The Master's Degree in Geomatics Engineering and Geoinformation offers instruction in geographic information technologies applied to the study and management of land and the environment on its various scales, provides theoretical knowledge, and has a highly practical approach to handling equipment and solving problems.
The programme explores data acquisition techniques; the development of GIS applications; geoportals and mobile devices; management of spatial databases; environmental and land use analysis and modelling with remote sensing and lidar; positioning technologies, navigation, surveying and documentation of architectural heritage; and 3D cartographic representation and visualisation.
- Learn to integrate data obtained by land, air and space systems, and to analyze and represent them cartographically..
- Learn to systematically analyze problems related to land management, acquisition and analysis of spatial information and its integration into information systems.
- Learn the foundations and practical development of remote sensing systems and mobile mapping through the use of satellite positioning and navigation techniques.
- Integrate theoretical and practical learning and training in applied research in the field of geomatics and geoinformation, establishing contact with national and international companies and institutions.
The Master's Degree in Geomatics Engineering and Geoinformation is designed for Geomatics and Surveying graduates, considered as the reference degree for admission, or from other degrees within the Earth Sciences and Engineering branch. Two optional itineraries are established based on the above, so those students who have not taken the reference degree shall take courses designed to provide them with the basic knowledge and skills that will be required in subsequent courses and that the students from the reference degree have already acquired.
