The classroom is also equipped with specialized software which is most commonly used in the academic and professional world (MiraMon, Envi, ArcGIS, Definiens (eCognition), etc).

Most of the bibliography for the Master is in English. According to the rules of the UAB, faculty members may use either Catalan or Spanish in class; naturally the students can express themselves oral or writing in emails, documents, etc, in the language that they prefer (typically Catalan, Spanish or English). Past experience has shown that students with a Romance language (Spanish, Italian, etc) background are able to follow explanations in Catalan in less than one month. The UAB offers free Catalan courses. Contact to the International Welcome Point for more details:
