Definition of the field of studies

The Geospatial Technologies programme teaches how to describe and analyse the world. It combines the methods of geography and geodesy in the fields of geographical information processing and remote sensing.

Exams

The master's programme includes on one hand compulsory subjects dealing with data acquisition and management, image processing methods, presentation and visualisation of GIS and remote sensing data as well as compulsory elective subjects which are closely related to the master’s programme in Geospatial Technologies and which can in principle be studied at all Austrian and non-Austrian universities. It, however, is recommended to study e.g. subjects such as geophysics, geoinformation, digital cartography, regional planning, satellite geodesy, software technology, special high-altitude mountain geography and climate geography. Moreover, elective subjects are to be studied, they can be chosen freely from all courses of all recognised Austrian and non-Austrian universities. Courses in foreign languages, communication technology, philosophy of science, technological impact assessment as well as women’s and gender research are recommended. The topic of the master’s thesis must be chosen from the examination subjects Acquisition and management, analysis, presentation and visualisation. The examination before a committee, which completes the programme, consists of the presentation of the master’s thesis, an examination in the field of the master’s thesis and an examination in a subject which is immediately related to the master’s thesis. A study period abroad is expressly recommended.
