The three-semester Masters program targets holders of Bachelor degrees in application areas of Geographic Information (GI), e.g., environmental planning, regional planning, geography, logistics, transportation, marketing, energy provision, computer science. GI is a rapidly growing market, lacking qualified GI personnel and offering excellent career chances.

  • High-level academic achievements
  • Expertise in GI application areas
  • Professional or other experience in application areas that can benefit from GI technologies
