Estimation methods

The students treat observations affected by uncertainty in a rigorous manner. They master the main methods to adjust measurements and to estimate parameters. They apply specific models to real-world problems encountered in various experimental sciences.


The students learn several techniques for spatial mesurements, such as geodesy, aerial photogrammetry and laser scanning. They will be able to collaborate with geologists and civil engineers to master natural risks (landslides, avalanches) and to maintain infrastructures.

From digital data acquisition to change detection

The digital statement covers all three disciplines of the ENAC faculty. From the territorial scale to structural analysis and building measurement, this implies integrating methodologies specific to the different fields of activity of each Section.
