This minor is a full time online minor.

Spatial Information Science (SIS)
  1. Conceptualize and represent the real world in digital geospatial data.
  2. Identify and apply methods for the exploration, analysis, integration, synthesis and presentation of digital spatial data and imagery in a geographic information system (GIS).
  3. Apply basic statistical methods to geographic data to gain insights.
Spatial Planning for Governance (SPG)
After the course the student is able to use spatial concepts, instruments and measures in a given spatial planning situation;
  1. Theory and context
    • Describe the evolution of spatial planning theory and practice and how these relate to notions of sustainable development and resilience.
    • Explain the political, legal and institutional context of a spatial planning situation.
  2. Analysis of a planning situation
    • Analyse a given spatial planning problem/situation, identifying key stakeholders and their interests.
    • Describe the trade-offs between competing interests in a given spatial planning situation.
  3. Advise on a planning situation
    • Develop and present a concept plan for addressing a given spatial planning situation.
  4. Recommend evaluation and future needs
    • Elaborate on ways to measures to guide, monitor and evaluate the realization of spatial plans.
    • Discuss how spatial analysis can assist in anticipating future needs and emerging issues in society.
Technical Environmental Engineering (TEE), modelling the processes in system Earth
  1. Describe cycles of nutrients, water and carbon and underlying principles such as conservation of mass and energy (Process thinking and conceptualization).
  2. Apply schematizing complex systems using existing techniques to capture them in equations (System thinking and model conceptualization).
  3. Apply probability density functions and concepts of correlations and regressions (Stochasticity) to estimations of relevant parameters of earth system processes.
  4. Apply parameter uncertainty like variability, RMSE and R2, to make interpretations of outputs of models that simulate earth system processes (Parameter uncertainty).
Skills for M-SE
  1. Identify and describe gaps in his/her knowledge.
  2. Plan, execute and reflect on the learning process needed to bridge the gap.
  3. Integrate knowledge formulating an actionable challenge using the CBL for M-SE approach
