New Master’s Degree Program at the University of Potsdam, Part 1

Today we announced the new English-language master’s degree program “Remote Sensing, geoInformation and Visualization” at the University of Potsdam. The program focuses on the gathering, processing, analysing, and presentation of geoscientific spatial data by using remote-sensing technologies and data-processing methods. The program uses models and theories to assess geoinformation, and then to prepare and communicate our findings with modern means of visualization.

In the Remote Sensing, geoInformation and Visualization master’s degree program, you will develop an advanced understanding of remote sensing in theory and practice. The program begins by addressing fundamental principles in the recording and processing of spatial data as they are typically gathered by means of remote sensing methodologies.

The program teaches advanced scientific principles of physics, chemistry, and biology to quantify environmental process, the recording of remote sensing data and their interaction with the environment, as well as practical skills in the application of modern data processing methods. The program 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 scientific and applied scenarios.

For more information please visit the program’s webpage. Admission, application and enrollment will start soon after final approval by the responsible ministry.
