Post Graduate Certificate in Geoinformatics launched by IGNOU

21 May, 2014
The School of Sciences of IGNOU has launched the Post Graduate Certificate Programme in Geoinformatics (PGCGI). Geoinformatics technologies deal with acquisition, storage, processing and dissemination of spatial information. Geoinformatics is an emerging field and the demand of geoinformatics professionals is increasing by the day in both Government and private sectors because of its application potential in several fields. The PG Certificate programme has been designed and developed with the help of eminent experts from IIT, IIIT, ISRO, DRDO, C-DAC and various universities across India from the fields of remote sensing, GIS, GPS, image interpretation, digital image processing, cartography, and different application areas.

The programme is mainly targeted at working professionals who possess little or no exposure to Geoinformatics but are interested in initiating and developing skills in this emerging field. Graduates desirous of developing skills in this field can also take admission in this programme. So, any graduate who has studied science at 10+2 level can take admission in this PG Certificate programme, which is offered both in January and July sessions of IGNOU. Duration of the PG Certificate in Geoinformatics programme is six months, however, learners can complete it within a span of two years and there is no age bar. This programme provides opportunity to learners interested to develop basic skills and willing to go for higher studies in geoinformatics. It will also be helpful in strengthening the efficiency and effectiveness of in-service personnel working in various organisations dealing with the use of geospatial data.
The programme is in offer in distance mode and the Regional Centres situated in various States of India will enrol learners. The learners will be provided with student support service through Study Centres established at various places. Currently, the study centres for this programme are located at Srinagar (J&K), Pune (Maharashtra), Durg (Chhattisgarh), Guwahati (Assam) and New Delhi.
