Bridging Courses

Although there are no mandatory prerequisites for this exam, students are strongly recommended to take it after Integrated Geographical Databases.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding

The student will acquire the knowledge of the systems currently used in various fields of geomatics, understanding also the methodological bases.

Applaying knowledge and understanding

The course is strogly practical. The student will apply the knowledge propre during all stages of the course and the term will be able to implement all its skills.

Making judgements

The student will also be able to work on projects, developing skills that allow him/her to deal with unexpected situations and find original solutions.

Communication skills

The student will be able to communicate in different ways (reports, presentations, etc.) the results and synthesisof his/her work.

Learning skills

Since this branch of computer science applied to geosciences is constantly and rapidly changing, the student will be able to learn for themselves the new techniques and methodologies.
