Teaching remote sensing at the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences (AIMS)
The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) is an independent graduate education institute founded by Neil Turok. There are several of the institutes spread across sub-Saharan Africa, including Rwanda. AIMS offers Masters degrees in a number of areas of mathematical sciences including topics as wide ranging as climate science, pure mathematics, and big data analytics. Instructors are recruited from international universities and industry to teach their expertise in 3-week modules with a focus on experiential learning.
Professor Vodacek spent three weeks at AIMS Rwanda in March/April 2019 teaching a modified version of the graduate level remote sensing course to students in the Climate Science Masters.
