Interdisciplinary Graduate Education Program in Remote Sensing

Virginia Tech University

Blacksburg, VA, United States 🇺🇸

In today’s changing world, Earth system research, ranging from terrestrial ecosystem processes to ionosphere dynamics, requires an integrative and broad-scale perspective. At Virginia Tech we address this need through a Remote Sensing graduate program that prepares students not only in the science of the Earth system but also in the engineering, data analytics, and social science perspectives required for the next generation of PhD scientists to work at the cutting edge of scientific inquiry. Our Interdisciplinary Graduate Education Program in Remote Sensing prepares scientists who work together to design sensors, analyze data, and engage critical social and policy questions of our time.
