The MS in Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System program at IGIS is intended to give an opportunity to the students with background in diverse fields like engineering, environmental sciences, agriculture, forestry, water resource management, city & regional planning, and telecommunication to apply geospatial tools in their respective fields. The MS program in remote sensing & GIS comprised of 30 credit hours with 24 credit hours of course work and 6 credit hours of research thesis. After completion of the MS Remote Sensing and GIS program at IGIS the graduated student is expected to apply the theory or practical knowledge using the geospatial technologies in their respective field of specialization.

The Institute of Geographical Information Systems (IGIS) is first of its kind higher education learning institute in Pakistan where advance spatial education is delivered. The need for a PhD degree in remote sensing & GIS was felt because the private/public sectors require intensive research in order to compete in the national/international market. Whereas the routine GIS applications are being covered by GIS analysts, research based products cannot be addressed properly until PhD level candidates are inducted in the private/public sectors. Even with a fair usage of GIS technologies, the benefit of GIS has not reached to that level which is required for  industry and private sector emerging needs specifically speaking, modeling techniques where PhD in remote sensing & GIS can play a significant role. This paves way for developing new products thus enhancing the market and contributing to the economy of the country as a whole.
