The MSc programme in Earth and Space Physics and Engineering will provide you with competencies within research and development of satellite, space-, aircraft-, and ground-based measuring methods as well as mathematical and physical models for monitoring, mapping, and exploring large-scale physical structures and processes on Earth and in the universe.
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 andenvironmental 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 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.
NB! Please note that the programme is NOT concerned with aerospace engineering.
On the programme, you will learn to combine scientific knowledge with interdisciplinary technological competencies with a view to developing sustainable, advanced solutions—such as instrumentation, modelling, and data processing methods for use in, e.g., climate and environmental monitoring, the search for new resources, space exploration, or mapping and navigation on Earth.
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
All four study lines share a common interdisciplinary basis, comprising Earth and space physics, mathematics, and electronics. You should be aware, however, that the choice of courses in the students’ individual study plan offers a high degree of flexibility. Therefore, you have every opportunity to design your own study programme and career by choosing from the wide range of courses offered at DTU.
