ESPACE is an interdisciplinary Master's programme, which makes use of and benefits from Munich's unique collection of industry in the fields of space, science and technology, research institutions and universities. The cooperating members of the programme are Ludwig Maximilians University, the University of the Federal Armed Forces and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR).
The ESPACE curriculum connects courses on satellite applications in Earth System Science, Remote Sensing, and Navigation with courses on space engineering, spacecraft technology, and satellite data management. The programme consists of compulsory foundation courses over two semesters. For the third semester, students may choose one of the three specialisations: Earth System Science, Remote Sensing or Navigation. The programme is completed by writing a Master's thesis and defending it in a Master's colloquium within a period of six months.
In addition to the regular ESPACE Master's programme, the ESPACE Double Degree Programme in cooperation with Wuhan University is an option that provides further lectures in remote sensing and GIS.
