UNITAR Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT)

The University of Copenhagen and UNOSAT have agreed on a collaboration model bringing UNOSAT training in the University environment to new heights. While still participating in courses in Universities in the United Sates, Switzerland, and Sweden, UNOSAT now engages in Master degree training. As of this year the Master of Disaster Management offers an intensive course in Geo Information in Disaster Situations based on a successful formula combining formal training and experience based knowledge transfer directly from UNOSAT experts and analysts. This successful methodology has already been used in several capacity development projects run by UNOSAT for UN member states and a few international organizations.

The Geospatial Information course, offered within the curriculum of the Master of Disaster Management at Copenhagen University, will be open only to a limited number of applicants among those studying each year for the Master degree and will earn each student 6 ECTS credits.
