The Center for Space and Remote Sensing Research, a prime research center, was established on July 1st, 1984 at National Central University. Its primary missions are in the research and teaching of space and remote sensing related sciences, and in the development of new remote sensing technology and applications. Currently, there are more than 110 personnel working at the center including: a director, chaired by one of the professors; a secretary; researchers that include professors, associate professors, assistant professors, and assistant researchers; technicians that include specialists, engineers, artificers, technical workers, and contract employees associated with various research projects. In addition, the faculty members at the center are jointly appointed with the other departments where they offer courses and supervise graduate students related to their relevant expertise. Since 2008, the Master of Science Program in Remote Sensing Science and Technology has started for those people who desire advanced specialization in this field in order to further enhance and broaden personal intelligence and technology in remote sensing.
