Information for prospective students of Geodata Management (M.Eng.)

The study program Geodata Management (M.Eng.) (GeoDM) combines in the Frankfurt Model the technical and methodological competences from the fields of geoinformatics, engineering surveying and land management as a basis for 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 personal competence as key qualifications, which are taught through content on process, project and leadership management. After the completion of the studies, graduates will be able to hold leading positions in companies and authorities responsibly and significantly contribute to all questions regarding the Geodata Management.

Two additional preparatory sessions will take place outside the institution of higher education for students of this degree course next to the general orientation sessions for first year students, so that a successful and fast entry into your course of study can be facilitated. You will get to know your fellow students in their first year of studies as an interdisciplinary team and introduce your (professional) competencies.

You will get to know the tools of space management at the interfaces of land management, property management and geodata management. You will consider subject-related theories and develop adequate solutions with help of appropriate measuring or IT systems. This way you will be able to analyze, critically reflect on and manage portfolios and change processes of land and real estate.

Course catalogue

Modularization during the studies is a study structure, in which courses such as lectures, exercises, practical internships, 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 handbook entails information about the duration, credits, type of examination, admission requirements, learning results, workload, learning type, content, literature, module coordinator of modules of the degree course. Further information can be found in the guidelines on modularization and awarding of credit points by the Bund-Länder-Commission and can be downloaded in form of a PDF document.
