International Master Study Programme Forest Information Technology (FIT) is a joint initiative of the Faculty of Forestry of Warsaw University of Life Sciences-SGGW (WULS-SGGW) in Warsaw, Poland, and the Faculty of Forestry and Environment of the University of Sustainable Development Eberswalde (USDE). This is a double-degree, joint curriculum programme taught in English that enables its participants to achieve the Master of Science degree from both partner universities. FIT is an interdisciplinary education offer with its main focus on environmental information technologies (IT), forest ecosystem research, forest management and landscape research.
Detailed programme of studies
a) First year: First semester is placed at the USDE and characterized by impartation of basic knowledge of environmental information technologies. Second semester takes place at WULS-SGGW and focuses on the impartation of continuative knowledge of environmental information technologies including specific silvicultural contents.
