The new International Master program (Master of Science, M.Sc.) in CARTOGRAPHY is a cooperation of :
– Technische Universität München (TUM), Department of Cartography
– Technische Universität Wien (TU Wien), Research Group Cartography
– Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden), Institute for Cartography
The primary goal of CARTOGRAPHY Master’s Program is to educate future engineers in Cartography in combination with Geoinformatics and prepare them for a scientific or industrial career in Cartography. Students gain fundamental knowledge in analyzing and visualizing geographic data.
The unique curriculum taught by the three cooperating Universities TUM, TU Vienna and TU Dresden distinguishes CARTOGRAPHY from other master’s programs in related fields.
* studying at three charming European cities
(München, Wien, Dresden)
* gaining from the expertise of three well known
european Technical Universities
* international study environment
* individual supervision in a small courses
With its unique features, it is an innovative approach that provides excellent job opportunities. The cooperation of the different universities intents to give the graduates an access to an international research network and an optimal start to a scientific career.
Job possibilities ensue not only in their home country, but also worldwide. Degree holders in cartography and geoinformatics can work for example at universities or research institutes e.g. DLR (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt – German Aerospace Center), as well as for private cartographic / GIS companies like United Maps, ESRI, Siemens, Intergraph etc. Cartographers as mapmakers work in large government agencies or for well known atlas publishers.
