Description of Content:

The new Master's program Geodetic Engineering will start in October 2017 and is dedicated to students with a BSc in Geodesy and Geoinformation or related topics, such as Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Geosciences, or Electrical Engineering.

The program offers three profiles, covering the main research fields of our institute:

  • Mobile Sensing and Robotics
  • Geodetic Earth System Science and Data Analysis
  • Geoinformation and Spatial Development

The student will choose one area as a major and a second as a minor topic. Depending on the student's interests, the curriculum allows the student to focus almost entirely on one main topic or a broader range of topics.

Graduates will be equipped with skills and tools to recognize and solve geodetic engineering problems. During their studies, they will participate in current research projects. The Master’s program provides an entry qualification for PhD programs.

Educational Organisation:

The Geodetic Engineering program is extended over 24 months and is structured into mandatory and compulsory elective modules, including teaching units with duration of one semester. Each module is completed with an exam. Three different types of modules are offered: lectures, seminars, and projects. The basis of evaluation is score points (ECTS points).

The curriculum of the MSc program Geodetic Engineering is structured as follows:

  • The first semester offers mandatory advanced modules covering the basic knowledge required for the remaining program. Lectures and exercises cover the following topics: Coordinate Systems, GNSS, Statistics and Adjustment Theory, Geoinformation Systems and Earth Observation. For each student, an individual study will cover topics that were not provided by the student's prior education. Chosen profiles will be introduced by two mandatory modules.
  • In the second and third semester, students intensify their knowledge by one mandatory and three to five compulsory modules from their major profile. From the minor profile or from external offers they may choose up to three compulsory elective modules. Two project modules introduce the students to current research topics and train them for self-sufficient research. These topics are meant for preparation towards the Master's thesis and therefore should only be taken from the major profile.
  • The last study semester is devoted to the Master's thesis.

The Master's program is successfully completed once 120 ECTS points have been obtained. Of these, 15 ECTS points will be obtained from advanced modules, 3 points from the individual study plan, 30 to 42 points from modules out of the major profile, 6 to 18 points from modules out of the minor profile and/or external offers, 24 points from the projects modules, and 30 points from the Master's thesis.

Job Opportunities:

Based on need and availability, student assistant positions are available through the Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformation.
