The eight Universities of Applied Sciences in Switzerland are offering the practically oriented MSE master’s programme. In this course of study, you can benefit from a diverse range of courses structured in 16 profiles, which offer great scope for personal choice and have a network of specialists and students all across Switzerland.

With the MSE profile in Geomatics, you will be able to secure your place in the future-oriented and multi-faceted geospatial industry. You will specialise in selected aspects of geomatics such as surveying, visualising and processing geodata and you will become a specialist in Spatial Big Data Science, Geographic Information Science, GIS, GPS or Cartography. 

Customise your course of study

The central element of the course of study is the individual specialization in your profile. You will study this specialization with theoretical and practical work at an institute of the FHNW School of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geomatics. You will be accompanied and supervised throughout the course of the study by a personal advisor. Thus, you acquire a set of unique skills at a high level within the framework of selected theory modules as well as practical research and development projects.

Personal Advisors

Personal advisors plan your studies with you according to your personal study goals. The advisors are available throughout your studies to discuss any issues. Thus, you benefit individually from the specialist knowledge of the research and teaching staff of the Institute of Geomatics at FHNW Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz to achieve your professional aims.
