Project course in remote sensing and digital image processing
7.5 ECTS credits
The aim of the course is that students develop the ability to carry out all aspects of a minor remote sensing project. Students develop or select a real-world topic/question in the field of remote sensing, identify the relevant steps required to complete the project, and submit a project plan including data collection, preliminary treatment of raw data, image processing, image classification, and accuracy assessment. Students justify the selection of method and data that are needed to answer the research question through a literature study. The entire process and the final results are documented and presented in a midterm seminar and a final seminar, including peer review of the work of other students. Projects are completed in groups (of 2 students).
Progressive specialisation: G2F (has at least 60 credits in first‐cycle course/s as entry requirements)
Education level: Undergraduate level
Admission requirements: 60 ECTS credits completed in the Surveying Technology and Geographical IT Engineering programme or the Surveying and Mapping programme, including Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry, 7.5 ECTS credits, or equivalent.
Selection is usually based on your grade point average from upper secondary school or the number of credit points from previous university studies, or both.
