2. General presentation of the study programme

The vision of Digital Earth was proposed by Al Gore in 1998 as a multi-dimensional  and multi-resolution  model of the planet to  contextualize the huge amount of spatial information relating to the physical and socio-economic  environment.  Every day humans generate 2.5 trillion (1018) bytes of data: 80% of them are spatial data acquired from fixed and mobile in-situ sensors, on satellites, aircrafts, UAVs  or land vehicles, digital documents and social media. Such a massive flow generates new challenges since stored data have to be analyzed and processed, both in real-time and off-line, to extract information. Therefore a new scientific and technical figure who combines expertizes of Computer Science, Environmental Engineering and Geomatics is needed.


The Master of Science in Geoinformatics Engineering is a two years international master course taught in English for Italian and foreign students. The Master of Science in Geoinformatics Engineering is the first in Italy and exploits the long lasting experience of Politecnico di Milano in both Environmental, Geomatics and Computer Science to form new and multidisciplinary experts highly requested by both private and public sectors. 


Geoinformatics Engineers are high level experts in technologies for measuring, georeferencing, managing, analyzing, visualizing and publishing spatial and time varying information, with a particular concern to environmental data. Geoinformatics Engineers will thus be involved in the design, implementation and operation of geodata projects to support the new paradigms of Participative Digital Earth, Smart City and Smart Society as well as a variety of decisions at regional, country and global level.  Urban and agricultural land planning, monitoring and management, infrastructure design, transport and traffic monitoring and management, environmental modeling, geography, Earth sciences are the main application fields of Geoinformatics Engineering. All those fields attain to the general context of sustainable management of environment and land.


Study organisation


The study program satisfy both the Italian Ministerial classes LM-32 (Computer Science Engineering) and LM 35  (Environmental and Land management Engineering). At the enrollment the student must choose his Master class: the choice can be modified during the first year of study.


Students having mainly a background in Environmental science will find an introductory course in Computer Science, while those with a computer oriented first level degree will follow a basic course on Geomatics and Environmental issues.


In the environmental field, the mandatory courses cover topics such as Geospatial data analysis, Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Positioning and Location Based Services, Pollution measurement and management; in the Computer Science field, mandatory courses cover topics like Databases, Software engineering, Computer Infrastructures, Formal languages in the Computer Science area. 


In the first year, the plan of mandatory courses allow the students to modify the choice of the Ministerial class. In the second year, mandatory courses alternate with elective courses, that allow students to deepen their expertise.


A research on an original scientific topic closes the path of the student and constitutes his MSc thesis: at the end the thesis is presented and discussed in a public dissertation.


Elective courses available for the students


Elective courses are specifically proposed for Geoinformatics Engineering students. They are either in computer programming and computer systems design, dealing for instance with multidimensional and mobile applications; or in environmental management and sustainability issues dealing for instance with geophysical data processing,  hydrogeological risk or Earth Observation techniques.


Besides Geoinformatics elective courses, the students can select other courses within the whole didactic offer of the Schools of Engineering of Politecnico di Milano. Subject to the approval of the Study Commission, students can also select courses from other Italian or European Universities.  


To meet their academic requirements, students may also select courses with a different number of credits with respect to the indications included within the Recommended Study Plan Tables, provided that the total number of credits for each course year amounts to 60. In order to support student’s selection, tables have been prepared with courses recommended for the completion of their credits.


3. Learning objectives

Mission and goals


The Geoinformatics engineering Master aims at preparing technicians who possess  deep preparation and strong attitude to solve problems relevant to spatial information, with a special concern on geo-referenced environmental data. Therefore, their competences are interdisciplinary and range from Environmental to Computer Science Engineering. More precisely, they will acquire the following skills, both on the methodological and practical point of views.


       
  • Spatial information managing:
    • acquisition and georeferencing, 
    • analysis, classification and processing, 
    • archiving, representation, publication and distribution.
  • Computer infrastructures, needed to manage these data in the framework of the digitalization and automation of public and private sectors, even by Internet and Web technologies.
  • Methodologies and instruments to model and analyze environmental phenomena.
  • Advanced technologies for Big Geodata and internet of Places.

Geoinformatics engineers are able to propose original solutions to manage and process spatial information and proficiently interact with multidisciplinary groups of experts in Environmental and Computer Science fields. The study program is fully offered in English, accordingly to internationalization process of Politecnico di Milano.


Knowledge and comprehension


The Geoinformatics Engineering Master poses the basis on the fundamental knowledge, both in Environmental and Computer Science, that have been acquired at the Bachelor level and proposes new highly specialized topics relevant to Geoinformatics.

The Geoinformatics Engineer’s knowledge spans the general management of spatial information, with a particular attention to geo-referred environmental data; from a Computer Science side, he is able to analyze, design and implement solutions to complex geospatial problems. 


The acquisition of these capabilities requires the knowledge of all the methodological and practical topics that allow to identify, model, and solve the typical Geoinformatics problems. The evaluation of the knowledge is a continuous process during each one course, that starts during classwork and laboratories and ends with the final exam.


Capability to apply knowledge and comprehension


At the end of their Master’s degree, students will have a wide knowledge of methods representing the state of the art of Geoinformatics disciplines. Moreover, they will not only gain the knowledge but also the habit to autonomously and creatively face and solve Geoinformatics problems, which are often unusual and new. Indeed, a main aim of the Master is to make students able to autonomously face cutting edge and original subjects, with a pro-active attitude to problem solution.


The Geoinformatics Engineer solves, at a level that is both methodological and practical, problems related to acquisition, georeferencing, analysis, classification, processing, archiving, representation, publication and distribution of spatial information. This ability continuously requires the application of the knowledge and is achieved through laboratories and projects that are proposed to the students together with traditional courses lectures. The acquired capabilities are verified through the discussion of individual reports relevant to laboratory and projects activities.


At the end of the study program, the thesis stimulates further the capability to apply knowledge and comprehension: indeed the student must face a specific problem and is stimulated to find original solutions. The quality of this work is evaluated during the public dissertation and defense of the thesis.
