Course programme

M.Sc. in Remote Sensing and GIS

Course Content

* The duration of course for the Master degree in Remote Sensing and GIS is divided into Four semesters covering two academic sessions. The first academic session will comprise of first and second semesters and the second academic session of third and fourth semesters. Each semester normally comprises of9O working days.
* The minimum attendance required by a candidate will be as per University rules.
* Each of 1st, lInd and IlIrd Semester are consist of four theory courses and two laboratory courses.Fourth semester shall have two theory courses, one laboratory course and a Project Work. Further, First and Third semesters shall have Remote Sensing Field Work (GPS Survey) and Remote Sensing Field Work (Ground Truth) respectively.
* Each theory examination shall be of three hours duration whereas each practical examination shall be of four hours. Each theory and laboratory course shall consist of 100 marks. For theory papers 80 marks shall be for University examination and 20 marks for internal assessment, while for practicals 50% marks shall be for University Examination and 50% marks for Internal Assessment. Besides this, the Remote Sensing field work of respective First and Third semesters shall consist of 30 marks included in the practicals. The evaluation of Remote Sensing Field Work shall be done internally and the marks awarded included in the practicals shall be sent to the University by the Head/Course Coordinator. The Project Work of IVth semester shall be of 300 marks out of which 250 marks shall be for project report, and 50 marks for the viva-voce. The evaluation of the Project Report will be done by the External and Internal (Supervisor) examiners including the Viva-voce before a committee consisting of Head/Course Coordinator and external as well as internal examiners. The marks of the Project Work shall be sent to the university by the Head/Course Coordinator.
A candidate shall be DECLEARED passed at each semester Examination if he/she obtains:
o At least 36% marks in the aggregate of the paper prescribed for the examination.
o At lease 36% marks in the practical.
* Internal Assessment:
o Theory: Three tests of 10 marks each for each theory course shall be held on the dates and time specified in the Academic calendar and/or by the Head/ Course Coordinator. The sum total of the marks secured in two tests excluding the test in which the student secures the lowest marks shall be counted for the award out of 20 marks for the internal assessment in the course.
o Laboratory: Internal assessment of 25 marks in each laboratory course work will be done on the basis Of regularity and proper maintenance of records, test and viva-voce.

Remote Sensing Field Work: Remote sensing Field work / training is an integral part of this Course. As such, the students of M.Sc. 1st and Ilird Semester are required to undergo for Field Work (2-3 weeks duration) separately in each academic session to acquire comprehensive and detailed field training in various aspects, such as GPS survey, field checking, ground truth studies and visit to various national Remote Sensing laboratories. At the end of the above fieldwork, each student will be required to submit a field report covering all aspects for evaluation. The evaluation based on field work report, and viva - voce shall be done by the Teacher In-Charge of the Field Work and /or Course Coordinator.

Project Work: The subject/topic of the Project Work, related to the problems of Remote Sensing and GIS will be allotted to each student in the beginning of the M.Sc. IVth Semester. The students, in consultation with their respective supervisors, may give their choice of preference of problem /topic / area. However, the decision of the Head/Course Coordinator shall be final. Each student will be required to work independently on the problem assigned including literature consultation, data collection, fieldwork and/or training, laboratory investigations, report writing etc., under the guidance of his/her supervisor. The students will have to submit to the department three typed (bound) copies of his/her work, in the form of Project Report. After the evaluation, a copy of which will be returned to the concerned supervisor and the student separately.
