Introduction to the Survey


CENSIS supports the degree of Master of Science (MSc) in Sensor and Imaging Systems, introduced in 2014-15. Delivered by the Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, this is a full-time programme (12 months):

·       Semester 1 (Sept-Dec)   Taught courses, University of Glasgow
·       Semester 2 (Jan-Apr)      Taught courses, University of Edinburgh

Curriculum Review & New Delivery Methods
It is important to CENSIS that the programmes it supports appeal to the widest possible audiences. We want to hear the views of industry on the current MSc programme, including alternative ways of delivering a MSc programme in addition to (not replacing) the current full-time programme.

This survey should be completed by those with any kind of responsibility for recruitment or training, or with the authority to recommend staff for training and/or professional development.

The survey has four sections on staff training, the current MSc, different modes of MSc delivery, and you.
