Masters Degree Geoinformatics from Symbiosis Pune

Submitted by vicky1248

Being one of the fastest growing domains in the country, Geoinformatics experts are needed across multiple domains; right from healthcare, agriculture and even information technology. This increasing popularity is motivating a greater number of students to take up at geoinformatics at a graduation level. A lot of these students wish to further specialize in the geoinformatics domain however the lack of good colleges makes it extremely difficult for them to pursue their dreams. It was this insight that gave birth to the prestigious Symbiosis Institute of Geoinformatics (SIG) in Pune way back in 2004. In fact, SIG holds the distinction of being amongst the few MSC colleges in the country and the only Symbiosis institute in Pune that allow students to pursue a post graduate degree in Geoinformatics.

Apart from its rigorous academic training, SIG's course also integrates industrial visits, participating in several national level programs thereby ensuring a better learning environment for its students. In line with the legacy of Symbiosis Colleges in Pune, SIG regularly updates its curriculum to help the students keep themselves abreast with the latest development. The institute's year-on-year successful placement records are a clear indication of the paramount efforts invested by SIG and its team of experts.

Symbiosis Pune has been actively involved with the evolution of the educational scenario in the country and SIG is a unique effort under this banner to cater to a niche category of student interested in Geoinformatics. Through its innovative yet holistic learning approach, experienced academic experts and extensive industrial exposure; SIG has been one of the prime contributors to industries wanting to hire trained resources in the geoinformatics domain.

The need for geoinformatics experts is evident more than ever with companies wanting to invest in such analysts to ensure better utilization of the available resources. SIG continues to work in this direction with a mission to become the breeding ground for such experts through its several specialized courses. Apart from Masters in Geoinformatics, the institute also offers customized certificate courses and even PHD programs.

In fact, another added advantage with SIG courses is that due to their relatively niche domain, the SNAP cut off scores for these courses are also not very high. This means students can pursue their MSC dreams even if their SNAP scores are not up to the mark. Internationally geoinformatics is a very popular course making it easier for students to choose however it is a relatively tough job to find such good colleges when looking at the Indian educational scenario. SIG's programs come across as a boon amidst these situations. Apart from academics, SIG also provides support in terms of training and placements. This is a rare feature amongst MSC colleges in India. With the backing of Symbiosis Pune and support of renowned academic experts, SIG has gained acceptance as one of the most well planned MSC courses of the country.

Admissions to SIG courses happen through the SNAP test followed by group discussion and personal interview of students shortlisted through SNAP score and overall eligibility. For those of you who haven't registered yet, there is still a chance, rush to SIG website ( and follow the instructions on:
