New MSc Students at Salzburg University

The 2008 intake for the German language UNIGIS MSc programme at Salzburg University started with a group of 57 new students. With very diverse academic and professional backgrounds, all share the common goal of achieving an advanced qualification in Geographic Information Science & Systems in order to stimulate their careers and to enhance their professional outlook.
Over an intense three day workshop from Jan 3-5, everybody got together to establish a solid foundation for communication throughout the two year distance learning course. Salzburg University is very proud to welcome such an ambitious class: "We are looking forward to supporting emerging future leaders and creative minds for the GIS industry!" said Michael Fally, UNIGIS MSc director of studies.
The Salzburg University UNIGIS distance learning programmes are offered internationally in German and English languages, with more than 1000 graduates it has evolved into an important foundation for building spatial information infrastructures in academia and across all application domains.
