More information 


During this 4-semester Master’s degree program, our students will focus on Geographic Information System (GIS) methods and remote sensing tools applications. They will have the opportunity to join in and participate in research and scientific projects run by IGES. The Institute has research collaborations with global companies and international relations with research groups from Switzerland, Poland, Spain, Slovenia, China, and the US. These projects may provide internships for our students to experience the international atmosphere and scientific skills and knowledge.

The master’s program provides a broad spectrum of GIS, Earth observation, CAD, WebGIS, Database management, GIS programming surface modeling, and 3D visualization-related disciplines for all international students. The program also includes a six-week professional practice at self-selected private and public businesses and companies, however, the practice is also available at the university and at the IGES. By completing the professional practice, the student will gain a broad range of practical and project management skills and knowledge to explain, analyze, interpret and execute various planning programs.
