Remote Sensing

The Specialized Master in Remote Sensing attracts students from a wide range of disciplines helping to understand the role remote sensing plays in understanding the environment. It attracts not only those with a background in environmental sciences but also those with a background in the fundamental natural sciences (e.g., physics, mathematics, biology, computing) who wish to exploit their skills in an Earth system context. The Specialized Master will support individuals interested in developing key scientific skills next to vocational competences allowing them to work in remote sensing related positions in research institutions, as well as public and private sectors. This highly interdisciplinary Master's program develops methodological, analytical and computational competencies needed to analyse Earth observation data. The program has a clear research focus, which is particular suitable for those planning a scientific career (e.g., continue with a PhD).

Characterization of the Master's program

  • Focus on the use of Earth observation methods, techniques and experiments
  • Excellent mentoring opportunities from a broad set of expertise
  • Collaboration in national and international projects and working at the research front
  • Extended master thesis opportunity with research focus (60 ECTS credits)
