Geoinformatics, Master of Science (Technology)

Geoinformatics engineers are always present when crucial decisions in our society are being made. The degree is an excellent choice if you want to deal with global challenges such as climate change, security and urban development, or if you dream of creating advanced mobile applications.

Geoinformatics is an integral part of our everyday lives. Use your mobile device and it constantly wants to know your whereabouts. Check the weather forecast or switch on your car navigation device, and location is again the key word. Shoot aerial video with your drone or jump into virtual or augmented reality – once again, you encounter geoinformatics.

Geoinformatics engineers are the ones who measure and analyse big data. They know how to visualise complex geospatial problems and turn them into beautiful maps, infographics and applications. They understand the spatial dimensions of Earth as well as its full complexity as a living, moving and changing planet.

Where can you work in the future?

This curriculum will prepare you for key positions in academia and industry. You may find yourself working for private, public or non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

Some of our alumni create decision-making tools. They monitor the global environment and help find solutions to problems like the energy crisis or the uneven distribution of natural resources.

Many of the former students are involved in the business world. They may, for instance, manage logistics chains or pinpoint the best location for a new shop. Others develop software for autonomous cars. There are many areas where their expertise is needed, such as service design, robotics and industrial control, communication technology, mobile application development, gamification, 3D modelling and point clouds, just to name a few.

Maisteriohjelma tarjoaa opetusta esimerkiksi geoinformatiikassa, kaukokartoituksessa ja laserskannauksessa. Opiskelijat saavat kokemusta teoreettisista ja käytännön taidoista sekä kehittävät akateemisia ominaisuuksiaan, kuten ongelmanratkaisukykyä ja analyyttistä ajattelutapaa.
