In an evaluation procedure, up to 32 students will be admitted each year (fall/winter semester), half of them starting at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa and half at the Universitat Jaume I, Castellón. The overall entry requirements are defined by the respective national laws for Higher Education in Spain and Portugal. 2. A requirement for admission is to have completed at the time of application an adequate Bachelor degree of six semesters full time (= 180 ECTS credit points) or more, as recognized by the partner universities in Germany, Portugal, or Spain, for admission to graduate studies. The Masters Program in Geospatial Technologies is recommended to students with relevant degrees in application areas of geographic information, e.g., geography, ecology, urban, regional and environmental planning, logistics/transportation, energy provision, surveying, agriculture, forestry, and related. We also particularly welcome students with a degree in computer science. Within previous studies or professional experience, we expect applicants having acquired basic IT/GI skills already. In case of uncertainty, the Examination board or Masters Program coordinator decide about relevance of the previous degree.
