The Geodesy and Geoinformation Science programme from TU Berlin is a diversified engineering discipline strongly relying on mathematics and natural sciences. It covers essential tasks such as acquisition, modelling and processing of spatial data. 


The analysis, organisation and visualisation of geodata form a fundamental base for the interpretation and design of our environment.

Geodesy provides a framework for Geographic Information Systems (GIS). By applying methods and techniques of terrestrial surveying, satellite positioning and adjustment calculation a sound fundament for navigation and routing techniques or location-based services is established. Geoinformation technology deals with consistent management and efficient sharing of data stored in spatial databases. Neighbouring fields like photogrammetry and remote sensing deliver further additional input for sophisticated analyses. Combined with statistical data these disciplines provide powerful tools for detailed 3D/4D models of our real world.

Graduates of the Geodesy and Geoinformation Science programme from TU Berlin have a variety of potential fields of research ranging from microscopic applications in medical sciences to contributions to vehicle navigation, environmental monitoring and even to planning of space missions for the exploration and mapping of extra-terrestrial planets.

The biennial studies at Technische Universität Berlin are guided by this scientific focus. Conveyance of theoretical knowledge gives students the opportunity to develop and utilize methods of surveying engineering and satellite geodesy, planetary and Earth system research, computer vision as well as modelling of the environment using Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
