Overview

The Cartography programme of Eötvös Loránd University provides students with a broad scale of knowledge in Cartography and Geoinformatics in combination with geography, other earth sciences, information technology, database management, web-based mapping services, etc. Students acquire the theory as well as the methodologies in the development and implementation of the latest visualization technics.

Strength of program

Cartography has become a modern and practical science again with the development of computerization. However, only few higher education institutions offer this training at master level.

The high standard of the training is guaranteed by the highly qualified academic staff. Several of the teachers are involved in the leadership of national and international professional organizations of the related area and in editorial boards of journals in the field. Teaching is supported by modern infrastructure and well-equipped labs. Upper-year students and PhD students help the first-year students in a mentor system to overcome their first challenges at the university.

Career paths

Government offices, administration in local governments, research institutions, mapping agencies, archives and private firms need a growing number of cartographers who have a solid background of geoinformatics. Business companies which have a strong involvement in various visualization problems (in print or in three-dimensions) are definitely interested in employing our young cartographers. Also decision-makers often need the GIS support for understanding the spatial relationship of features and social or natural phenomena.

Job examples

Cartographer at national mapping agencies, in land registration, at private companies,  publishers, geoinformatical firms.
