Overview

The four semester Master programme starts every year in winter semester (October) and will enroll up to 25 students from all over the world. The qualification finally awarded to the students is the joint degree “Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Cartography” issued by TUM, TUW, TUD and UT together.

Details

The programme focuses on a comprehensive education in cartography and geoinformatics, in particular on spatial information technologies, mathematic principles of map making, spatial data handling, theories and technologies of visual analytics, geovisualization and communication of spatial information.

  • During the 1st semester at TUM, the foundations in cartography and geovisualization are taught.
  • In the 2nd semester at TUW students gain knowledge in multimedia cartography, especially in web mapping, mobile internet and location-based services (LBS).
  • Students specialize in mobile cartography and 3D cartography in the 3rd semester at TUD.
  • During the first and third semester, online modules from the University of Twente are integrated in the curriculum.

The composition is a complementary approach of the partners’ different research and educational profiles in an area where each partner is a leader in their own country and recognized internationally. With a very high concentration of scientific competence in cartography and cartography-related fields, the programme is outstanding not only in Europe. 

The programme takes place at all four cooperating universities and is completely taught in English. Students stay together as a group during the whole time and have to spend their 1st semester at TUM in Germany. Then they have to study the 2nd semester at TU Vienna in Austria. After that they study their 3rd semester at TU Dresden in Germany. During the first and third semester, online modules from the University of Twente are integrated in the curriculum. In the 4th semester students prepare their Master’s thesis at one of the four participating universities.
