Remote Sensing and GIS

The importance of the spatial dimension in examining issues such as regional development, land use planning and environmental monitoring is widely recognized. In work of this kind, it is necessary to interrelate information derived from various sources such as census, maps, surveys, aerial photographs and satellite imagery, each of which may utilize a variety of methods for spatial referencing. The field of remote sensing deals with the science and technologies used to acquire aerial and satellite imagery, convert them into geographically located digital images and extract from them useful information about the surface including vegetation cover, the extent of urban areas and water bodies. ...

Objectives

This Master programme enables students to acquire deeper knowledge in biosciences taking into account new computational and high-throughput experimental technologies. This involves the handling of large amounts of data and thus bioinformatics and network analysis are essential elements in this modern education in biosciences.

What is Systems Biology?

Systems Biology (an extension of Biochemistry and Physiology) wants to understand and model systems: individual cells, organs and whole organisms on the basis of their constituting molecules. It integrates established disciplines in Biosciences and renovates them for the challenges of the future.

Aims of the programme

The Master of Systems Biology combines theoretical and practical education: at least 1,450 hours of practical work in computer labs and wet labs within the University’s Life Sciences Research Unit or in partner institutions (Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH), the Luxembourg Institute of Science & Technology (LIST), and the IGBMC in Strasbourg). At the end of the programme, students will be able:... [-]

Course content

Ghent University is the only university in Flanders to offer a Master of Science in Engineering Physics. Alumni of this master has solid physical know-how and the necessary skills to have a leading role in groundbreaking physics research. At the same time, they have the engineering skills that make them wanted as innovators and developers in the industry, research institutes, and universities. The engineering component of the master’s program develops skills such as analysis, design and optimization of existing and new systems, products, machines, and materials. This involves approximating physical reality by system descriptions ranging from simple rules of thumb to expert systems. The physical component follows a reductionist approach where experiment and mathematical modeling aim at understanding and reducing physics to its basics, and deriving its governing equations. Despite the more philosophical approach, a rigorous attitude remains essential and all physical theory has to withstand experimental validation.... [-]

Increased population pressure, industrialisation and intensive land use are causing depletion of natural resources and are limiting the performance of land with respect to its functions such as biomass production, carbon sequestration, water purification, etcetera. The additive effects of climate change and the above-mentioned aspects of global change influence the capacity of soils to regenerate and may even cause soil degradation.

The future capacity of soils to support (human) life is at stake. Programmes have been developed to protect the environment and to increase ecosystem resilience. Numerous directives on soil response to external pressures have been developed and implemented. A wealth of scientific knowledge is available but dispersed due to the specialisation of research groups, which makes it difficult for students to follow a focused curriculum on soils and global change at any individual university....
