Tuition Fee : € 13,820 (composite fee) + € 1,815 (research fee)
Location: Wageningen, Netherlands

As a rapidly growing discipline, Geo-information Science combines expertise from the fields of:

  • information and communication technology (ICT);
  • geographical Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing, photogrammetry, GPS and mapping;
  • environmental and social sciences such as land use planning, geography, soil science and communication.
  • The Geo-information Science programme focuses on solving spatial problems (both rural and in the urban fringe) by using GIS and remote sensing. Students are taught methods and techniques in GIS, remote sensing and photogrammetry, and geo-information processes such as data capture, data analysis and data presentation. They are trained to recognise, describe and analyse problems in relevant environmental application fields; this includes training in the development of prototypes. They also learn about the technical and organisational role of geo-information in institutes and companies, how to communicate adequately and keep abreast of scientific and technical developments in geo-information and how to apply these developments in specific fields. Students deal with the latest scientific, technical and organisational aspects such as spatial data infrastructure, spatial modelling, remote sensing and visualisation.

    Graduates of the Geo-information Science programme have scientific competencies that enable them to:

  • formulate, coordinate and lead applied research GI projects, including adequate communication skills;
  • formulate, conduct and communicate fundamental research in geo-information science;
  • select and use GI software to process geo-data sets and develop prototypes;
  • transfer knowledge about the geo-information domain;
  • act as a consultant for GI users in an organisation and advise the management of an organisation about the adequacy of existing GI facilities and their use.
  • Admission Requirements:
    in information and communication technology (ICT), land use planning, land and water management, forestry, geography, soil science, or other related environmental and social sciences, (have background in the spatial, environmental, and social sciences, or geo-informatics).
