The Department of Geoinformatics Systems of the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunication, and Informatics at the Gdansk University of Technology (GUT) is involved in geoinformatics research with emphasis on web based GIS, satellite navigation, ECDIS, digital mapping and other systems for maritime applications. Starting in 2003, the Department has introduced a curriculum in Geoinformatics. The curriculum is being offered in the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunication and Informatics as part of the informatics discipline at GUT, compatible with the two level (Engineer and Master degrees) Bologna program. The goal of the curriculum is to graduate engineers who design geoinformatics systems that integrate data bases with spatial, geographic information. Those systems should be platform independent and capable of running on a variety of units, from mobile devices to WWW servers. In addition, graduates are familiar with general knowledge of remote sensing and GPS navigation techniques. The curriculum is offered at both the undergraduate (two concentrations: (i) Applications and (ii) Systems are available) and graduate (two specializations: (i) Geoinformatics Technologies as mandatory and (ii) another one as elective are available) levels. Graduates have ample opportunities of employment in high tech companies in the region such as Intel Technology Poland, Jeppesen Poland,, and abroad e.g. Boeing, C-Map Italy, Thales, and Reson. The curriculum is an integral part of the research strategy offered by the Department of Geoinformatics Systems. For example, the ground satellite imagery station of Dartcom company recently acquired by the Department will be extensively used by students enrolled in the curriculum. Another direction is the involvement of students in projects related to homeland security technologies. Recently, the Department has implemented in city of Gdansk the dedicated GIS system under a European EPCIP grant .Web Based GIS for Analysis and Visualisation of Critical Infrastructure and Its Threats.. The implemented curriculum is also a part of our strategy to promote interdisciplinary education at the Gdansk University of Technology to better serve the society through a friendly use of emerging and advanced technologies.
