The focus is on the processing, analysis and communication of spatial data with Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
Target group and outcome
The GIS Minor is aimed at students from disciplines in which the analysis of spatial data is useful. These subjects include ecology, environmental sciences, and social and economic sciences. Additionally, students of technical subjects such as computer science are targeted to combine technical knowledge with domain knowledge. Depending on the course combination, certificates can be earned for the basic module, for the supplementary study module, or for geoinformatics as a major.
