The total fee for the whole programme varies depending on the chosen mobility (where the student wants to write the Master's thesis) and the country of origin. Please see http://cartographymaster.eu/financial-information/ for more details.
The programme focuses on a comprehensive education in cartography and geoinformatics, in particular on spatial information technologies, mathematic principles of map making, spatial data handling, theories and technologies of visual analytics, geovisualisation and communication of spatial information. The curriculum is structured in compulsory and elective modules. It is based on lectures, exercises, seminars, and project works.
During the first semester at TUM, the foundations in cartography and geovisualisation are taught.
In the second semester at TUW, students gain knowledge in multimedia cartography, especially, in web mapping, mobile internet and location-based services (LBS).
Students specialise in mobile cartography and 3D cartography in the third semester at TUD.
During the first and third semester, students have the possibility to choose online modules from the University of Twente within the elective module catalogue.
