Profile of the Branch
The aim is to prepare graduates who master geoinformatics and geoinformation technologies at the application level and will be able to actively work with existing applications of geoinformation technologies, from data gathering across the spatial analysis up to the presentation of the outputs of the analyses. They will be exercisable in both the state and local governments as well as in the private sector (managers of the utilities, transport undertakings, companies involved in the collection and distribution of data, etc.).
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
Graduates are equipped with knowledge of the basics of programming, geoweb technology, geographic information systems, satellite navigation and positioning systems, remote sensing, digital terrain models, gathering, storage, analysing, and publishing of geodata, and from the area of project management.
The graduate can acquire geodata in the field, or, where appropriate, from existing resources, he can update them, insert them into the database, perform simple or standard analysis and visualization of geodata, and manage existing applications geoinformation technology.
General competencies:
The graduate can act in the role of collector of geodata, administrator of the databases of geodata, data analyst, manager of geoinformation technologies applications.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
The aim of the course is both theoretical and practical mastering of basics of geoinformation technologies and their application in practice. After the basic theoretical subjects, which develop mathematical, physical and informatics basis for the study at the study branch, students obtain knowledge of geoinformation technologies in specialized subjects. The study is accompanied by the subjects from the fields of social sciences. Study is designed to provide students the possibility of the application in the field of companies and public institutions, utilising a wide range of geoinformation technology to support their business activities.
