M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Remote Sensing (RS) are designed for graduates with qualifications in Geography, Environmental Science, Information Technology, Land Surveying, Cartography, etc. and practitioners in the related profession and to those who want to build their knowledge and practical expertise in RS and related technologies and applications. These courses also provide research opportunities in various geoinformation related fields.


There are 2 of master programme which can be enrolled on a full-or part-time basis.


i. The Master of Science by Taught Course offers 6 compulsory subjects, 2 elective subjects and one university’s subject (3 credits). Besides, students are required to submit a master’s dissertation of (6 credits). To graduate, students must complete a total of 40 credits. Students are assessed through tests, assignments, presentations and master’s special paper (research component)


ii. The Master of Science (Remote Sensing) by research offers students the opportunity to undertake a supervised research project under the academic staff and to submit a dissertation. Students are also required to take courses on research methodology and any of the university’s subjects.


The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme is a full-research programme             (90 credits). It can be enrolled on a full-or part-time basis. Students are also required to take subjects on research methodology and one university subject (3 credits). To graduate, students must complete a research project and submit a thesis.
