    Those completing this Degree are preferred for jobs to GIS and remote
    sensing in Central & State Government Organizations.

    Career in
    Remote Sensing & GIS

    Remote
    Sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon
    without making physical contact with the object. In modern uses, the term
    generally refers to the use of aerial sensor technologies to detect and
    classify objects on earth by means of propagated signals making it
    possible to collect data on dangerous or inaccessible areas. Latest
    applications of remote sensing like monitoring deforestation, glacial
    features in Arctic and Antarctic regions and depth sounding of coastal
    and ocean depth have made this science most popular. 

    Eligibility : Graduates of any discipline Duration : Two
    years

    Award : Master of Science with specialization in Remote
    Sensing and GIS shall be awarded to all the successful candidates by The
    Global Open University, Nagaland.
