The best of the best are coming to Bremen
Many physics and electrical engineering graduates already find employment in the aerospace industry, Paul explains. The new master’s degree is related to these disciplines. “It made sense to allow them to gain even more specific technical knowledge.” The international focus of the course enables it to attract “the best of the best”, as Ladstätter-Weißenmayer puts it. The figures speak for themselves: there were more than 150 applications from around the world, with only 20 places available on the course.
Conclusions on climate trends
Over four semesters, students will become experts in earth observation and data analysis, while exploring the technology required. The aim is to enable them to see the bigger picture. “We give physicists a background in electrical engineering, and show electrical engineers how the equipment is actually used in practice, and what the specific requirements are,” explains Steffen Paul. A classic practical example is air pollution data, adds Ladstätter-Weißenmayer. “It allows us to draw important conclusions, for example on climate trends, and on the impact these may have on the population and on economic systems.” After around two years of intense preparation, both of them are pleased that the new degree course is now up and running. “We are keen to see whether the expectations of the students will match our ideas,” says Paul.
