Course Details

Objectives : The Fundamentals of remote sensing course aims to train physicists specializing in observation of the Earth and planets, from drones to satellites. It is offered in partnership with Sorbonne University and the grandes écoles of the Paris region in the second year of a master's. It covers the entire data production chain (orbitography, wave propagation, radiative transfer, data and image processing, physical modeling and applications). It allows students to pursue a doctorate in geophysics, environmental sciences or applied sciences in a public or private research laboratory. It also offers them the possibility of entering the job market directly.

Public concerned : Students or people in activity or job search (continuing education)

Degree Level (EU) : 7 - (EQC level or equivalent)

Admission requirements : M1: level L3 geosciences, physics, mathematics
M2: level M1 geosciences, physics, mathematics, 2nd year of engineering school, engineering degree
The course is open to continuing education and validation of prior learning (VAE)

Targeted careers : In high-tech companies in the space and telecommunications sector (startup, SME or large industrial group):
The Fundamentals of remote sensing course leads to the professions of teacher, teacher-researcher, researcher; R&D engineer, system engineer, software development engineer; project manager, consultant, manager, sales manager.
