Hi Guys,
This is to all SIG aspirants. I asked some basic doubts regarding careers in geoinformatics, Placements, etc. to the Director of SIG and he replied me thru E-mail.
Some of the replies are below,
Careers In SIG. I take it that what you meant is careers in the GIS after completion of the course. It is an emerging field. There is acute shortage of appropriately trained and qualified human resourse in the GIS Industry. The awareness of applicability of the GIS in almost all fields is dawning upon the Governments, Corporate Sectors and the Private industries.You may name any field with requirement of correct sifting and analysing massive data, which would be required to make correct decisions, and you would invariably find application of Geoinformatics in it. In this connection I may proudly mention that this year we have had 100% project -cum -placement for our very first batch.
Future of this Field. In view of globalization process, our country will have to match the technologies of the developed and the developing nations. Geoinformatics technology is being widely used and is rapidly developing in the global scenario. Therefore, like IT, the future of this field is undoubtedly bright.
Expected SNAP Cut Off. Process is on and the acceptance of applications being kept open till 20th February 2006. It will be announced when the call letters for the GD and PI are issued.
Placement Package. It depends on the performance of the individual student during the course and also in the interview and selection during the placement process. During the project -cum- placement , which has something like probation / trainee status , students can expect stipend from some reputed companies, However it is up to the individual companies to offer stipend. Fortunately this year, majority of the companies have offered stipend to our students.The anticipated/ expected package after six months could start from minimum 1.5 lakh per annum onwards.Please note that this would depend upon the Company making the offers and the proven capability of the student during his training/ probation period. Due to current shortage of trained personnel in this field, we know that there are individuals who have risen sharpely in the pay package within short period of two to three years depending upon their skills, dedication, experience and performance.
Infrastructure. Please refer to the prospectus. We are equipped with the state-of the art soft wares and adequate infrastructure for training and imparting instructions in this technical field. The faculty is experienced and seasoned in their respective fields. You may like to visit our web site or may like to visit the campus to view it for yourself.
Hostel. Currently hostel facility for 100% students is not available. We have a few seats in the Symbiosis Boys Hostel alloted to us on the pro-rata basis by the Society. These are alloted to the selected students on first -cum -first served basis, with preference given to students from outside Pune. However, I may mention that Pune has a very large population of students coming from outside the town and the State. There are arrangements for hiring flats by group of students or paying guest like arrangements. The senior students guide the juniors in this regard. You may like to contact the senior students to discuss these issues when you come for the GD and PI.
I hope this will clarify your queries.
Designations we get in companies after placement:The companies who have accepted our first batch students as trainees are going to give them designations such as GIS Engineer, GIS Analyst, Project manager, Team leader, Remote sensing specialist, Quality analyst and Techno marketing team leader/manager. The designation would vary from company to company and individual to individual based on the nature of the job and the domain expertise.
Regarding HIgher Studies: There are institutes such as IIT, NRSA, ISRO, SAC where students can do Ph D in the domain specialisation; viz, Remote sensing, Image processing , Photogrammetry and so on. So far there is no specific Ph D in Geoinformatics as this is a new subject.
Please also note that this is an autonomous institute as on date. Process to acquire acredition from appropriate authorities is on.
Should you still have any more queries or doubts , you are welcome to contact this institute on telephones 020-2581-1290 / 91 and contact the Dean, faculty or the Course Co-ordinator.
*All the above replies are given to me by Director(SIG) to my personal email ID. I have just copied and pasted it here. So that, all aspirants can get a idea about the institute.
Take care,
Arun Raj T
