Geo-information and spatial planning is the application of information science to geography, geology and other geo-sciences. It deals with spatial information of any kind in terms of nature, classification, structure, etc.
It focuses on improving existing and developing new technologies that are used to collect, analyse, distribute, interpret, transform, visualize, etc. data about space of any sort. A big contribution to this field was brought by the development of informatics and the tools it provides for data manipulation. Informatics is an important component of the geo-information and spatial planning discipline and good knowledge and skills in this field are, if not necessary, at least a great advantage.
As space is becoming more and more scare, the issue of good special planning is delicate and highly specialised professionals are needed to analyse, develop and plan spatial strategies all over the world, for a sustainable development of the human society. Research Institutes, governmental agencies, public authorities and private consultancies are just a few of the potential employer of a graduate in the field of geo-information and spatial planning.
The Master of Science program in Geoinformatics at Aalborg University, Copenhagen is directed at students with a bachelor’s degree in surveying, land management, urban planning, environmental planning, geography or study programs with similar contents interested in understanding the concepts and obtaining the necessary skills to manage various kinds of digital geographic information.
The past as an inspiration for your future.
Master of Science in Environmental and Land Planning Engineering provides an education focused on the broad range of professional capabilities and expertise required to deal with and address adequate engineering frameworks for the sustainable utilization of natural resources and man made infrastructures.
USQ’s Graduate Certificate of Engineering Science (Surveying) is ideal if you have a three year engineering degree and you want to extend your knowledge in surveying. You don’t even need work experience to commence your postgraduate studies in this degree.
A Postgraduate Certificate in Engineering (Road Engineering) has been designed exclusively for engineers who want enhance their skills and knowledge in the growth field of road engineering.
The international Master study programme "Forest Information Technology (FIT)" is an interdisciplinary education offer with its main focus on environmental information technologies (IT) such as geographic information systems, remote sensing, database management, forest ecosystem modelling and management and landscape research. But the the majority of modules is related to IT fundamentals and forest and environment related applications of IT.
The University of Haifa's International Master's Degree in Maritime Civilizations offers students an exceptional opportunity to explore the history, archeology and fabric of maritime societies, as well as the natural environment in which they developed and currently exist.
The topics covered in this course will provide participants with an in-depth knowledge of geo-information technology.
Our proposed M.A. program is of high standards, dedicated to training of students in a wide variety of topics related to prehistory, environmental archaeology, subsistence, past adaptations to changing environments, and the varied exact and natural sciences involved in the research of such topics.
Give your career a boost in the mining, minerals and resource industry. Get specialised training in the processes, scientific and engineering aspects of mineral extraction. You will develop the essential practical skills and extensive industry knowledge to get your career on the right track. Graduates are able to work as metallurgists, in metal recovery, smelters or even in research and technology development. The possibilities in this dynamic sector are wide open for you.
The removal of earth containing mineralized ores causes stress in the rock and hence stability of the mine itself is continually changing. These changes can be rapid and difficult to detect. Geomechanics is the science dealing with the design of structures in rock. Upon completion of the program, the graduate will be better prepared to understand complex issues in rock mass behaviors. Rock Mechanics.
