In addition, developing, preparing and organizing internships and the tasks independently is important for later tasks.

 

Content

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.
