Cartography, geoinformatics and remote sensing

The program Cartography, geoinformatics, and remote sensing aims to prepare top specialists in in given geographical disciplines including scientific and language skills. Study aims at the master graduates of geoinformatics and cartography but also at graduates of related disciplines like informatics or cognitive psychology from the Czech Republic and the whole Central European region.

Postgraduate study further develops theoretical as well as methodological skill focused on the particular scientific area of interest. Students regularly participate in ongoing projects both national ( (GAČR; TAČR Éta, Zéta; NAKI etc) and internationally based (H2020, Interreg etc).

Students also regularly cooperate with the commercial sector and further develop their communitacion, presentation, and team work skills.

Graduates of the program should be prepared primarily for further scientific careers in academic and research institutions, but also for potential employment in the private sector.

  • Uplatnění absolventa

    The graduates are able to cooperate both on the national and international level. They can apply the acquired qualification as leaders and senior scientist especially in following institutions:

    - academic and research institutions focused on cartography and geoinformatics (CzechGlobe, Geonika), cognitive sciences (Academy of Science).

    - commercial sector - research and development as well as project management in applied research.

    - management of science and project development.

    - state and ministry institutes (public administration bodies) at all levels of organisation (local, regional, country).

    Graduates can generally address conceptual questions, scientific and organisational activities, and also teaching and transferring the experience knowledge.

  • Praxe

    Practical training (not including laboratory and field work) is not a compulsory part of the Ph.D. program.

  • Standardy kvalifikačních prací

    The recommended form of the Ph.D. thesis is a commented set of articles with an introductory, discussion and summarising text. The language of the thesis is not explicitly specified, however, English is recommended. In the case of the theses written in Czech or Slovak language of the thesis, an English summary is required. Alternatively, the Ph.D. thesis may be submitted as a scientific monograph with the appropriate structure of the text, after receiving the Doctoral board approval. To submit a Ph.D. thesis, a minimum number of three accepted scientific articles or applied outputs, such as approved method / software, are required regardless of the thesis format as the minimum number. For an example of scientific papers, at least one first-author impacted article (in the Web of Science database), another first-author article (at least in the Scopus or Web of Science database) and another a co-author's reviewed article are required necessary. In the case of submitting the a Ph.D. thesis as an annotated set of articles, the minimum number of three scientific publications copying the above structure is required.
