Geomatics Engineering (GEOENGINE) is the key discipline for measuring, modelling and presentation of geospatial data and processes. Recent technological developments such as global satellite navigation, autonomous navigation, driver assistance systems, digital maps, and virtual globes have enhanced public awareness for the fields of geodesy and geoinformatics. GEOENGINE meets the societal demands for a responsible use of available resources and geospatial infrastructures for sustainable development.

To enter the GEOENGINE study program prospecitve students require a qualifying Bachelor's degree in Geomatics Engineering or equivalent. Admission also requires a sound mathematical background, knowledge in geomatics as well as skills in computer programming, for example MATLAB.

Capturing, processing and analysing the world in three dimensions using state-of-the-art technology:

  • for climate research,
  • navigation and autonomous driving,
  • the construction and monitoring of constructions.

Geomatics engineers are professionals for advanced technologies for geospatial data acquisition and management. They are indispensable partners in urban planning, traffic management and sustainable economic development. Therefore, the GEOENGINE Master's program provides profound knowledge focused on positioning, navigation and telematics. As future executives in industry and research, graduates of this Master's program will also be proficient in the following:

  • Mastering state-of-the-art technology
  • Acquisition, administration and processing of geodata
  • Team management
  • Research in all fields of Geomatics Engineering
