In the Remote Sensing, geoInformation, and Visualisation Master's degree programme, you will develop an advanced understanding of remote sensing in theory and in practice. The programme begins by addressing fundamental principles in the recording and processing of spatial data as they are typically gathered by remote sensing devices. The programme teaches advanced scientific principles of geosciences, computer sciences, physics, chemistry, and biology to quantify environmental processes, the recording of remote sensing data and their interaction with the environment. The programme also teaches practical skills in the application of modern data processing methods, especially machine learning methods and big data approaches. It will grant you an overview of the broad range of available remote sensing technologies and data-processing methodologies. You will learn how to apply these technologies and methods to specific problems in (geo)scientific and applied scenarios.
We use modern data visualisation tools to analyse and prepare our data, for example, in the generation of prognoses, scientific communication, and the comprehensive presentation of data to representatives from other disciplines as well as non-specialist decision-makers. The programme thereby offers a comprehensive, interdisciplinary understanding of geoscientific questions.
