Programme information

Programme information from your programme director

The Master in Geomatic programme is a one-year (60 cr.) on-campus programme given in English. The geomatics programme consists of one thesis project and nine taught courses: three at basic level and six at advanced level.

The three courses given at basic level have two purposes. Subjects given at basic level offers the opportunity for students who have insufficient knowledge in the other sub-disciplines of Geospatial information science to continue at advanced level to broaden their knowledge in the subject’s disciplines. The six remaining courses at advanced level mainly deal with advanced spatial analysis and research preparation for the thesis project that ends the studies.
