UNIGIS accredited by AQ Austria

Through systematic evaluation, feedback and international cooperation, UNIGIS Salzburg has always strived for top national and international quality standards in terms of content, structure and organisation of the two distance learning study programmes UNIGIS professional and UNIGIS MSc. National regulations in Austria, however, do not provide a legal framework for external evaluation of study programmes at federal universities by the official national accreditation agency AQ Austria.

Distances shrink, networks matter: UNIGIS MSc 2013

“I need to know more about GIS.” This was the common objective of 28 students meeting in Salzburg for the UNIGIS MSc starter workshop. However, GIS was not the central topic of the workshop. Prof. Strobl challenged such expectations right away in his welcoming talk: “we do not expect you to leave Salzburg knowing much more about GIS, we want you to get to know each other”. On the way towards a community of practice of GIS students, coffee breaks during the workshop and delicious Austrian “Ripperl” with “Keller-Bier” facilitated this aim. Supervised by the UNIGIS_2013 mascot GISmo, the basis …
