Distant but always connected
UNIGIS students can take advantage from a strong global network that is dedicated to deliver online programs in Geoinformatics to working professionals since three decades. Eight partner universities in Europe, the United States and Latin America collaborate as the UNIGIS International Association. The association partners with the GI-industry and other institutions, for example ESRI, Oracle or the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). These cooperations allow UNIGIS to offer free educational licences for all major GIS software packages.
The University of Salzburg is one of the founding members of the UNIGIS International Association in 1990 and it has offered online GIS programs since then. Today, UNIGIS Salzburg delivers its programs in three languages, German, English and Spanish. The English-language programs are offered directly by the University of Salzburg, as well as in cooperation with study centres in Europe, India, Nepal and Central Asia.
Students and alumni stay connected via the ClubUNIGIS. Once enrolled to the program, students can benefit from this growing network of GI-professionals right away. Apart from a number of educational offers, discounts and services, the true added value of a ClubUNIGIS membership lies in the network itself. More than 3000 GI-professionals around the globe are part of the UNIGIS Salzburg community.
