The National Geo Information Minor allows students to develop their skills in Geographic Information Science and focuses on learning by doing. The students are challenged to become independent researchers as they design and carry out various research assignments supervised by experts in the GI field. A highlight of the minor is a 2 month internship at a societal host (company or government) where students help the host answer geographic questions using spatial data and technology.
The Geo Information Minor was created by 5 universities (VUA, UU, WUR, TUD, UT) and is currently being offered by VUA and UU.
