Aims: The Doctoral Programme in Teledetection seeks to provide scientific training and researching qualifications in the field of Teledetection. It is geared towards quality training, within the framework for the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), suitable for the current demands of the society of knowledge, which provide students with a specialisation in Teledetection technics to culminate in the carrying out of a Doctoral Thesis which provides them with novel knowledge in this field. The doctoral studies shall, at minimum, guarantee the acquisition by doctoral students of the basic competencies which are in the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education, specifically: systematic understanding of a field of study of legal sciences, and mastery of its skills and methods of research; ability to conceive, design or create, implement and adapt a substantial process of research and creation; ability to make a critical and assessment analysis, and synthesis of new and complex ideas, as well as communication with the academic and scientific community and society in general about their fields of knowledge; and ability to promote, within academic and professional contexts, scientific, technological, social, artistic or cultural advance in a knowledge-based society.

Description: The Teledetection is a discipline based on measurable measures and testable hypothesis, which has been consolidated as a geographic information source of great interest and which recognises an extraordinary scientific potential and of application. Its scientific studies cover different aspects of our environment and enable greater number of options and aims: providing thematic maps, features and parameters of interest related to the water, the ground, crops and vegetation; providing with periodic and updated information for the short-term and long-term monitoring of these natural processes and contributing to a correct and successful management thereof. Its areas of application include agriculture, the agro environmental impact, natural risks, etc., apart from providing with a way of study for areas without access and/or with a minimum field support.
