Language of Instruction English
Admission Requirements Bachelor level graduates from ‘spatially oriented disciplines’
like Geography, Surveying / Geomatics, Geoinformatics or
Cartography can be admitted without additional coursework.
Candidates with a bachelor level or higher qualification in
other relevant fields like computer science, ecology,
geosciences, environmental sciences, social sciences of
economics can be ‘conditionally’ admitted with additional
credit requirements of up to 45 ECTS.

What will I learn?

The knowledge and skills developed in this programme are based on the common grounding of spatial sciences and a ‘Digital Earth’ perspective, based on concepts typically acquired during undergraduate Geography, Surveying, Environmental Studies, Cartography or Planning programmes. The MSc aims at building of advanced competences in geospatial data acquisition and data management, data analytics and simulation as well as interactive communication. Graduates are expected to interface with different spatially oriented application domains, contribute to solving problems across societies, economies and environments as well as leading teams assigned pertinent tasks.

Which career opportunities do I have?

Graduates of the Master's programme in "Applied Geoinformatics" develop a focus on methodological and technical areas of expertise, thus emphasizing career perspectives in public administration (e.g. spatial data infrastructures and Geoinformatics services and application development, as well as in application domains such as in spatial planning, regional management, mobility, environment and nature conservation) and in business across a broad spectrumof industries. The study programme covers all areas of geospatial data collection and data management, spatial analytics, communication of results and decision support, interaction with of spatial information, as well as aspects of general management.

    During games when there are no fans in local football stadiums, deep acoustic insights into the inner workings of coaches can clearly be heard in TV broadcasts, due to the lack of background noise.Nevertheless, emotional outbursts and arguments among players and coaches have decreased considerably overall, in corona-related “behind closed door matches". Salzburg researchers calculated this using the example of games at FC Red Bull Salzburg. In contrast, more goals were scored across Austria.

    The new edition of the journal for practical philosophy is now online, with its finger on the pulse is also takes into account one topic that is shaping us like no other:the Corona pandemic. It is one of the two main focuses of the issue and its considerable scope not only reflects the importance of this topic, but also the real need to reflect philosophically and ethically on the diverse consequences of this pandemic.
    With the PLUS Talk, a new form of communication was introduced to the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg in 2020. Within the framework of this format members of the rectorate discuss certain key issues with employees of the PLUS, students and public representatives. The discussions take place LIVE and offer participants the opportunity to ask questions on current topics.
    After talks with the ministry and intensive consultation with the deans, the rectorate of the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg has decided that exams should generally only be conducted online at the moment. The following points apply here:
    INTERDISCIPLINARY CONGRESS under the leadership of Reinhard Heinisch, Reinhard Klaushofer, Christoph Kühberger and Margit Reiter
    10 am /Online-Matinee with lecture and discussion „Artes“ series with Robert Brennan and Wolf-Dietrich Löhr.
    As part of the series „MUSIC & MEDICINE“ the cooperation focus group science and culture is organising another online lecture on the 3rd February 2021.
    The Law Academy at the University of Salzburg is offering three online seminars in January 2021 on the topics of an update to competition law (antitrust law and UWG) on Friday, 15 January 2021, an update to company law on Friday, 22 January 2021 and an update to warranty law on Friday, 29th January 2021.
