About

At the Namibia University of Science and Technology we offer a bachelor degree in Geoinformation Technology. 

Overview

The Geoinformation Technology (GIT) section is the division under the department of Geo-Spatial Sciences and Technology within the Faculty of Natural Resources and Spatial Sciences. Established in 2007, the section hosts the Bachelor of Geoinformation Technology (Level 7), the Bachelor of Geoinformation Technology Honours (Level 8), a Masters of Spatial Science (Level 9 – Research Masters) and a Masters in Geoinformation Science and Earth Observation (Level 9 – Taught Masters).

The Namibia University of Science and Technology’s strategic plan of 2005 recommended the development of a programme in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing, instead of offering different GIS and remote sensing related courses within other programmes. 

A stakeholders’ workshop was organized together with the National Public Service Commission through LUX-Development to assess and collect the industrial GIS readiness for a localized GIS academic programme in Namibia. The programme initially targeted employees in the public service at the National Planning Commission to contribute to the newly established national spatial statistics of Namibia, and employees who could not attend full-time education because of their work responsibility. During the year 2009, the programme started to be offered full-time mode for students having just completed high school.

Career possibilities 

  • The demand for GIS, remote sensing and earth observation programmes has since grown in Namibia and brought the introduction of Level 8 and Level 9 programme, which will be complemented with a Level 10 in the near future.
  • The section has a remarkable staff complement of diverse experts, with qualifications in GIS, Remote Sensing, Geography, Natural Resources, Geomatics and related sciences. We take pride in the expertise of our staff member as they comprise both national and international experts.
