*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.
