external, but a lecturer of the EAGLE study program as point of contact
Experience in an internship at a research institute, a NGO, IGO or company the real-life application of Earth Observation for specific tasks are highly important to increase your remote sensing skills. In addition, developing, preparing and organizing internships and the tasks independently is important for later tasks.
The internship can cover a variety of topics depending on the host institution. Applications of remote sensing data in (among others) land and water management, conservation, exploration, energy provision, administration, or policy should be learned. Its daily usage and challenges should be explored, as well as the processing, or specialised application of remote sensing products and the related challenges. Internships need to be organized by the students, but a lecturer will supervise the internship. The lecturer will provide access to his/her network in order to ease the application process and the learning outcome.
After the internship, the internships aims and outcome will be presented to fellow students and the lecturers. The background of the hosting institution as well as the aim of their internship, their work during the internship as well as the outcome ought to be covered. Moreover, the students are encouraged to provide insights into the respective internship in order to help fellow students to gain a better understanding of the hosting organization and to support them in finding a suitable internship.
The work during the internship as well as the outcome should be covered by this presentation. Moreover the students are encouraged to provide valuable insights into the respective internship in order to help fellow students to gain a better understanding of the hosting organization and to support them in finding a suitable internship.
For internships the students are encouraged to take advantage of the global EAGLE network to apply for internship. It should be noted that the partners are not obliged to accept you as intern. The costs are also not necessarily covered by the partners.
One internship for 2 months is mandatory, doing more internships is possible.
Coding examples and individual work will be covered
Various software programs will be used, but mainly OpenSource software such as R.
Different techniques will be introduced and practically applied.
The content of scientific with regard to the audience will be discussed.
