This is a well tested and upgraded course for hands-on GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and Remote Sensing (Earth Satellite and drones). It includes theory, supervised practicals and fieldwork based on real cases called “challenges”. It is guided by recognised teachers, some with more than 20 years of international experience in more than 20 countries.

Add to this learning the international young environment of the University of Twente summer camp of Curious-U with more than 300 potential friends to make, festivals and games, and you get a ticket to an unforgettable Summer experience.

We enjoy it when you enjoy it, and at the same time, we are strongly committed to teaching and mentoring in this course as we do in our University. You will not come back empty handed. Now, let’s talk about this course.
