Program Description

Master in Geoinformatics

Technical University of Ostrava

Study Branch

Geodesy, Cartography, and Geoinformatics

Branch Profile

The aim is to prepare graduates who master professional subject matters from the sphere of geoinformatics and geoinformation technologies at the level that enables the creation of new applications of geoinformation technologies, project management and the management and administration of geoinformation systems, the implementation of the advanced analysis, and search for new ways to solve different spatial problems. These will be applicable in both the state and local governments as well as in the private sector (manager of the utilities, transport undertakings, companies involved in the collection and distribution of geodata, etc.).

Key Learning Outcomes

Knowledge

Graduates are equipped with the knowledge from the area of digital processing of remote sensing data, planning of applications of geoinformation technologies, advanced methods of gathering, storing, analyzing, and publishing of data, modelling and simulation of geosciences problems, and from the area of entrepreneurship and management.

Skills

The graduate can plan and manage the application of geoinformation technologies and large databases of geodata, creating algorithms for the spatial problems solving, apply advanced statistical methods of processing of data, collaborate in creating models and simulation of spatial processes and in the use of geoweb technology.

General Competencies

The graduate can act in the role of the commercial agent, analyst for the needs of applications development and as geodata analyst, manager of large scale applications and databases of data, geoweb technology manager (mapservers and servers of geoweb services).

Occupational Profiles of Graduates

This study branch is ideal for students who would like to gain detailed knowledge about geoinformatics and geoinformation technologies. Students will enlarge their knowledge about a group of current geoinformation technologies and advanced analytical methods. The emphasis is put on technical matters and thus majority of subjects are focused on programming, algorithmization, advanced analytical methods, modelling and simulation. The study branch is organised to offer the students the possibility to find a job in a company/institution working with spatial data.
