assigned including literature consultation, data collection, fieldwork and/or training, laboratory investigations, report writing etc., under the guidance of his/her supervisor. The students will have to submit to the department three typed (bound) copies of his/her work, in the form of Project Report. After the evaluation, a copy of which will be returned to the concerned supervisor and the student separately.
