This paper presents the development of a new elective in the Electrical and Computer Engineering program at the University of Texas at El Paso in signal and image processing using remote sensing as its central theme. Remote sensing proved to be a beneficial framework for teaching signal and image processing due to the ready availability of multispectral data sets and the number of linkages of remote sensing to contemporary topics in society. Associated with the development of the course have been efforts in student mentoring, the writing of a textbook, and education of the general public through a museum outreach project.
