Education

Our department organizes the MSc track Geoscience and Remote Sensing and participates in the MSc Track Environmental Engineering.

MSc track Geoscience and Remote Sensing (GRS)


Our Earth is changing due to the growing population, urbanisation, natural geophysical processes, land use, and climate change. How can we improve our understanding of the underlying processes and make the right decisions for the future? In order to answer these questions we need advanced remote sensing technology, together with innovative data science and modelling techniques. These are the foundations of the MSc track Geoscience and Remote Sensing (GRS). Climate Change and Natural Hazards are cross-cutting themes within the program, where we use our “Delft approach”: providing empirical results and their interpretation as input to the societal debate. 

MSc Track Environmental Engineering


The world is changing. Due to urbanisation most of the rapidly growing population lives in or around the city. The need for energy, water and other natural resources rapidly increases, while climate change asks for a decrease in the use of many of these resources. The big challenge for humanity is thus to create a sustainable living environment, a so-called circular economy, where energy neutrality and recycling are key elements.

Bachelor programme


The department Geoscience and Remote Sensing is responsible for several courses in the bachelor program of Civil Engineering, as well as in the bachelor program of Applied Earth Sciences.
