Qualification Requirements and Regulations
Qualification Requirements:
Finished secondary education with secondary school-leaving exam.
Regulations:
The Czech educational system is regulated by the Higher Education Act (Act 111/1998). Studies at VŠB-TUO are regulated by the Statute of VŠB – Technical University of Ostrava.
Profile of the Branch
The course is designed primarily for students who are interested in geography and information technology. Students will learn in detail how to acquire so-called spatial (geographical) data (using global navigation satellite systems, satellites or drones), store (using database systems), process, analyze, visualize and publish, whether in the form of standard maps or services on the Internet. Students acquire comprehensive knowledge of geographic information systems and geoinformation technologies and knowledge needed to develop their own applications. Several subjects are taught in English. The program provides graduates with the opportunity to continue their studies or find employment in a number of public institutions and private companies using spatial data.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
Knowledge:
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.
Skills:
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 may act as a geodata collector, geodat database manager, geodat analyst, application manager for geoinformation technologies, and may continue to follow-up study.
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. The study branch is designed to provide students with the opportunity to continue to study in a follow-up study program or to get job in the field of companies and public institutions that use relevant practices and technologies to support their work activities.
