Do you want to use modern geographic information technology to solve real world problems?
The Master of Science program in Geoinformatics at Aalborg University, Copenhagen, is directed at students with a bachelors degree in surveying, land management, urban planning, environmental planning, geography or study programs with similar contents interested in understanding the concepts and obtaining the necessary skills to manage various kinds of digital geographic information. Basic knowledge about geographic information and information technology is required for enrolment but we will take you further and disseminate spatial information to build computer based representations of the real world leading to development of technologies and methods for planners and resource managers.
Thus our goal is to introduce graduate students to the potentials of modern geographic information technology to strengthen their professional approach to solving real world problems in their specific field of interest. Based on traditional problem based learning methods, the students will be introduced to geoinformatics by participating in project works (50%) and course works (50%).
Approximately half of the courses will be examined individually with a dedicated curriculum. The rest are given as a supplement to the project oriented work being evaluated through the project.
It takes two years to attain a master degree in Geoinformatics, and during this time you will meet a wide range of teachers who will present you with new knowledge in key areas.
The educational programme is internationally oriented, and attracts Danish as well as international students. Furthermore the educational programme offers the opportunity of an internship or/and an external study as well as study trips inside and outside Denmark during the 3rd semester.Job and career
Graduates from Geoinformatics are needed all over the world. As GIS experts they work with developing and maintaining geographical information systems in IT-based environments for private companies, utilities, local and national governments, etc.
The Msc programme in Geoinformatics at Aalborg University, Copenhagen, is divided into four semesters running respectively from September to January and from February to June (January and June partly reserved for exams).
It takes two years (120 ECTS credits) of full-time study to earn a masters degree in Geoinformatics. During the masters programme you are offered a wide range of exciting courses and projects:
- Geospatial Information Technology
- Spatial Data Infrastructure
- Land Administration
- Project: GI Technology and Information Systems
- Geocomputation and Spatial Decision Support Systems
- Project: GeoDesign
- Internship abroad or in Denmark, study stay at another Danish or foreign university, project work or long final project (60 ECTS credits)
- At the 4th semester which is course-free you prepare a final thesis within a self-elected topic. The masters thesis is the crowning glory and quite generally aims at documenting your professional academic competence.
