OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

Graduates have excellent job opportunities in Space Agencies, Space Industry and Research Institutes. Typical careers are pursued in the fields of satellite based measurements, earth observation, message transmission or navigation.

Teacher training (Lehramt)

No courses available for students training to be teachers at state-run schools

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Graduates qualify for admission to doctoral studies.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS OF PROGRAM

Detailed list of available courses in online course prospectus

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

The program is application-oriented and provides knowledge in the fields of remote sensing, earth observation, retrieval theory, space electronics and communications. Students receive a solid hands-on training. Lectures in digital image processing as well design of digital systems provide advanced skills and methods in data processing. Methods of data transmission in communication networks complete the topics in the field of communications.

For specialization students choose one out of two subject-specific areas:  Physics for Space Observation or Information Technologies for Space. In these areas students extend their knowledge to have a clear professional focus. In the laboratory practical course, students get the possibility to gain and improve practical skills.
