Study


We have accredited teaching of Geoinformatics in a full-time and a combined mode for the Bachelor’s (Bc.), Fellow-Up Master’s (Ing.) and Doctoral (Ph.D.) study programmes. For more information please see below or click here.

Branch Profile

The real world has changed to digital world described by spatial data. This continual stream of spatial data is now changing into a flood of Big Spatial Data. We offer to teach you how to swim.

The potential and prosperity of geoinformatics have been tremendous. We are leading institution in this field in the Central Europe with long time expertise in GeoScience and annually organizing the famous symposium GIS Ostrava.

This programme will equip you with the advanced knowledge and professional skills to succeed in the challenging, dynamic and highly in-demand world of IT. As being a part of technical university, we profit from rich cooperation with industry as well as public bodies. This allows you to become a part of  research teams and further enlarge your expertise.

We focus mainly on solving technical and analytical problems using the latest commercial software (i.e. ArcGIS, IBM SPSS, Oracle) as well as free software (i.e. QGIS, R, PostGIS) and high-end technical equipment (over 50 computers, some with 3D graphic cards, UAVs, Topcon and Trimble GPS receivers).

Institute of Geoinformatics emphasises on stimulating students to apply their gained knowledge to real-world problems. Thus, more than 50% of time of lessons is spent in computers labs dealing with real-life and current problems or by field works utilising UAVs or GPS receivers.

Key Learning Outcomes

Students of Geoinformatics will develop and expand their knowledge and understanding of many aspects of geoinformation technologies; especially in the field of remote sensing, spatial databases, data analyses, geovisualisation, programming of GI applications, global navigation satellite systems, mobile GIT or modelling and simulations.

Students work on the thesis project that is often solving practical problems for industry or public bodies.

Your gained skills enable you to plan and manage the application of GIT and large databases of geodata, create algorithms to solve spatial problems, apply advanced statistical methods, visualize spatial data using modern tech including virtual and augmented reality, model and simulate spatial processes and use of geoweb technology.

Occupational Profile

GIS graduates enter a range of diverse and fast-changing careers from managers, coordinators and specialists to programmers, analysts and technicians – all realizing the potential of geoinformatics to meet the needs of their chosen career.

Our graduated students can easily find a challenging and well-paid job in private, public as well as university sectors. They often find their new employer even during studies as a side effect of many professional practices.

Student Activities (more or less formal)

In the Institute of Geoinformatics, we take pride in establishing a close relationship between teachers and students, which exists not only on the University campus, but also in various out-of-school activities and events.

Approximately once a month there is a regular meeting called GeoScuk, both students and teachers, in an informal and friendly environment of a restaurant consisting of the presentation of one of the representatives of the Institute or an invited guest speaker, and subsequent non-structured get-together open to discussions over drinks.

Students also organize their own events, where they sometimes invite their teachers. Most often, it is a BBQ in Sherwood (forest park behind the student dormitories).

The team is also kept together and supported by a large number of events, such as summer schools, training camps, GIS excursions, field trips, etc. When implementing these activities we always make sure that there is enough room for a very popular word today “networking.”

These words are well illustrated by the photographs of the various above-mentioned events.
