Certificate; International Institute for Geo-Information Sciences and Earth Observation (ITC) ITC offers several modules of their Postgraduate diploma and MSc degree courses as Distance courses. The six-week Distance courses (5 credits) have a weekly study load of 20 to 24 hours. The courses combine self-study with online support by ITC staff. The general approach is task-based learning that blends theory and practice. Participants access the course material through internet. All materials and (most of) the software will be provided online within ITC’s digital learning environment Blackboard. Those who decide to follow a full Postgraduate or MSc programme at ITC will be exempted from the modules they followed successfully as a Distance course.
Courses are offered in the Distance programme: * Digital Terrain Model extraction, processing and parameterization for Hydrology * Environmental Impact Assessment and Strategic Environmental Assessment with spatial decision support tools * Geostatistics and Open-Source Statistical Computing * GIS Data Quality * Hyperspectral Remote Sensing * Learning IDL for Building Expert Applications in ENVI * Multi-Hazard Risk Assessment * Principles of Databases * Principles of Geographical Information Systems * Principles of Remote Sensing * Spatial Decision Support Systems * Sustainable Agriculture
Although some courses are in high demand, only a limited number of students can be admitted. The rule is first come, first served. If the number of applications is extremely high, the course may be offered again.
Certificate; International Institute for Geo-Information Sciences and Earth Observation (ITC) For candidates with a specific request for up-to-date education in (applications of) geo-information science and earth observation, ITC offers a number of short courses leading to a certificate. Furthermore, those interested in the subject matter of one of ITC’s degree or diploma courses but not in the position to sign up for the entire duration of the course can enrol for the various Certificate courses that suit their needs.
You can also create your own individual study programme by selecting one or more relevant three-week modules (5 credits) or a block of connected modules from the degree and diploma programmes.
ITC offers the following certificate courses: - Land Policy and supporting Information Infrastructures - Advanced Earth Observation and Quantified Modelling in Applied Earth Sciences - Spatial Interventions in Urban Planning and Management - Digital Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing - GIS Operations - Cartography and Geo-Visualisation - Using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Disease Control Programmes
