It is a matter of pleasure for us that the Centre of Excellence for NRDMS in Uttarakhand (established with the help of financial and technical support of the Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India) is presently working as a National Centre of higher education where 60 students from eight different states of our country are pursuing their Master’s Degree in Remote Sensing and GIS – a newly inducted self employment/ employment oriented hi-tech programme. Presently our alumni are working in different highly prestigious National Research and Development Institutions, in different State Government Departments and in highly reputed Industries and GIS companies located in different parts of the our country.
The objective of the Centre is to build hi-tech education and applied research compatibility in Remote Sensing and GIS for various stakeholders, viz., academia, governance, industry and civil society.
I wish all the best to the researchers, students of the Centre with regard to its newly launched research programme on development of Uttarakhand Geoportal and education programme on Remote Sensing and GIS.
