The curricular unit "Dissertation / Training Course" is an opportunity for the student to evidence knowledge/ understanding of a topic or specific topics addressed in the master's degree.

The main objectives of the dissertation are to allow students to develop their capacity to carry out scientific research, under the guidance of a supervisor and / or co-supervisor. The training course aims to assess the ability of students to meet the challenges of a labor market in constant development and promote the students' curriculum enrichment in view to their professional integration in companies working in Remote Sensing amd related fields.

Learning outcomes and competences

It is expected that students:

- have improved: (i) their research skills and ability to solve problems; ii) their ability to synthesise and integrate knowledge; ii) their critical sense.

- are able to successfully carry out dissertation / internship work and present it in a public academix assessment.

Working method



In the Dissertation/Training course, each student, under the guidance of a supervisor and/or a co-supervisor, will develop a theme related to Remote Sensing. The student will prepare a Dissertation or an Written Report which will be evaluated through public academic assessment

Mandatory literature

Vários; Revistas científicas disponibilizadas pela UP.
Various; Scentifica journals available through UP.

Comments from the literature

Each  supervisor shoud indicate the bibliography suitable for each thesis/training course.

Teaching methods and learning activities

Dissertation: The student should carry out a scientific research work in a fundamental or applied field of Remote Sensing under the guidance of a supervisor and/or co-supervisor.
