The Department of Geoinformatics at the University of Salzburg has teamed with Olomouc University and the Université Bretagne Sud to develop an integrated joint European MSc study program for students aiming at a top qualification in Geoinformatics with a focus on Remote Sensing, Application Development and Geovisualisation / Geovisual Analytics.
This two year full-time integrated Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) Programme aims at qualifying individuals to lead initiatives, projects and institutions translating Copernicus services into management decisions within a broader Digital Earth vision.
‘EM-CDE’ will be offered as a joint, English language program from the academic year 2019/20, with applications accepted from early 2019. Currently, qualified candidates with a background in a ‘spatial’ discipline and experience in digital technologies are welcome to pre-register their interest and will receive detailed instructions as soon as applications for admission and scholarships are opened.
Recently, the consortium leaders met with partner institutions for a preparation workshop in Salzburg, implementing the final steps of curriculum integration before selected students can start with a first year of studies in Salzburg. After completion of year 1, alternative tracks are offered in France and Czech, leading to a final Master thesis with internships supported by associated partner institutions worldwide.
