When I was looking for a program in Geographic Information Systems that would allow me to grow and deepen knowledge, combining a solid theoretical training with a strong practical component, the Master Degree Program in Geographic Information Systems and Science came to me as “the reference". Exceeded expectations! The e-learning format, despite some initial skepticism, allowed me to manage the issue of distance and availability, in no way compromising the rigor and the demand. On the contrary. I found a diversified offer, with a faculty of recognized professional and academic merit, whose support was decisive for the completion of the program. Better yet, NOVA IMS’ experience and follow-up continue well beyond the end of the program!
