Technologies for monitoring and mapping Earth and exploring the universe play a prominent role in our everyday lives. Without these technologies, we would not have GPS navigation in cars, reliable weather forecasts, global climate and environmental monitoring, or global telecommunication.
We are in great need of new and innovative methods and services for monitoring Earth’s climate change and measuring the effects of the actions we take. The number of new applications and services for navigation and mapping will explode in the coming years—e.g. with the availability of more accurate data from navigation satellites, images from Earth observation satellites, improved (tele)communications, and increasingly sophisticated smartphones. Furthermore, the search for new energy and mineral resources—and more efficient use of existing resources—is also a task of world-wide importance.
As an Earth and Space Physics and Engineering graduate, you can make a substantial contribution to finding new, sustainable, and advanced technological solutions that contribute to solving the challenges society is facing.
Study programme focus
The Earth and Space Physics and Engineering programme at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) focuses on developing, designing, and applying innovative and advanced technological solutions for monitoring, mapping, modelling, and predicting large-scale physical structures and processes—i.e. on Earth, the solar system, and the universe.
The MSc programme in Earth and Space Physics and Engineering allows you to specialize in one of the four study lines:
- Earth Physics and Exploration
- Environmental and Climate Monitoring
- Mapping and Navigation
- Space Research
With an MSc in Earth and Space Physics and Engineering, you have a wide range of job opportunities with Danish and international high-tech companies, international space agencies, and national authorities. Furthermore, you might get the opportunity to continue your studies and do a PhD, for instance at DTU.
