Institute of Geo-Information & Earth Observation

Message of the Director  

It is immense pleasure to take responsibility of leading the Institute of Geo-Information and Earth Observation (IGEO). The IGEO is striving hard to contribute effectively to produce quality human resource by developing a sustainable Geo-Informatics education system to meet the technology needs of the country. We provide conducive learning environment to promote high quality Remote Sensing and GIS education to produce dedicated, hardworking and learned graduates. Hardworking students, learned faculty, dedicated staff and committed administration are our strength leading us to an excellent place among institutions of high repute. The uniqueness of IGEO amongst other RE&GIS institutes is that we are being hosted at PMAS-Arid Arid Agriculture University. The agriculture is backbone of the country; therefore, our students and faculty can also work on providing RS&GIS based solutions through their research. This makes our research a demand driven and of high socioeconomic importance as we can provide IT based models and decision support systems. We have strong commitment to make our institute's graduates employable by inculcating skills, appetite of hard work and eagerness to accept professional challenges so that they can excel in their professional careers.
