Master's Programme in Geoinformatics


Applying for graduation

Students can apply for graduation in Sisu when all courses required for the master's degree have been registered in Sisu, and the master’s thesis submitted to evaluation (or completed).

Graduation is sought through the study plan in Sisu and therefore it is crucial that the study plan is up to date, reviewed and approved by programme administrative staff.
The courses shown in the study plan will also be printed on the degree certificate.

Note that you can apply for the approval and evaluation of the thesis in eAge and apply for graduation in Sisu at the same time.
