Master programs provides the same title for the degree - the Master. Postgraduate studies such as Masters of Science are shortened MSc. The Master of Science in Management program or the Master of Science of Management education are postgraduate programs in common management. This means that students receive an academic education with depth of reflection and abstraction. Masters usually can be classified as Master of Science (MSc) or the popular Master of Arts (MA). The Master of Science (MSc) usually is given for successfully achieving postgraduate programs with a science or technical point of convergence.

As a branch of both science and engineering, geoinformatics can look at the study of land and water surfaces for the purpose of collecting, presenting, and analyzing data. Often requiring a bachelor’s degree for entry into the field, geoinformatics programs range from the associate to doctoral levels.

MScLandscape Ecology with Geographical Information Systems

This programme is designed to equip graduates with the knowledge and technical skills required to fulfil a professional role involving the collection, management, analysis, modelling, manipulation and display of landscape ecology, land use planning, and environmental conservation datasets using Geographical Information Systems (GIS).

In both the UK and overseas the concept of landscape-scale land management has gained acceptance over the last decade. The implementation of environmental conservation policies and strategies based on a landscape ecology approach is increasingly dependent on spatial data that are managed and manipulated within a GIS. As a result, the Ecological Skills Gap Project has identified a clear need for ecologists with experience of GIS and for GIS specialists with an understanding of the environmental data they are being asked to manage and manipulate within a GIS....

*Note that this is a European Joint Master's Programme

Geo-information science and earth observation for environmental modelling and management are essential for development issues all around the world. Spatial data, such as maps and global databases, as well as satellite imagery, play a central role in the search for reliable environmental information for scenario studies and viable policies. Knowledge and skills in this field will, therefore, continue to be crucial for industry, government and NGOs. The programme runs for 22 months and is taught by world-class faculties in five countries: Iceland, the UK, Sweden, Poland and the Netherlands. While spending time in at least two of the five countries and studying in a multicultural environment, you will gain valuable insights into the academic, social and cultural diversity of Northern and Central Europe. On graduation, you will receive a multiple MSc degree from the consortium universities. There is a great demand for Geo-information Science and Earth Observation for Environmental Modelling and Management (GEM) graduates in the international arena. A large number of the GEM graduates are accepted in PhD degree programmes. The programme has been running for 10 years and more than 120 students have graduated.... [-]

Geomatics involves 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.

Overview

Geographical information management is an exciting and rapidly growing branch of information technology (IT), incorporating satellite remote sensing, aerial photography, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS), to derive information which is essential for the management of the earth’s resources at local, national and global scales.

The management of geographic information is now integral to decision making processes at local, national and international scales. Globally, the rate of spatial data capture has never been greater. The data requires appropriate management to ensure quality, correct usage and robust solutions derived from the data. As one of the UK’s AgriTech centres, we are applying these principles in the realm of digital agriculture to increase the efficiency and sustainability of the agriculture sector. Specialists are required to generate, manage and advise on data use in both the private and public sectors. The Geographical Information Management MSc provides the training required for these specialists.... [-]
