Joint K.N.Toosi-ITC Programme (JKIP) 
The Faculty of Geomatics at K.N.Toosi University of Technology, Iran and the Faculty of Geo-information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) of the University of Twente (UT), The Netherlands are proudly offering a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (Specialization/domain: Geoinformatics).

Geoinformatics is about to develop technologies required for analyzing, distributing and visualizing geo-spatial data.


Geo-spatial data is the major driver of today’s information society. More Big Geo Data than ever is being created by smart phones, satellites, and sensors. This data is used for an increasing number of scientific purposes that aim to benefit the world. It’s a matter of gathering, analyzing, distributing and visualizing the data to make it fit for specific use, e.g. in systems for improving agricultural practice or creating healthy cities. The technologies supporting these processes are at the core of geoinformatics.

Efficiently managing these amounts of data takes more than skills. It also requires keeping pace with ongoing technological developments and understanding how to interpret them. That is why ITC’s specialization in Geoinformatics offers courses that teach the required multi-disciplinary approach. You will learn to design and develop algorithms, models, and tools that can process geo-spatial data into reliable, actionable information. You will also be exploring practical areas of application, such as water scarcity, forest monitoring, and urban infrastructures. For your MSc research, you can join forces with dedicated ITC research groups ACQUAL and STAMP.

The aims of JKIP 
  • To expand a critical understanding of suitable tools.
  • To present the new methods and techniques in the field of Geoinformatics.
  • To achieve the necessary skills in developing tools for the acquisition, processing, transformation, analysis, modeling, recording and display of spatial data.
  • To apply the Geoinformation techniques for identifying the development problems.
  • To develop the research skills for the design and implementation of various research and expansion projects in different fields of Geoinformatics.


Learning outcomes

Upon the completion of the course, the participants are capable of:

  • Obtaining a comprehensive knowledge in different fields of Geoinformatics e.g. GIS and Remote sensing
  • Analysing a given problem in the field of Geoinformatics and providing the appropriate solutions for studying and solving that problem.
  • Developing the proper methods for collecting the spatial data and their processing
  • Applying the programming languages for the implementation of the necessary methods
  • Using geo-information knowledge and earth observation technology in the framework of the generation, integration, analysis and visualization of the spatial data
  • Employing the principles of databases and data models by using the database query languages.
  • Performing and formulating the research in the general field of Geoinformatics, perhaps as in component of a multi-disciplinary research and development project.
