Master GIScience - Training activities

For the academic year 2020/2021, the common courses will be delivered for the most part in synchronous videoconference with some face-to-face activities. These aspects will be better defined after the measures for the prevention of contagion from COVID19 will be organized.

The Master is divided into 20 credits of common courses, 18 CFU for each academic path and 22 credits of stage. There are 304 hours of lectures, 646 hours of individual study, and 550 hours of stage for a total of 1,500 hours, corresponding to 60 credits.
Much of the teaching will be carried out in a computer room and / or laptops.
The Master takes the approach of learning in the situation, alternating lectures of teachers with practical examples and immediate experimentation. There will be excursions and survey activities on the field.
