Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) under Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Department of Space, Govt. of India is a premier training and educational institute established in 1966 and committed to prepare Professionals in the field of Remote Sensing, Geoinformatics and GPS Technology for Natural Resources, Environment and Disaster Management. The Institute is also host for Centre for Space Science & Technology Education in Asia and the Pacific (affiliated to the United Nations) and conducts International Training Programmes.

IIRS, Dehradun has potential candidates who can suit your organization to work as Data Scientist /GIS Engineer/Geomatics Engineer or in similar job profile which requires RS and GIS operational skills. Our academic curriculum is regularly updated to ensure that the students are imparted with latest knowledge to suit globalized working environment. We spare no efforts to groom our students, not only in their chosen discipline, but also broaden their mindsets and create positive attitudes thus equipping them with all qualities to make them an asset to whichever institute/organization they work with. IIRS contacts various companies for placements of their students enrolled in long term courses. Placements requirements are shared among students throughout year as soon as advertised.

The training and education programmes conducted by the Institute include: i) Post-graduate Diploma (PGD) in Remote Sensing and GIS in ten disciplines, ii) M.Tech. (RS & GIS) in nine disciplines conducted in collaboration with Andhra University, Visakhapatnam and iii) M.Sc. and PG Diploma courses in Geoinformatics conducted in collaboration with the Faculty of Geo-information Science & Earth Observation (ITC) of the University of Twente (UT), The Netherlands. The institute also conducts various other courses, namely i) Certificate programmes (including NNRMS-ISRO sponsored programme for University faculty), ii) Awareness programmes, and iii) Special on-demand/tailor-made courses.

The Placement Brochure of includes the skills acquired by IIRS students through training/education and project work that they have carried out as a part of their Course Curricula. I am sure that the Placement Brochure shall be helpful to the Geospatial Industry, Academia and other Institutions to pick the talent and also provide opportunity to the course participants for their placement.

I wish a splendid future for our students.

Director, IIRS
