Remote Sensing is the science and art of acquisition of information about ground objects from far distances using airborne and space-borne sensors and platforms. From 1970 by ongoing process of launching airborne and space-borne and advancements of related sciences such as aerospace, mechanic, computer and electric, a tangible progress can be seen in spatial, temporal, spectral and radiometric resolutions of remote sensing images. Nowadays, different remote sensing sensors are able to provide a vast range of information from different layers of the Earth such as lithosphere, atmosphere, and ionosphere layers. In other words, today, all interested references in gathering earth oriented information need to learn remote sensing. The possibility of collecting physical and geometrical information from the Earth's surface in a suitable time, scale, and cost as compared to field measurement techniques, has attracted the attentions of research centers and universities to training and utilization of this new science.

With the advent of hyperspectral, microwave, electromagnetic, gravity, altimetry and other different sensors, the accessibility of geo-referenced data is facilitated. In this regard, in 1378, civil engineering - remote sensing was established in the school of surveying and geospatial engineering, college of engineering, university of Tehran. One of the goals of the remote sensing department is to train the experts and experienced by creating different thesis statements in various geo-science application in order to contribute them in the researches of Iranian organizations and scientific centers and in developing remote sensing knowledge as in other countries.

 

 

The program duration takes minimum of 4 semesters and the maximum duration is determined by the laws of the Iran's Science, Research and Technology ministry.

 

Based on the definitions and contents in previous sections, the main ability of remote sensing graduates in acquiring and processing digital data and the effective use of them in different processes are as follows:

 

  • Providing the optimal spatial data required in the design, implementation and management of construction, environmental, military projects, and etc.
  • Providing coverage maps and other earth information with proper management and high speed and accuracy using remote sensing data and digital image processing techniques.
  • Making automated extraction, reconstruction, management, processing, saving, and displaying of satellite information and their application in the design, implementation and management of civil, environmental and military projects.
  • Collaborating with relevant institutions and organizations in various strategic projects.
  • Identification and acquisition the latest scientific and technological concepts in the field of aerial and satellite systems and innovation in the scientific and research fields.
  • Identification and monitoring of destructive environmental phenomena and provide a convenient and efficient solutions based on the features of the country.
