Geodesy and Geoinformation

Course of studies



Duration of study (semesters)






Description of course of studies

Experts in geodesy and geoinformation capture the human environment by surveying it and depicting it in the form of maps ; in doing so, they portray, arrange and register the world according to fixed characteristics and thus contribute towards its shaping and alteration. To perform these tasks, surveyors develop, use and investigate the most appropriate tools and procedures. Their work can be divided into four main areas, all with typical characteristics and strongly interlinked in many respects:
  1. A wide variety of surveying work, ranging from covering large areas of the globe by means of geodetic surveying, to mapping small areas as well as setting-out and monitoring natural objects or structures by means of engineering surveying.
  2. Cartography based on survey findings and other sources.
  3. Location surveys and all questions connected with land use and land management.
  4. Tasks that arise in the course of spatially-related planning, and in connection with planning implementation in terms of real estate laws.
