What's the Master's Geo-information Science and Earth Observation about?

The SAB is the representative body for all students at ITC. Our mission is to provide an on-going connection between the student body and ITC management while developing positive goodwill and support to the Institute for Geo-information Science and Earth Observation. We also aim to make the postgraduate experience at ITC as enjoyable and rewarding as possible.

In this regard, we run several academic, social and sports activities in collaboration with ITC student affairs:

  • We issue newsletters that bring in the latest academic articles and other activities for the welfare of the students. 
  • We organize the annual Teacher of the year event that aims at recognizing the hard work and talent of our dedicated teachers. 
  • We ensure the students’ representation in the Programme Committee. 
  • We maintain regular contact with the educational manager about general education-related issues.
  • We arrange workshops like stargazing and open days.
  • We organize and support the students to participate in the International Sports Day and in the Batavierenrace.
  • In addition, we also plan and arrange the International Food Festival, parties, movie nights, and excursions to places like Amsterdam, Keukenhof gardens, creating a conducive environment for the students at ITC.

We will keep updating you on upcoming activities.
