“Because the time needs smart urbanization not just urbanization”

Geographic Information Systems, GIS, is a one of the fastest evolving  technology involving the study of spatial (location) and non spatial  (attribute) data and relationships between them. Because the work of  urban planners fundamentally involves the study of location and spatial  relationships, thus employers are increasingly expecting urban planning  programs to possess a working knowledge of GIS.  
Our primary goal is to ensure that by completing the course the student  will possess the fundamental GIS skills valued by today’s employers.
The course strives to provide a balance between the "how-to" of using   GIS softwares and explain "why" the need of GIS by explaining the roles  GIS technology playing wonderful role in analyzing local and regional  (even global) problems.


  • Students of Planning  or related discipline(Planning and Architecture) with Basic computer  knowledge.  

  • Students of  Civil Engineering.

  • Working professionals in related field.


The curriculum is designed according to current industry standards.

  • GIS and its application in planning


After the completion of course the student will able to :-

  • Have in depth knowledge of map making.

  • Understand various Geoinformatic softwares, its tool and applications.

  • Work on Geospatial data and its analysis.

  • Handle GPS and collect GCPs.

  • Understand Remote Sensing techniques for collecting Remote Sensing data and work on it.

  • Have knowledge of Photogrammetry and LIDAR.

  • Work on 2D/3D drafting software.

  • Create Layers and generate on web.

  • Learn making project proposals and project execution.

  • Get placed in corporate MNC / Domestic organizations and also work as free lancer or get project of their own.


  • Registration Fee : Rs. 1500/-

  • Course Fee = INR 15,000/-.
