M.Sc. in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation
(Specialisation/ Domain: Geoinformatics)

Course Setting

The Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation (specialisation/domain: Geoinformatics) is offered within the framework of Joint Education Programme (JEP) of the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) and the Faculty of Geo-information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) of the University of Twente (UT), The Netherlands.
The course is of 18 months duration. Students follow part of the course at IIRS (Modules 1-10 and 17-23, i.e. 13 ½ months) and a part at the Faculty ITC, The Netherlands (Modules 11-16, i.e.4 ½ months). This is an accelerated course of 18 months with a study load (118 ECTS or European Credits) that would normally take two years to complete. This achieved in two ways: (i) the usual university vacations are not observed and (ii) the per-week study load (48 hours) is high in comparison with the usual university system. According to Dutch Law, one credit represents 29 hours of study and 60 credits represent one year of full-time study.
Following successful completion of the course, the students receive the M.Sc. degree from ‘University of Twente’ with the title: “Master of Science in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation.” The ‘diploma supplement’ containing details of marks obtained and information about the course is provided along with the M.Sc. degree.

Course Objectives and Learning Outcomes

Objectives

To develop a critical understanding of appropriate tools; exposure to new methods and techniques; gaining competence in developing tools for the acquisition, processing,transformation, analysis, modelling, storage and presentation of spatial data; using geo- information in identifying and responding to development problems and in drafting development policies; developing research skills to design and undertake research and development projects in various fields of geoinformatics.

Learning outcomes

On completion of the course, participants are able to:
  • Analyse geo-information problems encountered in professional practice and develop appropriate methods for studying and/or solving the problems;
  • Choose and possibly develop appropriate methods for geospatial framewok data collection and processing;
  • Use programming languages;
  • Use geo-information science and earth observation technology to generate, integrate, analyse and visualise spatial data;
  • Understand and apply the principles of databases and data models and to use database query languages;
  • Formulate and carry out independent research in the general field of Geinformatics, possibly as part of a multi-disciplinary research and development project;
  • Communicate and defend Geoinformatics-based research methods and findings.

Eligibility Criteria and Admission Process

The candidates applying for the course should have the following qualification:
M.Sc./M.Tech. in Physics/ Appl. Physics/ Electron./ Math./ Appl. Math./ Stat./ IT/ Comp. Sci./Geology/ Geophysics/ Geo-Engg./ Agriculture/ Forestry/ Urban and Reg. Plann. or any Natural/Env. Sci., OR Master in Geog. (having B.Sc. in science subjects), OR B.E./ B.Tech./B.Sc.(Engg.)/ Graduate (with four year deg. course) in Civil Engg./ Electron. & Comm./Comp. Sci./ Comp.
