Geographic Information Systems Engineering (180 ECTS credits)
Geographical information of earth is stored in innumerable databases and directories all over the world. Much of the information is collected from satellites circling the globe. In order to work effectively with this information Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are used.
As a GIS engineer you will contribute to the development of the new digital society where Geographic Information (GI) is extensively used. Digital GI is employed in many different areas from position-based systems for mobile Internet services to the monitoring of ambulance transports via GPS. Almost all Swedish municipalities and government agencies use GIS in their daily work, for instance in environmental monitoring and physical planning.
