Geomatics involve the acquisition, management and analysis of phenomena with a spatial reference. Spatial analysis finds applications in many areas, such as health, the environment, urban planning, geology, archaeology and agronomy. This programme aims to provide you with knowledge in spatial analysis for environmental applications. It includes studies in geographical information systems (GIS), remote sensing and physical geography. Models and theories for understanding the Earth’s climate and ecosystems are integrated with knowledge for collecting environmental information using remote sensing, storing the information in databases and theories behind GIS.
Courses and number of credits: Core courses of the programme are Geographical Information Systems 1 (15), Geographical Information Systems 2 (15), Spatial Analysis (7.5), Internet GIS (7.5), Satellite Remote Sensing (15), Algorithms and GIS (7.5), Geographical Databases (7.5). For students that already have a strong background in this field, elective courses, e.g. Programming (15), Climate Change & Impact on Environment (15), Global Ecosystem Dynamics (15) and Greenhouse Gases and Biogeochemical Cycles (15) could be alternatives to the core courses. The programme ends with a Master’s degree project (30).
Graduates from the programme will be able to work as GIS and environmental specialists in public and private organisations. The programme is also suited for students interested in research careers.
