Department Architecture, Facility Management and Geoinformation

Course content and objectives

Nearly all tasks in the area of surveying and geoinformatics are interdisciplinary. Graduates have the ability to collect information for complex spatial tasks and to manage, analyze, and communicate this information. To do so, they can develop solutions based on science and manage their implementation. They have broad knowledge of use in the professional fields of surveying and geoinformatics and are prepared for qualified management tasks in a practical manner.

Career prospects include many different areas of business, public administration, and research and they can be employed or work as freelancers: For example in real estate administration and assessment, in assisting in construction projects, in environmental monitoring, and in environmental protection. The need for proper and targeted recording, management, analysis, and communication of current geoinformation is growing steadily. As structures and groups are also growing more complex, the need is increasing for the development of comprehensive measurement programs and analysis methods, for transferring plans to sites, and for monitoring objects for changes. Sustainable planning processes contribute to the conservation of the environment, good administrative actions, and securing the economy.
