Master of Geodesy and Cartography, speciality Geoinformatics

Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences

This course is intended for 2019/2020 academic year

Duration: 1,5 years (3 semesters)

Professional title: Master

Study Profile: general academic

Start Month: February

Semestral Fee: 1600 EUR


The second grade studies in the area of Geoinformatics are designed to gain advanced knowledge in technology, geodesy and cartography. Therefore the course is intended for engineers and land-surveyors. The course aims at developing high qualifications in the field of GIS system usage in science, administration and business. The students through the hands-on experience in GIS laboratories will be able to build their own applications in the GIS systems and modern implementations which access spatial information by the use of Internet.

What will you study?

1st semester

During the first semester the student attends basic courses in applied mathematics, advanced methods of observations, cartographic modeling, digital image processing physical geodesy, geodynamics, deformation measurements and analysis, satellite measurements techniques, real estate market economy, basics of management, finances and banking, real estate appraising.

2nd and 3rd semester

Second and third semesters focus on specialization subjects such as: cartography modelling, digital picture shaping, deformation analysis and measurements, geoinformatics, spatial data bases, methods of data exploration, GIS systems designing and programing, Internet technologies, elective subjects, e.g. satellite navigation, digital photogrammetry, construction industry costing, geodetic law, basics of real estate market economy, thematic map edition, topographic map edition, geodesy in communication routes construction.

In what form will classes be conducted?

Classes are conducted in the form of lectures, laboratory, seminars and field classes.

How will you be assessed?

Semester credits based on obtained course credits form grades of mid-term and end-term tests and exams held in oral or written form. In the case of some subjects tests and exams can have practical and theoretical parts.

The final grade comprises of exam and practical classes grades. Student’s knowledge, practical skills, ability of completing particular tasks, team work and work management are assessed in the course process.

How many ECTS points do you get?

Standard of education in Geoinformatics provides no less than 90 ECTS credits for 3 semester course of study.

What qualifications and powers will you get during studies?

A graduate of the second cycle has the ability to use advanced knowledge in the field of technology, geodesy and cartography and is prepared to manage teams, make independent decisions and to deal with the basic legal and administrative problems of economic units. Moreover, he/she is prepared to work in geodetic, cartographic and similar companies, in national and local administration as well as in education institutions. Education gained in the course of studies make it possible for the graduates to apply for professional certificates in the field of geodetic situation-altitude measurements, real estate division, preparation of documentation for legal purposes, basic geodetic measurements, geodetic service of investments, geodetic management of rural and forest areas, mapping, photogrammetry and teledetection.

Where will you be able to work after graduation?

The graduate can work in geodesy or geoinformatics centres and in construction planning organizations. Job prospects include placements in the governmental organizations and in real estate business. An alumnus can work as GIS research manager, geoinformatics consultant, geoinformatics project manager or GIS engineer. There is a possibility to continue the educational process and academic research on PhD programmes.
