Master (MSc) in Hydrography / Oceanography



The syllabus covers the study of the marine environment: course modules are devoted to Descriptive Oceanography, Marine Geology, Marine Meteorology and Sedimentary Hydrodynamics.

You will study in depth the different sensor systems used in hydrography: single and multi-beam echo-sounders, positioning systems, inertial systems, imaging sonar, Doppler sonar… all are complex measurement systems, which require in-depth knowledge of their functioning.

Finally, you will discover the products of Hydrography: methods for managing and processing bathymetric data, digital elevation models, marine charts.
