Scholarship of Cartography MSc

Cartography M.Sc. is a four semester Master of Science Programme of four universities in Munich, Vienna, Dresden and Twente. It focusses on a broad education in cartography and geoinformatics.


The four partner sites represent centers of excellence in the field of cartography, recognized at the European and global levels.

The Chair of Cartography of TUM, the Research Division Cartography of TUW, the Institute of Cartography of TUD and the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation of UT complement each other in an ideal way to provide an exceptional programme with excellent job employment prospects in this interdisciplinary field.

The composition is a complementary approach of the partners’ different research and educational profiles in an area where each partner is a leader in their own country and recognized internationally. With a very high concentration of scientific competence in cartography and cartography-related fields, the programme is outstanding not only in Europe. 

The programme takes place at all four cooperating universities and is completely taught in English. Students stay together as a group during the whole time and have to spend their 1st semester at TUM in Germany. Then they have to study the 2nd semester at TU Vienna in Austria. After that they study their 3rd semester at TU Dresden in Germany. During the first and third semester, online modules from the University of Twente are integrated in the curriculum. In the 4th semester students prepare their Master’s thesis at one of the four participating universities.
