About Remote Sensing
Masters degrees in Remote Sensing equip postgraduates with the skills to collect, model and disseminate topographic and geomatic data of different geographical areas.
Related subjects include Topography and Geographic Information Systems. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Geography, Geology, or Environmental Science.
Remote Sensing encompasses the use of satellite or aircraft-based sensor technologies to detect and classify objects on Earth. This means a whole host of terrestrial and aquatic areas may be analysed and defined using geomatic and sometimes bathymetric techniques.
From glaciers and caverns, to lakes and oceans, training will encompass the collection of data about geographical features through practices such as GIS (geographical information systems) and geovisualisation.
For example, you might model the features of a land mass to determine its sustainability for urban planning. Alternatively, you may examine populations of wild animals across certain areas, and investigate best practise for their conservation.
Expertise in this field may also be applied to roles in the military and intelligence services, commercial and economic practices such as retail marketing, as well as humanitarian projects.

The MSc in Remote Sensing enables students to develop advanced research skills in remote sensing. The objective of the program is to accommodate students interested in studying aspects of remote sensing that are not contained in the geographical research domain.
The degree is the leading Master's programme in remote sensing and environmental mapping available in the UK.
This innovative, interdisciplinary programme combines the areas of remote sensing and spatial analysis to provide a broad overview of the subject, with scope for specialisation.
Given the wider development of Citizen GIS and an increased public awareness and knowledge of the power and value of spatial data, vastly increased amounts of such data from different sources are now available to researchers.
Do you want to contribute to solving multidisciplinary and complex issues using Geo- information science, geo-informatics and remote sensing? Then the master's Geo- Information Science is a perfect match for you!.
The MSc in Geoinformatics addresses the growing need for science-trained postgraduates who are technically aware and competent to work in the field of geoinformatics, particularly as applied to environmental and resource management.
Our Environmental Monitoring, Modelling and Management MSc is a multidisciplinary course that will give you a deeper understanding of the processes and techniques for managing environmental change.
The MSc in Environmental Dynamics and Climate Change course places particular emphasis on recent global and regional environmental and climatic change, the scientific basis and limitations of models and data collection techniques.
The MSc in Geographic Information and Climate Change course provides cross-disciplinary training in the scientific basis of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Satellite Remote Sensing and Earth System Modelling alongside aspects of climate change.
This programme offers expert understanding of the latest developments in geographical information science (GIS), mixing practical training, theoretical knowledge and an ability to apply learned skills in any software environment.
The Disasters, Adaptation & Development MA, MSc course takes a social development perspective, exploring topics such as human vulnerability, response to natural and technological hazards and to hazards associated with climate change.
At the School of GeoSciences, we examine the interactions between the Earth’s geology, atmosphere, oceans and life, as well as considering our own role and impact on our planet.
Our postgraduate programmes are specifically designed to enhance your career prospects and research expertise. Students will benefit from our broad range of industrial partners and internationally leading research expertise, and will get the opportunity to work within our research groups.
