BSc education

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.

Bachelor of Civil Engineering

In the bachelor of Civil Engineering we teach Dynamics (CTB1210 - 5 EC) in the first year, and Surveying and Mapping (CTB3310 - 4 EC) in the third year, and we participate in the courses Introduction to Civil Engineering (CTB1120 - 5 EC), and Monitoring and stability of dikes and embankments (CTB3425 – 4 EC).

Programming instruction-session of the 2nd year bachelor course AESB2120 Instrumentation and signals with Matlab.

Bachelor of Applied Earth Sciences

In the bachelor of Applied Earth Sciences we teach Mechanics 1 and 2 in the first year (AESB1320 and AESB1420 – both 5 EC), we participate in Introduction to Geophysics and Remote Sensing (AESB1440 – 5 EC), and we teach Instrumentation and signals with Matlab (AESB2120 – 5 EC) and Geostatistics and Remote Sensing (AESB2440 – 5 EC), both in the second year. Also we participate in the 2nd year field work in Vesc (AESB2430 and AESB2431).

The second year BSc-course AESB2440 Geostatistics and Remote Sensing is connected to the Geological Fieldwork in the South-Eastern part of France. View from the top of the mountain over the La Motte-Chalancon area.

Classification map made by second year Applied Earth Sciences students during the fieldwork in France. In the field, students carry out a reconnaissance of the terrain, using also GPS-positioning. The resulting ground truth data are used for the purpose of training classification of remote sensing data, and finally a supervised classification of a Landsat-image of the area is performed.

Course materials

As an example for the CTB3310 Surveying and Mapping course a concise reader on GPS positioning has been developed.
