Course Summary

The Geospatial Sciences (Building Information Modelling) MSc teaches students the theory, tools and techniques for working with geospatial data, from acquisition to processing to analysis. Students have the opportunity to engage and work with academics and industrial partners on cutting edge research through seminars and a dissertation. The specialist Building Information Modelling (BIM) programme will educate students in the geometric and semantic aspects of BIM and the integrated management of geospatial and BIM-related data. This includes principles of surveying, 3D reality capture, a general overview of technologies related to mapping sciences, geo-information science and 3D geometric modelling.

Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering is an energetic and exciting multidisciplinary department with a tradition of excellence in teaching and research, situated in the heart of London. This exciting new MSc programme continues the department’s long history of excellence in postgraduate geomatics education. Students studying the Geospatial Sciences (Building Information Modelling) MSc will benefit from the department’s excellent research and industry links, including attending our industrial and research seminar series, and carrying out a research project with one of our many industrial partners. Students graduating with a degree in Geospatial Sciences (Building Information Modelling) will be equipped for a diverse range of roles, including BIM professional/officer, data scientist, geospatial software developer and consultant. Graduates go on to work for a variety of organisations including engineering consultancies, geospatial software companies and national mapping agencies. Our students establish strong links with industry through the industrial seminar series and industrial research projects. Additionally, many graduates from our programmes go on to PhD research at UCL or elsewhere. The Geospatial Sciences (Building Information Modelling) MSc is accredited by RICS.

Entry requirements

Students need to have a minimum of an upper second-class UK Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline (such as engineering, architecture, geography, urban planning, mathematics, surveying, marine and earth sciences, computer science) from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Normally only candidates with either a first or upper second-class degree will be accepted, although applicants with a lower second-class degree supported by extensive work experience will also be considered.
