The Remote Sensing along with computer based data processing has brought a revolutionary change in the methods of studying, surveying and monitoring the resources. In view of its significance for the Himalayan region the Department of Remote Sensing and GIS Applications was established in 2007 at the Chauras campus of the University.
The Department offers two year Post-graduate course in Remote Sensing and GIS. In view of the direct relevance and usefulness of the course in various development and research areas it offers unique opportunity to the graduate students to get placements in public, private sectors, research and academic institutions. The Department has established a basic infrastructure with state of art facilities to impart education in Remote Sensing.
