A major renovation in teaching geoinformatics has been made at Aalto University, Finland. In this article, the development process and courses in the new Master in Geoinformatics are described from the perspective of photogrammetry and laser scanning. However, the new curriculum includes teaching in photogrammetry, laser scanning, remote sensing, geodesy, cartography, and geoinformation techniques, covering all aspects of the surveying sciences. The teaching language in all courses is English, allowing international students to participate. In addition, the new curriculum is part of the Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering. The students participating in this masters get a double degree. Aalto University grants the degree of Master of Science (Technology), and the Technical University of Denmark grants the degree of Master of Science in Earth and Space Physics and Engineering.
