The hallmark of the programme is that it combines scientific expertise with cross-disciplinary technological competences in subjects such as instrumentation, modelling and data processing. The proposed training will focus on developing, designing and applying technological solutions to monitor, identify, model and predict the physical parameters and processes on a large scale, i.e. Earth and space. The technological solutions can, for example, be observational concepts, instruments and data processing methods. Other solutions may be modelling, systems and services for decision support and monitoring applications in, for example, climate and environmental monitoring, mapping and navigation, resource exploration and space exploration.

Career Opportunities 

With a master's degree in Earth and Space Physics and Engineering you have a wide range of job opportunities in Danish and international high-tech companies as well as in international organizations such as the European Space Agency (ESA), the U.S. space agency NASA, and the European and national authorities.

MSc’s in Earth and Space Physics and Engineering are also very attractive to the geo and advisory industry where they help solve tasks in surveying and mapping—including exploration of raw materials, environmental monitoring, and risk assessment. Potential employers in this area are surveying and mapping firms such as larger surveyor firms, and public authorities, Danish Geodata Agency, The Danish Meteorological Institute, the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland, Maritime Safety Administration, the Danish Road Directorate, the Regional authorities, and municipalities.


To be admitted to this programme, you must have an academic bachelor degree.

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet's hovedadresse ligger i Lyngby 10 kilometer nord for København, og det er primært her at DTU studerende bliver undervist. Du kan tage turen til DTU i Lyngby med bil eller ved hjælp af offentlige transportmidler. Der kører flere busser næsten lige til døren og Lyngby Station ligger 2 km. væk, men også her er der gode busforbindelser, f.eks. bus nr. 300S mod Nærum eller bus nr. 190. Begge har stoppested på Anker Engelunds Vej.
