The Master of Science program in Geoinformatics at Aalborg University, Copenhagen is directed at students with a bachelor’s 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.
