Degree Programme Geodesy and Geoinformatics (M.Sc.)

© FBG/C.Bierwagen

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.

Our Department: Geodesy and Geoinformatics

Lectures in summer semester 2020

The summer semester will begin with digital teaching and online-streams for lectures. The presidium will inform about important changes by e-mail.
Details about the courses will be announced in the individual courses via stud.IP.

For general information, please see the information provided by the university's management.


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.
