The program combines physics and electronics engineering. It is application-oriented and provides knowledge in the fields of remote sensing, earth observation, retrieval theory, electronics, and communications.
Lectures in digital image processing, as well as architecture and design of integrated digital systems, impart advanced skills and methods in processing. Methods of data transmission in communication networks complete the range in the field of communications.
The structure of the program is modular and comprises mandatory modules, specialization subjects, elective modules, and practical courses. In the first academic year (semesters one and two), students learn the foundations and choose one out of two specialization subjects (either Physics for Space Observation or Information Technologies for Space). In the second academic year (semesters three and four), the study of the specialization subject continues and research starts, culminating in the Master’s thesis.
Academic admission requirements include a first academic degree (equivalent to the Bachelor’s degree) in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Electrical or Information Engineering with Management, Systems Engineering, Industrial Mathematics or a course of studies which does not reveal any significant differences in the content, scope, and requirements of those mentioned above, with at least 180 credit points (CP) according to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS), thereof 90 CP in Physics or 65 CP in Electrical Engineering or Information Technology and 16 CP in Mathematics courses.

The University of Bremen is a public university in Bremen, Germany, with approximately 23,500 people from 115 countries. It is one of 11 institutions that were successful in the category “Institutional Strategies” of the Excellence Initiative launched by the Federal Government and the Federal States in 2012. The university was also successful in the categories “Graduate Schools” and “Clusters of Excellence” of the initiative.
Its commitment was rewarded with the title “Stadt der Wissenschaft 2005” (City of Science of 2005), which science, politics, business, and culture won jointly for Bremen and Bremerhaven, by the Foundation for German Science (Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft).

On and near campus, there are single flats and shared flats for up to eight people, provided by the Student Service Office (in German: "Studierendenwerk"). The rent per person for these rooms ranges from 200 EUR to 400 EUR. See http://www.stw-bremen.de/ for application and further information. However, managing to get a room in one of the shared flats can be hard, and the waiting lists for single apartments are long. Most students do not live in these residences. Instead, they usually find a room or flat on the private market. The price range is higher there.
