Record. Analyze. Consult.
The bachelor degree course Geomatics and Public Works (B.Eng.) combines the recording, administering and analyzing of spatial data and therefore includes a broad spectrum of professional options. Our earth is the foundation of life. As a geodetic engineer you describe it in a digital manner and contribute to shaping our living environment now and for the future in a sustainable way.
The five areas of specializations are surveying, geomatics, land management, facility management and technical infrastructure, which opens up exciting and future-oriented professional fields and many options to incorporate individual preferences and strengths in a target-oriented manner.
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.
The introduction to the five areas of specialization surveying, geomatics, land management, facility management and technical infrastructure is similar to the structure of geodata recording, geodata visualization and geodata analysis and can also be found in the future career.
You record geodata with different methods in different location and height systems. You adequately analyze the recorded data and visualize it with help of GI systems. Based on that, you are able to deviate and analyze geometric and alphanumeric data.
You will be acquainted with assessing and implementing qualitative and quantitative land requirements of the land management. In doing so you consider the main aspects of private and public law, as well as the planning, building and land law. In the course facility management we provide outlines of processes, calculate costs and identify optimization potentials. You plan and survey infrastructural questions of cities, municipalities and local authorities with respect to water, energy and traffic.
By choosing the study project, two obligatory modules and the bachelor's thesis with colloquium, you can further specialize in a certain field as of the fifth semester. You can specialize in one of the five areas of specialization: surveying, geomatics, land management, facility management and technical infrastructure.
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.
