The University of Twente is starting a new joint Master programme GEM (Geo-information Science and Earth Observation for Environmental Modelling and Management) together with three other universities. First students will start the programme in September 2021.
Geo-Ethics Symposium took place today, the 14th of March 2016, at the University of Twente. Its goal was to point out and discuss ethical issues related to geo-information and mapmaking. 'The entry point of this symposium is that geo-information is malleable. We as scientists have the social responsibility and agency to shape technology,' said Tom Veldkamp, the Dean of ITC, during his opening speech. 'We introduce completely new technologies, by which we shape the environment.'
Het zijn de studenten die hun waardering uitspreken voor de topmasters electrical engineering, applied physics en geo-information science & earth observation. Daarom ontvingen de masters het predicaat ‘topopleiding’ van de Keuzegids 2016. Waarin zit die waardering vooral?
