VISION & MISSION, PEOS & PLOS
IGIS aims to provide its students with a high-quality education that is guided by innovative research in Geoinformatics Engineering and practical applications in unearthing and sustainably utilising natural resources of the country. We foresee our graduates leading and exceling as professionals and entrepreneurs, demonstrating unimpeachable integrity. Our graduates must fill in the gap in government machinery and private sector in capacity to utilise modern tools to relate past and future trends of several national indicators to strategize for natural resources management ensuring sustainable cities, transportation and agriculture.
To provide high quality education in GIS, RS and Geoinformatics Engineering fundamentals, applications, and skills that prepares graduates for successful professional careers.
