If you want to study Earth Observation or Remote Sensing, please contact one of our members.
The following courses cover Earth observation and satellite remote sensing, and are lectured by the staff of the Earth Observation Laboratory.
FYS-3001 Physics of Remote Sensing – 10 ECTS credits
FYS-3023 Applied Remote Sensing – 10 ECTS credits
The following Bachelor level courses are highly relevant to our research activities, to the master projects offered, and are recommended to those who want to work with us:
FYS-2006 Signal processing – 10 ECTS credits
FYS-2010 Image analysis – 10 ECTS credits
FYS-3012 Pattern recognition – 10 ECTS credits
STA-3001 Computer-intensive statistics – 10 ECTS credits
STA-3002 Multivariable statistical analysis – 10 ECTS credits
Note that courses are given both as master level courses and Ph.D. level courses, distinguished by the course code (e.g., Fys-3xxx vs. Fys-8xxx). They are lectured together, but there might be differences in the curriculum and course requirements.
Several students have visited the Earth Observation group as interns for a few weeks or months. If you are interested in doing an internship with us, please get in touch with one of our staff members.
