program overview

Prepare for a career in M. Tech.

M. Tech. in Geoinformatics and Earth Observation is a program offered at School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri campus. Evolution of Smart City and Smart Community based research have increased the demand for spatial assessment and earth system observations. These needs are further enhanced due to climate change impacts. Domain knowledge about the monitoring phenomenon plays a key role in designing systems that minimize the impact of natural hazard and reducing disaster risk.

To achieve this we developed a multidisciplinary curriculum that introduces to a wide spectrum of geospatial data analysis for multi-hazard risk assessment and disaster risk reduction. This program aims to provide the students with an opportunity to acquire detailed systematic knowledge and critical understanding of spatial environment related processes. The program also introduces state of the art technologies for data collection and analysis, as well as the ability to independently develop innovative solutions to complex problems in the area of the environment. The students will learn to become a valuable part in the national and global efforts of climate change mitigation and adaptation, disaster risk reduction, Smart City planning etc.
