This master Fundamentals of remote sensing proposed in partnership with Sorbonne Université and several Grandes Ecoles of the Paris region in the second year, trains physicists specialized in remote sensing. It covers the entire data production chain (orbitography, wave propagation, radiative transfer, data and image processing, physical modelling and applications). It allows students to do a PhD thesis in Geophysics, Environmental Science or Applied Science. It also gives them the opportunity to work directly in technology companies in the space and telecommunication sector.
The 1st year in the Earth and Planet Sciences, Environment - Fundamentals of Remote Sensing programme at University of Paris is a common path with the 1st year of Master in Geophysics. The 2nd year allows student to further focus on the fundamentals of remote sensing and is organized jointly with the training MOCES (Meteorology, Oceanography, Climate, Engineering for Space Observation) of Sorbonne University.
