Regular duration of studies: 4 semesters

ECTS credits: 120

Course language: English

with restricted admission: no

Study structure and contents

The Master's program in Remote Sensing and Geoinformatics is research-based and makes use of the unique capabilities available at KIT in these fields. The first and second semesters of the two-year program set a common basis in remote sensing and geoinformatics techniques and applications. At the same time, a selection of one out of six profiles allows for an individual specialization according to the student's interests. Two lab rotations in the third semester allow students detailed insights into the scientific work of self-selected research groups at KIT and beyond, and help them gain hands-on research experience. A six-month MSc thesis is completed in the fourth semester.

The program language is English. Selected supplementary courses in any language may be chosen from other KIT programs to complement the desired profile of the students.


If your BSc is in Geodesy, Geophysics, Geoecology, Geosciences, Meteorology or similar, you do qualify for the MSc program. Details need to be clarified individually.

You do meet the language requirements if you have obtained one of the test scores listed in the admission regulations, or have taken English lessons continuously from 8th grade to the German Abitur.
