Over deze opleiding

The programme focuses on the theoretical education and concepts of digital geo-information production and the use of tools in for instance the acquisition, an processing of spatial information.

Managing land use and the Earth’s resources become increasingly important due to the rising world population and economic growth. To keep pace with the demand, planners and resource managers now make considerable use of complex and powerful computerized Geographical Information Systems (GIS). GIS users such as land and urban planners, resource managers and application scientists depend on the availability of up-to-date, well-structured data. Digital images from airborne and spaceborne sensors are often used as data sources, along with modern techniques such as laser altimetry and mobile GIS.

The programme focuses on the theoretical education and concepts of digital geo-information production and the use of state-of-the-art tools in the acquisition, processing, storage, visualization and dissemination of spatial information. You acquire both practical skills and in-depth knowledge of the technical processes involved in problem solving issues like food production, health and water management, adapted to the chosen specialization: ‘Remote Sensing and Digital Image Processing’, or ‘GIS and Geo-Visualization’.

The tuition fee includes all expenses necessary to offer our students a comprehensive educational experience from start to end of selected course. These include registration fees, course materials, course excursions and access to research data and equipment. Fieldwork is paid out of general means as well as student personal funds, and varies per course and research theme. The cost of the residence permit is set by the Dutch Government and is subject to periodic increases. ITC applies on the applicants'behalf for the residence permit, therefore the applicant is invoiced for this amount in advance .Dutch Immigration Service (IND) provides an estimate of monthly accommodation and living costs in the Netherlands. IND requires that ITC guarantees on behalf of the applicant that s/he has adequate funding to cover accommodation and living cost. All applicants must therefore provide evidence of funds by covering full payment of accommodation and living costs prior to start of course. The living allowance has to be paid in advance, after which students receive a refund upon arrival. This refund is after deduction of hotel accommodation expenses and can be used for food and out-of-pocket expenses. It is paid out either on a monthly basis or per course module, depending on the type of course you have registered for.All course participants traveling to ITC are required by law to hold full medical insurance. The short stay visa to travel to the Netherlands will not be issued unless insurance cover can be shown to the embassy. ITC arranges a comprehensive insurance cover in advance of arrival at the rates shown above. Applicants who are European Union citizens holding their own medical insurance must be able to provide evidence of comparable insurance. If provided and approved by ITC, these students are exempt from purchasing insurance through ITC.The tuition fee and additional costs are to be fully paid in advance to cover the total duration of the cost. Applicants for the MSc, Master, Postgraduate or Diploma course can pay their tuition expenses in two installment periods. For more information on fees and payment, please check our website
