O que eu aprenderei?

Geoinformatics engineers are usually present when crucial decisions in our society are prepared. Analysis and visualizations of accurate geographic information typically reveal essential information for decision-making. This degree is an excellent choice if you want to tackle big societal challenges such as climate change, security and urban development, or if you dream of creating advanced mobile applications.

Geoinformatics is an integral part of our everyday lives. Location, location, location. Your mobile device continuously knows your whereabouts. Check the weather or navigate your car, and location is again the key word. Shoot aerial video with your drone or jump into virtual or augmented reality – once again, you encounter geoinformatics.

Geoinformatics engineers are the ones who measure and analyse big data. They know how to visualise complex geospatial problems or phenomena and turn them into beautiful maps, infographics and applications. They understand the spatial dimensions of Earth as well as her full complexity as a living, moving and changing planet. Geoinformatics is an interdisciplinary, cutting-edge engineering science, co-operating with many other fields of study.

Study programme

Within the Master’s programme in Geoinformatics you can focus on studies in one or more fields, such as geodesy (navigation and positioning), photogrammetry, laser scanning, remote sensing, or geoinformation technologies. More detailed information on these fields can be found from the programme flyer.

You are welcome to apply to our Master’s programme if you have a Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field, and skills in mathematics, programming, and an interest in applying computer sciences to geoinformatics. All courses are given in English.
