A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.
Students of the MSc in Geospatial Technologies degree will be able to develop applications of Geoinformation systems (GIS), use GIS tools for analysis of spatial relations or manage natural and human resources strategically. The degree teaches several subjects that range from physical geography to navigation systems.
Masters Program in Geospatial Technologies
The Masters of Technology in Geomatics is a field with ancient roots, modern relevance, and an eye to the future. [+]
The degree program is structured with a first year in which they are addressed teachings characterize the main scientific areas (SSD) of Geology, by GEO / GEO 01/08.

Geomatics involve the acquisition, management and analysis of phenomena with a spatial reference. Spatial analysis finds applications in many areas, such as health, the environment, urban planning, geology, archaeology and agronomy. This programme aims to provide knowledge in spatial analysis for environmental applications. It includes studies in geographical information systems (GIS), remote sensing and physical geography. Models and theories for understanding the Earth´s climate and ecosystems are integrated with knowledge for collecting environmental information using remote sensing, storing the information in databases and theories behind GIS.

Master in Hydrogeology and Environmental Geoscience (M.Sc.)
International Master programme held in English: The course aim is to prepare its participants for professional work as hydrogeologists, water resources or environmental experts, in research, consulting or administration in the public or private sector. It qualifies professionals for the groundwater resources and environmental technology sector.The international Master Programme “Hydrogeology and Environmental Geoscience (HEG)“ at the University of Göttingen conveys modern know-how in the fields of integrated water resources management, contaminant transport in the subsurface and groundwater in fractured systems. Special attention is given to practical and quantitative approaches: e.g. saltwater intrusion; usage of alternative water resources (artificial recharge); environmental monitoring and remediation; water pollution control; contaminant treatment technologies; systems, surface and groundwater modelling. Emphasis is placed on water scarcity problems in semi-arid regions and developing countries.The tuition programme is presented by an international experienced and interdisciplinary team of lecturers from universities, private companies, research institutes and governmental institutions. Tuition includes lectures, field/laboratory work and case studies.... [-]
