This course is intended to provide a basic grasp on remote sensing to electronics engineering students. Remote Sensing, especially where Earth Observation is concerned, is increasingly used in various application fields and it is a booming employment market hooked to the general space industry growth. The course will set students to a good start in this field by providing both a theoretical background and practical examples including experiments with real-world Earth Observation data, far beyond the sheer Google Earth collage of images. The connection with the Lombardy Aerospace Industry Cluster drives the tuning of the course syllabus towards the hottest topics on the marketplace
