Master programme Applied Geoinformatics (E)

Content and focus of the degree programme:

The qualifications gained in the master's programme build upon subject-related and methodological basics of spatial sciences, such as geography, and require basic knowledge and skills in the practice of applied geoinformatics. The degree programme conveys conceptually and methodically well-founded and application-oriented skills, specific ways of thinking, analytical methods and techniques as well as Problem resolution skills in central areas of geoinformatics, especially: geodata collection and cartographical communication; data modelling and geodatabases; representation and analysis or simulation of dynamic systems; methods of analysis in the entire spectrum of geoinformatics, etc.

Definition of the field of studies

Applied Geoinformatics deals with the extraction of information from spatially organised data with the objective of supporting final decisions in society, economy and envrionment. Spatial data is collected systematically, processed and subsequently used for the technical and organisational development of various information products and relevant systems.


The master's programme consists of a total of seven modules. Module 1 serves to bring the knowledge of students from different fields of study up to the same level. Modules 2-7 contain specific knowledge and skills in systems analysis, application development, geoinformation management, theories and methods in geographic information science and applied geoinformatics. Three big integrative project assignments promote problem-oriented and project-oriented learning. Complementary to the study programme students have to compile a personal portfolio which represents an individual display of the students' results from their university studies and their own practice. In addition to the elective subjects that can be chosen freely students also have to complete a six-week compulsory external work placement. The degree programme concludes with a master's thesis which has to be defended and an examination in two subjects before an examination board.
