1 GEO-SPATIAL-TECHNOLOGIES", a trans-university new integrative master degree Wolfgang Sulzer Institute for Geography and Regional Science University of Graz, Austria Heinrichstrasse 36 A-8010 Graz, Austria

2 Table of Contents Introduction Team Members Framework conditions Curriculum Conclusion and ongoing tasks

3 Introduction 1 Introduction Present the curriculum of a trans-university master degree in Geo- Spatial-Technologies To boost the discussion of such integrative studies (tension between Geography and Technical University studies) To get known your experiences in such programs GEO-SPATIAL-TECHNOLOGIES

4 Team Members Institute for Geography and Regional Science Institute for Geoinformatics Institute for Navigation and Satellite Geodesy Institute for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Institute for Digital Image Processing (Joanneum Research) Team Members

5 Framework Conditions: 2 Universities (TUG KFUG) with similar studies (Remote Sensing GIS and Cartography) and research Long lasting cooperation in research and studies Existing student exchange within the two universities Joint research programs (TUG, JR, KFUG) Experiences within MSc Program (post graduated): Space Sciences Experiences in joint Summer Schools Framework Conditions Changing legal conditions for universities in Austria (UG 02)

6 Focus existing expertise in research and teaching and to offer a joint master program Cope an international and attractive Master Program React on new trends in research and to bring into a study program Combine existing lessons into something new Get ahead of colleges Goal: Benefits from existing teaching resources Framework Conditions Target group: students with geodetic and geographical background and geo-spatial focus

7 Co-operation instead of competition Framework Conditions NAWI Graz stands for joint teaching, research and doctorate programmes in the field of the natural sciences at the scientific location of Styria. Karl-Franzens-University and TU Graz created a milestone in their own histories by the showcase project which is one of its kind in Austria: For the first time, two Austrian universities established a comprehensive strategic co-operation in research and teaching.

8 Challenge 1 Framework Conditions Complementary goals and expertises of involved institutions offer optimal prerequisites for join research activities Synergies, which results from this cooperation can be used for joint integrative teaching purposes. KFU Graz goals / tasks: Applications in Remote Sensing and GIS with geographical topics (Climate, regional sciences and planning, high mountain research, geomorphology, ecology, anthropogenic processes and structures, human and environmental spatial analyses) TU Graz goals / tasks: Development of algorithm and software for digital processing of remote sensing, photogrammetric data, for analyses modules of geoinformatics and for optimizing of measurements (close up photogrammetry and laserscanning)

9 Challenge 2 Framework Conditions KFU Graz advantages Interdisciplinary approach, Understanding of data content of geoinformation, Application of Geo-Technologies and technology transfer disadvantages: Specific technical background in the fields of photogrammetry, geoinformatics, metrology and navigation as well as Skills in algorithm and software engineering TU Graz advantages : Mathematics and geodetic background for the above mentioned goals / tasks as well as Technical understanding for metrological techniques disadvantages : Going to application of design techniques, Acquire geographical relationships

10 Challenge 3 Framework Conditions Joining two different Bachelor studies into 1 Master Program KFU: Bachelor in Geography and Regional Sciences TU Graz: Bachelor in Geomatics Engineering How to make both alumni fit for the Master program which requires both geography and geodesy basics?

11 Realisation 1 Allocation to Geography (branch of study; TUG: DI, KFUG: MSC) 50% teaching on TUG and 50% teaching on KFUG Framework Conditions Integrate existing lessons of involved institutes ( no additional costs!) Compensation of different (Bachelor-) skills with defined additional lessons

12 October an idea was born GEO-SPATIAL-TECHNOLOGIES Realisation 2 Framework Conditions March 2006: agreement about the content and curriculum within the team members (what should be the content) April 2006 June 2007: Finding legal agreement within different laws and to go through all official channels of the two universities! June 2007: <curriculum passes both senates Start: October 2007

13 Realisation 3 Harmonization of Master Level courses Framework Conditions Harmonisation of Bachelor Level courses in Cartography, Geoinformatics and Remote Sensing (with defined subject demands) Adaptation of existing studying branches (Bc, MSc) New integrative lessons

14 Curriculum 4 Semester: Curriculum Obligatory subjects ECTS 1. Acquisition and Management Analyses Presentation and Visualisation Practical Course 8 5. (Selected) Subjects and Free Electives Master Thesis 30 Sum: 120

15 Acquisition and Management (15 ECTS) : Curriculum Data Acquisition and Integration GPS Basics Location Based Services (LBS) GPS based data acquisition Metadata Interoperability

16 Analyses (29 ECTS): Curriculum Applied analysing techniques (GIS and RS); Network Analyses, object based classification, software engineering, laser scanning,... Applications of Remote Sensing (environ. Monitoring, urban planning, climatology, forestry,...)

17 GIS and Internet Kartographic Information Systems 3-D Visualisation GEO-SPATIAL-TECHNOLOGIES Presentation and Visualisation (11 ECTS): Curriculum

18 Practical Course (8 ECTS): Curriculum Integrative Practical Course Workflow of an applied project (topics definition, data acquisition, integration, analyses, presentation, interpretation,...)

19 (Selected) Subjects (15 ECTS) and Free Electives (12 ECTS) For Geographers (Bachelor): For Geodesy (Bachelor): Satellite Positioning Projection Systems Data Base Management Photogrammetry Geo- Mathematics Cartography Physical Geography Human Geography Curriculum

20 (Selected) Subjects (15 ECTS) Curriculum Digital Cartography Regional Planning Satellite Geodesy/Navigation Software Engineering High Mountain and Climate Geography Sustainable Urban and Regional Development Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Geophysics To select 2-3 subjects (min. 4 ECTS)!

21 Master Thesis (30 ECTS): Applied topics offer integrative master theses linkage to Joanneum Research (DIP) and other research institutions integration into international projects

22 Conclusion - Ongoing Processes more adaptation and harmonization of curriculum contents design of new integrative lessons creation of a Virtual Lab to run a data and software server build up an e-learning platform minimize the spatial distance of the two Universities build up a centre for Geo-Spatial-Technologies offer integrative master thesis set up a joint doctor degree school integrate international aspects of education (english, EU frameworks, etc.) More information:
