Last weekend was a perfect start. A start not just into a year of demanding coursework, but also a start to advance careers by acquiring a comprehensive set of skills and competences in applied Geoinformatics. After finishing their UNIGIS professional studies, our new group of 8 committed people with backgrounds in Archeology, Biology, Geology, Ecology, Forestry, Informatics, and Surveying will be able to make out more of their spatial data.
They all will know how to use of GIS and related technologies to acquire, model, distribute and analyze geolocated data, how to derive meaningful information from it and how to communicate this information to others by means of clear and easy to understand maps and visualizations. Since spatial is special, having competence in “spatial” is special in the job market as well. We from the UNIGIS Salzburg team will try our best to support our new students along their individual learning paths and wish a successful year of study!
