  • GIS is emerging as a big area as it is applied in many projects related to remote sensing, mapping and data analysis. Accordingly the job positions are also coming up.

    Apart from the list of institutes in Banglore mentioned by Dr Rao as above, in our country, there are many good institutions from where one can do this course and some of these institutions are -

    (1) National Institute of Building Technology, Bangalore.
    (2) Indian Institute of Remote Sensing, Dehradun.
    (3) Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
    (4) Indian Institute of Technology, Department of Geoinformatics, Kanpur.
    (5) Institute of Remote Sensing, Anna University, Chennai.
    (6) Symbiosis Institute of Geoinformatics, Pune.

    Those who are qualified in GIS or remote sensing can be hired in positions like GIS Data Specialist/Scientist, GIS Business Analyst, GIS Operator, Geospatial Software Engineer, GIS Application Specialist, GIS Engineer, GIS Programmer and GIS Technical Assistant.

    After obtaining the requisite qualification in GIS stream one has got options to apply in different Govt/ PSU /Private organisations.

    Some of the organisations and areas where such job opportunities arise time to time are -

    Indian Space Research Organization, National Remote Sensing Center, Indian Council of Agriculture Research, Space Application Centers, Urban Development Authorities and Municipalities, Watershed and Wetland Management Organisations, Forest Survey of India, Geological Survey of India, Survey of India, Department of Science and Technology, Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Environment, National Spatial Data Infrastructure, Indian Institute of Remote Sensing, Indian Agricultural Research Institute, Agricultural Department and Irrigation Department, National Informatics Centre, North Eastern Space Applications Center, Meteorological Department and Mining, Soil Conservation, Land Degradation and Ground Water Management Organisations etc.

    Campus recruitment varies from the institution to institution and for that we have to see the track record of a particular institution in the past.

    Once you compete the course from a particular institute then you have to keep a watch on job portals and newspapers to see for vacancies coming up time to time.

    Knowledge is power.

  • You are a B.Tech civil engineer and are looking for a course in GIS Banglore or any other place.

    First you can get little more information from free online modules of GIS from such sites (

    Geographic information system (GIS) is much more than mapping and location. Currently there are many applications where GIS is builtin to electronic software packages right from the GPS locator to tracking people for safety to space satellite sensing.

    The job oppourtinities range from private firms, to global firms involved in cartography, urban and traffic planning, travel linked software programs, remote sensing and GPS etc. In hte public sector, you have the options of ISRO, MoD, Indian institute of remove sensing, Survery of Inida and many more.

    The job profle ranges from specialist, operator, consultant, engineer etc.

    So, if age in on your side and you want to have a better paid job why not try a 'formal masters' in this instead of a short course? Since you are looking for a course place with good placement, I have listed the top centers in India.
