The master's degree in Geodetic Engineering is aimed at students with a first degree in geodesy and geoinformation or related subjects such as computer science, mathematics, physics, geosciences or electrical engineering. At the beginning of the course, modules are offered to harmonize previous knowledge. The subsequent course of study offers three profiles for each specialization of an area. These reflect the main research areas of the geodetic institutes: mobile sensors and robotics, geodetic earth system sciences and data analysis, as well as geographic information and spatial development.

The course imparts skills and tools to identify geodetic engineering problems, to formulate research questions and to solve them in projects. During the course, active participation in research projects is made possible, which can also be an entry-level qualification for a doctorate. The program imparts scientifically sound specialist knowledge as well as skills and methods in order to be prepared for work in industry, science and administration.
