Undergraduate and Master's Studies at Forest Remote Sensing

Last changed: 24 March 2021

Within Forest Remote Sensing we conduct teaching in geographical information technology (GIT) and remote sensing.

At the undergraduate level at the Master of forestry program we teach the basics of GIT as parts of different courses. At the advanced level, we provide a GIT project course, as well as a course in remote sensing in combination with forest inventory. We also provide two distance courses, Applied remote sensing in forestry at basic level and Fores remote sensing at advanced level . Each year, some student’s do their master’s theses within the remote sensing field, other master students we assist with GIT support.

The subject area is also responsible for the Remote sensing laboratory. The lab, is a teaching resource for students with the latest technology for collecting and processing of remote sensing data. The lab also serves as a meeting place for students, researchers and companies. Today, modern remote sensing equipment in the lab is mainly available for forest and technology students in their undergraduate and master’s studies. 

Courses within our subject area
