Degree Programme Geodesy and Geoinformatics (M.Sc.)

© FBG/C. Bierwagen/I. Villegas

Mobility and navigation, climate change and environmental challenges, spatial planning and high precision measuring - these fascinating topics are at the core of Geodesy and Geoinformatics - an interdisciplinary cutting-edge science and technology subject. It covers a wide range of interesting topics related to surveying and mapping the Earth's surface at all scales. Students specialise in one of the two possible specialisations "Geomatics" (primary language of instruction: English) or "Navigation und Umweltrobotik" (primary language of instruction: German). 


Our Department: Geodesy and Geoinformatics


New Handbook

The new handbook for the specialisations "Geomatics" and "Navigation und Umweltrobotik" are now available on this page .

Mentors for international students

The mentors for international students is a group of senior students providing help for all new master students. Thereby, the main goal is to help the new international master students.

For more information, please have a look at mentor program for international students.


Semester Planning

This programme is built up of modules and each module contains different lectures. There are three types of modules: Compulsory and mandatory elective modules and the elective module Studium Generale.

Students can choose to specialise either in Geodesy or in Geoinformatics, which implies a set of specific modules in the two domains. At least 10 CPs must be obtained in both the domains.

The handbook contains all relevant information to organise your degree programme, including detailed module descriptions. The curriculum varies depending on your start of studies in winter or summer semester.

Note: Students, who were admitted on condition of passing the three requirement courses, have an increased workload to manage. This would most probably lead to an extension of programme duration.


You have to register online for exams during the registration period. This does not apply for requirement courses and your Master thesis.

Students decide independently which and how many examinations they would register for each semester. We recommend to take the exams on the dates suggested in the handbook.


The examination regulations (PO) state the structure and content of the degree programme and are legally binding. The PO defines requirements for examinations and their procedure. It specifies the modules in which examination and study achievements are to be completed, as well as the number and type of examinations.
