The Interdisciplinary PostGraduate Programme "GeoInformatics" is offered by NTUA since 1998, with the participation of: (a) School of Rural and Surveying Engineering, (b) School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and (c) School of Mining and Metallurgical Engineering. The general coordination and support of the program as well as the awarding of the degree is undertaken by the School of Rural and Surveying Engineering. The Programme is addressed to NTUA graduates but also to those from other universities, having an interest in geospatial science and technology. It provides specialization in: (a) the collection, georeferencing, description, interpretation, and mapping of geospatial data of the physical, artificial and socio-economic environment, (b) spatial analysis and planning, and (c) the development of various geo-applications employing state-of-the-art methods and cutting-edge geospatial technologies.  The duration of the Programme is three academic semesters. Awarding the Postgraduate Specialization Diploma (MSc) in Geoinformatics requires: (a) successful completion of 8 courses (4 core and 4 specialization courses), and (b) successful completion of a research thesis. The total number of credits (ECTS) corresponding to the acquisition of the Diploma is 90 (30 per semester). The number of annually enrolled students is about 30. The number of applicants varies between 70 and 120.
