All subjects are given equal priority.
This college has given us an unforgettable impression and friends for life. I am grateful to my professors that they helped us certainly to score good grades.

Faculty is just amazing and they stand by you from the first day to the end of the placement days.

The Geoinformatics Department is fantastic journey that not only gives you the academic skills required but prepares you for the real world. Its more than just a way to get a fancy degree, it is about developing a whole new outlook at life. Life at Geoinformatics Department is the time when the teenage years end and we all dive deep into the ocean of new beginnings and possibilities. This golden period better equips you for all the challenges you’ll face in life and creates a strong foundation of knowledge. MSc. Geoinformatics join a Department was one of my best decisions in life. It’s not a place for a people who enjoy college life as imagined; it is a place for people who have dream to achieve something big, something that is not accessible to everyone. Joining Geoinformatics department brought me a step closure to achieve my dreams. I would recommend anyone or everyone who has dream to reach unknown heights and most importantly have the courage to dream BIG……….I very thankful to ISTAR family.

Margaret Sangster, a well-known poet, author and editor, once famously said,” There is nothing half as pleasant as coming home again.’ Especially, if home means the Geoinformatics Department of the Great ISTAR. It gives me great pleasure to say with pride that I have completed my post-graduation from Geoinformatics department.

The high level of education and practical training imparted throughout the course helped me to handle different situations both at personal and professional level. I have acquired a lot of confidence through various platforms provided by the ISTAR such as Workshop, Seminars, International Conferences, Internship with good Stipend from renowned GIS companies, personality development session ,Expert talk, Study Visit where real-time actual work is going on (ISRO,IIRS,BISAG,GIS Corporate Company)etc. giving me the opportunity to present my creativity and talent. Will like to thank all my faculty members for being so supportive throughout my journey at the Geoinformatics department of ISTAR.
