Geoinformatics PhD programme

The Geoinformatics PhD programme is a highly sought-after framework for top academic credentials. Doctoral research is an integral part of Z_GIS’ overall structure, linking advanced education with cutting-edge research. Doctoral students at Z_GIS equally emphasize the importance of excellent research as well as outstanding academic qualifications.

A PhD can be pursued either based on a professional or self-funded (scholarship) background (PhD in Applied Geoinformatics), or within the framework of the Doctoral College GIScience.

A thematically focused group within the entire PhD programme “Applied Geoinformatics”, the competitively selected candidates of the Doctoral College “GIScience”, are pursuing their degrees in a structured, collaborative environment. Experience abroad and daily interaction across a diverse range of topics lead to fresh insights and outstanding academic results.
