General Information:

This degree programme provides comprehensive training in natural and engineering sciences, including surveying and geodesy, computer science, geographic information systems, as well as urban and regional planning.

Graduates will be able to deal with coordinate and reference systems, data models, data bases and geoinformation systems and acquire the know-how of modelling geospatial data and processes – in short, they will be specialists in the digital representation of the real world.

The aim of the programme is to prepare budding engineers for an employment in the areas of geodesy, surveying, geoinformatics, geomedia and information technology as well as in regional and urban management
