IGIS is one of the four institutes functioning under the umbrella of School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (SCEE). All resources of IGIS are augmented by SCEE i.e. faculty, laboratories, library and transport, thus making it a very potent institute. IGIS has the distinction of offering for the first time in Pakistan, Master’s programme in the field of Remote Sensing (RS) & Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Keeping in line with its tradition, it has again been the first in the country to offer undergraduate degree programme in GIS and PhD in RS & GIS. The discipline is though new, but its importance has been recognised all over the world. As of today, many of the top universities of the world are offering degrees relating to spatial data.The importance of Geospatial data in virtually all fields of life has been realised in Pakistan. The avenues of employment are also increasing rapidly along with realisation of the importance of spatial data. This will ensure optimal utilisation of resources in minimum time.
