The Visiting Scholar program will be at the Institute for Geoinformatics (hereafter referred as IFGI) at University of Münster, Germany (Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, hereafter referred to as WWU).

Application Procedure

Apply for the program with Dr. Piotr Jankowski. You can go for a semester of study at IFGI either in the fall or the spring. Fall application deadline is May 1. Spring deadline is November 1.

The academic semesters at WWU do not overlap exactly with semesters at SDSU. The fall semester at WWU starts around October 15 and ends by February 15. The spring semester starts around April 15 and ends by July 15. With a bit of planning you can still be able to complete in one academic year a semester of study at IFGI combined with another semester at SDSU.

To start the application procedure you will need to prepare your CV and develop a plan of courses and/or research projects you would like to participate. Review classes and projects. Click on the English version in the upper left corner.
