Über das Studium:

The study programme is scientifically based, provides a broad range of academic analysis and research methods, and prepares students for a doctoral degree programme. It provides application-oriented knowledge based on relevant theories and methods. Discipline-specific ways of thinking, analytical skills and techniques as well as problem-solving competences are developed in core areas of Copernicus and Digital Earth, especially in:

  • Geospatial data acquisition and visual / cartographic communication;
  • Data modelling and spatial data management;
  • Data analytics across the spectrum of Geoinformatics: georeferenced data and data streams; in-situ, remote and mobile sensing; statistics;
  • Spatial analysis, as well as dynamic system simulation;
  • Standards for architectures of open and distributed systems and spatial data infrastructures;
  • Development of geospatial applications.


The MSc CDE programme comprises 7 modules with a total number of 72 ECTS points. 12 ECTS points assigned each for elective subjects (ES) and an obligatory internship. The master’s thesis incl. a research methods and academic writing module, an ePortfolio and the Master’s exam is rated 24 ECTS points.

Berufsaussichten / Jobs:

Graduates of the MSc CDE programme will be able to independently plan and manage complex projects and applications in Geoinformatics as well as to cooperate on projects in spatial data infrastructures. The aim is to support and enhance decision-making in all application domains of Copernicus. Graduates of the MSc CDE programme develop a focus on methodological and technical areas of expertise, thus emphasizing career perspectives in public administration (e.g. spatial data infrastructures and geoinformatics services and application development, as well as in application domains such as in spatial planning, regional management, mobility, environment and nature conservation) and in business across a broad spectrum of industries. The study programme covers all areas of geospatial data collection and data management, spatial analytics, communication of results and decision support, interaction with of spatial information, as well as aspects of general management.


As Erasmus+ EMJMD programme there is a qualification based selection process. In order to be admitted to this master’s programme, students must hold a bachelor’s degree in a geospatial discipline or from an equivalent programme at an internationally recognised tertiary educational institution, and the admission by the Consortium of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme.
