Message from Principal

GIS is one of the four institutes functioning under the umbrella of School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (SCEE). All resources of IGIS are augmented by SCEE in terms of faculty, laboratories, library and transport, thus making it a very potent institute.

IGIS has the distinction of offering for the first time in Pakistan Master’s program in the field of Remote Sensing (RS) & Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Keeping in line with its tradition it has again been the first in the country to offer undergraduate degree program in Geoinformatics and PhD in RS & GIS. The discipline is though new, but its importance has been recognized all over the world. As of today many of the top universities of the world are offering degrees relating to spatial data.

The importance of geo spatial data in virtually all fields of life has been realized in Pakistan. The avenues of employment are also increasing rapidly along with realization of the importance of spatial data. This will ensure optimal utilization of resources in minimum time.
