As a Master’s student of Geo-information Science and Earth Observation at ITC you will focus on a specific field of interest, with multiple specializations to choose from, including a tailor-made specialization.
Imagine deploying drones to assess disaster damage and gather data that can be instantly used to take action. Helping self-driving cars go where they’re supposed to go. Or taking augmented reality to a level where it could actually help solve problems in the real world. These are just a few of many applications made possible by geo-information science and earth observation (GEO).
From traditional map-making to creating modern data-driven solutions to real-world problems, this field offers an incredible variety of possible applications. That certainly helps to explain why a US Department of Labor report identified this industry as one of the three fastest growing of the 21st century. Research institute Markets and Markets predicts it will grow from $ 31 Billion in 2016 to $ 74 Billion by 2021. Logically the job market, in the private and (semi-)public sector as well as academia, is expected to grow accordingly.
Would you like to be at the forefront of this rapidly growing industry? Are you looking for a first-rate Master’s programme that will unlock your future in more ways than one? Does the prospect of living and studying abroad in a decidedly international environment appeal to you? Then ITC at the University of Twente (The Netherlands) could be the ticket. An internationally acclaimed faculty, ITC features 70 years’ worth of experience and a network of over 20,000 alumni for you to benefit from. Our Master’s programme in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation (M-GEO) will first provide a broad overview of the most relevant topics in the field and then offer plenty of room for specialization. In the end you can almost literally be what you want to be.
