Geodesy and Geoinformation

Geodesy is concerned with the measurement of the earth in global, regional, and local scales. Geoinformation in turn establishes links between the captured data and their geographic location, processing the data with computer-aided techniques and presenting them with digital geoinformation systems. Geodesy and geoinformation is an engineering science that works across disciplines and employs modern measurement technologies, analytical processes and communications media. The aim of many geodesy and geoinformation applications is to represent and form our living space e.g. by evaluating our planet’s (scarce) resources, or developing and planning our environment and infrastructure.

The basic modules of the program furnish students with knowledge of engineering mathematics, experimental physics, curve fitting as well as geodesy and geoinformation. Later on, students learn mathematical evaluations of satellite missions that aim to characterize the earth’s gravity field, photogrammetric measuring and evaluation methods as well as design aspects of urban development.

In addition to theoretical courses, practical training in the form of tutorials and practical surveying courses are an important part of this degree program.

Possible lines of work:

Managerial positions in public surveying administrations (land registries, regional land survey offices), publicly appointed survey engineer, commercial engineering firms, companies (geoinformation, transportation, cartography, photogrammetry, power supply, etc.), banking/real estate, construction industry, technical expert firms/planning offices, real estate departments of large companies, municipalities/ specialized administrations, aerospace, software development, academia (teaching/research at universities, research institutions, etc.)

University entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur)

German language proficiency (DSH level 2, CEFR level C1, as per DSH exam. regulations)

English language proficiency (CEFR level B1)

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
