Spatial Information Management Carinthia University Of Applied Sciences

Last Updated on August 28, 2023

The Master degree program “Spatial Information Management” is a two year graduate program that qualifies students for a wide variety of careers in various areas of GIS. Graduates of “Spatial Information Management” provide fast, up-to-date and accurate integration, analysis, simulation and visualization of the relevant spatial situation to stakeholders and decision makers.

The SIM faculty has built an extensive network to the GIS professionals’ community and connects its students to high profile institutions of research, development and academics. With applied research for solving real life problems as the core of effective education, it follows that most of the thesis projects are conducted in cooperation with partners in public administration, academia and the private sector. Students can pursue their interests by choosing one of the three areas of specialization: Environmental Monitoring & Security Management, Geoinformatics, or Spatial Technology Management. SIM keeps up-to-date with developments in GIScience and relevant fields by, for example, inviting distinguished scholars and young researchers to the “GI Research Colloquium” where talks are given on hot topics ranging from dealing with big data or geovisual analytics to open source software solutions or sensors on drones.
