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.
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.
The internship is one of the reflections of GIMA’s links to professional geo-information organizations (governments, companies, institutes). The possibility of doing GIMA part-time (whilst working in such an organization) is another reflection. Part-time GIMA studies last 4 years and full-time studies 2 years.
The English language Geographical Information Management and Applications from Wageningen University and Research is also an international programme. It does not only target Dutch bachelors, but surely also foreign bachelors and professionals with equivalent pre-education.
