"Geography is the subject which holds
the key to our future"
— Michael Palin

EDUCATION

Become a geographer, geomatic, surveyor or hydrographer

Bachelor of Science in Geography and Geomatics and the additional Master of Science in Geomatics and Land Surveying are broad and multidisciplinary courses that submerge you in several geo-domains, in combination with nature and social sciences.

The social and natural processes that occur in space, in the past and in the present, and the mutual spatial relations are always at the centerpoint.
