Background and Objective

The international Master of Science in Cartography was established in 2011 and is a joint programme of:

  • Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany - Chair of Cartography
  • Vienna University of Technology (TUW), Austria - Research Group Cartography
  • Technische Universität Dresden (TUD), Germany - Institute for Cartography
  • University of Twente (UT), The Netherlands - Department of Geo-Information Processing

Through the cooperation of four leading universities in the field of cartography the combined comprehensive expertise enables a unique curriculum and provides an exceptional programme with excellent job employment prospects. The programme focuses on a broad education in cartography and geoinformatics, e.g., on spatial information technologies, mathematic principles of map making, spatial data handling, theories and technologies of geovisualization, visual analytics and communication of spatial information.
After four successful years, the Cartography M.Sc. has been selected for Erasmus+ by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the European Union. One section of the Erasmus+ programme is the “Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree”, which supports excellent international Master courses in Europe. The “Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree” aims to foster quality enhancements, innovation, excellence and internationalization in higher education institutions.

Programme Structure

The programme takes place at all four cooperating universities and is completely taught in English. Students stay together as a group during the whole time and have to spend their 1st semester at TUM in Germany. Then they have to study the 2nd semester at TUW in Austria. After that they study their 3rd semester at TUD in Germany. During the first and third semester, online modules from the University of Twente are integrated in the curriculum. In the 4th semester students prepare their Master’s thesis at one of the four participating universities.

The full-time Master programme awards a total of 120 ECTS and is to be completed in two years. Students obtain 30 ECTS in each semester/at each university, respectively 30 ECTS for their Master’s thesis.
The qualification finally awarded to the students is the joint degree “Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Cartography”.

Computational Science and Engineering
The understanding of phenomena and processes from science and engineering is, today, no longer merely based on theory and experiment, but more and more on computations, as well. Computer simulations supplement experiments, and sometimes even allow the study of technical systems and natural phenomena that would be too time-consuming, expensive, or dangerous (if possible at all) to study by experiment alone.

Data Engineering and Analytics
Die Verarbeitung und Auswertung von extrem großen Datenmengen ist ein drängendes Problem in vielen Bereichen und erfordert ganz neue Techniken und Verfahren. Dieser Trend zu "Big Data" wird durch eine Reihe von Entwicklungen vorangetrieben: Erstens wird es immer einfacher, große Mengen von Daten zu erzeugen und zu speichern, z.B. wegen günstigem Speicherplatz, Sensoren, smart devices, Sozialen Netzwerken, usw. Zweitens, können diese großen Datenmengen durch technische Fortschritte wie z.B. schnelle multi-core Systeme und Cloud Computing auch in großem Stil verarbeitet werden.
