  • Descriptions
    The programme is designed for professionals in geographic information systems (GIS), surveying or related fields, this programme equips students with the theoretical understanding and practical skills required to specialise in GIS or land and engineering surveying.

    The MSc programme has been accredited by:
    The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS);
    The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS);
    The Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES); and
    The Hong Kong Institution of Engineering Surveyors (HKIES).

    The application of GIS in Hong Kong and many other countries has increased rapidly in the last two decades and beyond just land surveying. Ten years ago, only two or three government departments in Hong Kong used GIS. Today, the list has grown to include the Lands Department, Planning Department, Highways Department, Transport Department, Fire Services Department, Civil Engineering and Development Department, Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department.

    In the private sector, utilities such as gas and power companies have been frequent users. In recent years, telecommunications, planning, public administration, transportation, logistics, car navigation, civil engineering, archaeology and real estate companies have also adopted GIS in their operations. As such, new career opportunities arise for graduates from these postgraduate programmes.
