Geodesy and Geoinformation

Master of Science; tuition language: German

Geodäsie und Geoinformation, M.Sc.


The degree programme Master of Science Geodesy and Geoinformation is designed to deepen and broaden engineering knowledge and skills in surveying by specialising in a sub-field of geodesy or geoinformation. The wide variety and combination possibilities of the various modules and optional courses allow students to address their personal interests in the area. A mentoring system supports each student during the process of selecting suitable courses and subjects.

It is also possible for students to spend a semester abroad studying or working towards completion of the Master’s thesis.

Surveying can be roughly divided into three parts: engineering surveying (construction of buildings, roads, bridges and tunnels), land surveying (making maps), and real estate surveyin g (locatting the exact boundaries of a property). Thus, on-site activities is part of the job.

Geodesists are also involved in the development of modern geo-informational systems or satellite navigation systems. Consequently, there is a strong reference to information technology.
