Geographical Information Management and Applications, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months


Geographical information is becoming more and more important in the World’s societies. Think of physical planning, risk management, navigation systems, location based services, movement analysis, augmented reality, increasing use of maps and volunteered geographical information. GIMA is a very complete Master of Science programme, which focuses on the management and application of geographical information from a scientific perspective. In addition to this specific focus, there are two more aspects which make GIMA a unique Master of Science program: the blended learning concept and the co-operation between four renowned Dutch universities.

You will get the best from geo-information Nederland GISexperts from four universities in the Netherlands: University of Twente/ITC Enschede, TU Delft, Utrecht University and Wageningen University. These universities have joined forces to offer GIMA, each with their own specializations related to geo-information technology, management and applications.
