Our earth is the basis of our lives. As a geodetic engineer, you describe it digitally with geodata, and contribute to shaping our living space now and for the future.
The study program Geodata Management (B.Eng.) (GeoDM) combines in the Frankfurt Model the technical and methodological competencies from the fields of geoinformatics, engineering surveying and land management as the basis of interdisciplinary sustainable action.
At its core is the process of collecting, storing and evaluating spatial data from the real world. The digital provision of data via geodata infrastructures and their visualization find a variety of applications in all socially relevant topics.
The Frankfurt Model includes the development of social and self-competence as key qualifications, which are taught through content on law, process, project and leadership management.
Foundations in mathematics, technical and legal aspects are laid during the first two semesters. Modules in the areas of management prepare the students for the study project and other obligatory modules, as well as for their future career as of the third semester.
Modularization during the studies is a study structure, in which courses such as lectures, exercises, practical internships, excursions, excursions or seminars about certain topics are combined in modules. The structure of a module is determined by the competence, which is to be achieved upon completion of the module.
The module manual entails information on the duration, credits, type of examination, requirements, study results, workload, type of learning, content, literature, and the representative of the module of a degree course. Further information can be found in the guideline on modularization and credit point awarding of the federal commission. The module overview and the study content can be downloaded in form of a PDF.
The use of geographic information systems (GI systems) is one of the most dynamic growth sectors. Maps are prepared mainly digitally and interactively for the internet. In the sector of public works, graduate experts, who manage administration, management and maintenance of municipal real estate and infrastructures and recognize and consider spatial contexts, are highly sought after on the job market.
You will get to know numerous potential professional paths due to the broad spectrum of the course of studies. With a degree in this field, you will be able to work independently in your area of expertise, as well as efficiently as a generalist at the interface to other professions.
Future employers are surveying administrations and authorities for geomatics on a state and federal level, municipalities, technical city halls, infrastructure companies, surveying and planning offices, IT and communication service providers, energy, waste management and disposal companies, as well as service providers in facility management.
With the academic degree 'Bachelor of Engineering' you also have the option of extending your education by a Master's degree.
