Dear students,

I send this message to inform you that MSc students of our department can still register for the optional subject entitled „Cartographic Information Processing & School Cartography” and can get two ECTS credits. It will be taught in English language by professors visiting us from Brazilian and Litvanian universities. The teaching period will be only between April 25 and May 8, two hours a day. 

You can find the planned topics at  the end of this message. If you are interested to register for the subject, please send your Neptun code to this e-mail address as fast as you can, and I am going to forward it for the Neptun administrator, because only she can make your registration (the registration period is over and you cannot do it). 

If you have any question, do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards, 
Jesus Reyes
