Free specialisation

Become a high-skilled geospatial professional

Design you very own Free specialization .

Do you have an area of expertise and/or career path in mind that is not quite covered by the specializations as outlined by ITC? Not to worry, as you can also define your very own free specialization by making a personal selection from the courses on offer in the different specializations. An ITC team of mentor and research theme coordinator will be glad to help you compose an alternative integral programme of courses.

At the start of the Master’s programme you will identify and select four courses (7 credits each) to be added to the compulsory common and elective courses for the first year. Final approval of your course selection will be subject to proper motivation, consent to be given by the research theme coordinator, and feasibility in terms of course planning. 

For an overview of the different courses on offer please check the course information provided under the various specializations.
