Geodesy and Metrologie (B. Eng.)

The technological innovations that have taken place over recent decades have brought parallel developments for geodesy that have changed a discipline with a long tradition into a modern engineering science with a very broad spectrum of applications. Geodesy is the science of measuring and apportioning the earth into areas, points, and markings, so that we can know where our house is located, how far it is to China, how big Greenland is, etc. Geodesy deals with the recording, updating, and processing of special data (basic geo-data) and the documentation of civil engineering structures. The use of state-of-the-art data recording systems, satellite-aided measurement processes, scanning procedures and digital image processing have brought about a shift towards electronically based applications.
The aim of the course is to prepare students for high level and senior management jobs in public administration, private companies, as well as independent surveying and engineering firms. Surveyors work, for example, in the following areas: basic and property surveying, processing of aerial images and other remote sensing data, production of sets of maps, engineering surveying, quality assurance of industrial products, or planning, land division, and property appraisal.

Geoinformatics (B. Eng.)
Geoinformatics involves using all information that has a spatial reference. Some of the major areas are the recording and representation of the earth’s surface (cartography and land registry), the processing of aerial photography and satellite and radar images, as well as geographic information systems. Application programmes, databases, internet and software development form the basis for the use of geoinformatics in geodesy, geography, geology, geophysics, and ecology. Geoinformatics requires a high degree of interdisciplinary work and this means that graduates enjoy excellent and exciting career opportunities in various application areas such as environmental protection, environmental monitoring, landuse planning, tourism and leisure industry, agriculture, and forestry. Location analysis and geo-marketing as well as navigation applications or the development of  3D city or terrain models are additional application areas of geoinformatics.

Geominformatics and Geodesy (M. Eng.)

The Master’s study program with the specialisation geoinformatics and geodesy is jointly offered to the courses of study in geoinformatics and surveying, and carried out in collaboration with the University of Rostock. Graduates of Bachelor and Master programmes in cultural and environmental studies, geography, and other related areas may also apply. The Bachelor of Science is a prerequisite for entry to the middle grade of the German Civil Service, and a Master’s degree entitles graduates to seek a higher grade position in the German Civil Service.
