Esri TU Dublin geographic science - techbuzzireland

Esri Ireland, the market leader in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), is working with Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) to inspire prospective third-level students to pursue a career in GIS.

GIS is a technology that creates, analyses, and maps all types of location-based data. A degree in Geospatial Surveying opens the door to work in almost every industry and there are exciting jobs in retail, government, engineering, conservation, renewable energy, architecture, space exploration and even the gaming, film and entertainment industries. GIS isn’t just for geographers. The technology can be used to build interactive web or smartphone apps, integrated with emerging new artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques, or used for awe-inspiring 3D visualisations and virtual reality.

In TU Dublin, students have access to Esri’s innovative digital mapping system, ArcGIS Pro, through the BSc in Geospatial Surveying (Geographic Science). Esri Ireland is also spearheading a new mentoring and executive coaching programme as part of the course, to help final year students prepare themselves for working life and growing their careers.

The use of location-based information has grown exponentially in recent years, leading to a global shortage of people with GIS skills. This course has been designed to provide hands-on experience, where students use Topcon surveying equipment to collect data and Esri’s GIS system to analyse and understand that data. The Geospatial Surveying course at TU Dublin has a 100% employment record because graduates enter the workforce with the valuable skills employers are looking for.

CAO applicants can change their course choices free of charge until Saturday 1st July.
