Technologies for monitoring and mapping the Earth and exploring space play a prominent role in our everyday lives. Without them there would be no satellite navigation in cars, reliable weather forecasts on television, global climate and environmental monitoring systems or global telecommunications. The future will bring further development of these services and systems, not to mention a host of new challenges.
Earth & Space Physics and Engineering is a programme where the emphasis is on developing, designing and applying technological solutions for monitoring, mapping, modelling and predicting physical structures on a large scale—i.e. the Earth and space.
The world needs innovative and advanced solutions in order to learn more about the solar system and universe. We need new monitoring methods and systems so that we can map changes in the environment and climate, and assess the impact of the measures taken.
The search for new energy and mineral resources, and ways to use existing deposits more efficiently, is also a task of great importance to society. With more accurate data from navigation satellites, images from Earth observation satellites and improved communication facilities, the number of new navigation and mapping systems/applications is also set to explode in the next few years.
