In the Bachelor's degree program, the scientific foundations and the methodology competence in the area of geodesy and geo-informatics are provided. The goal is to acquire the ability to successfully graduate in a Master's degree program, as well as to apply the acquired knowledge in professional areas.

The graduates of the Bachelor's degree program geodesy and geo-informatics have knowledge in the basics of processing and analysis of temporal and spatial data, as well as technical, methodical, and legal knowledge in geodesy and geo-informatics. Further, they have insight in most professional areas for geodesists. Based on their wide knowledge, they can name and describe advanced questions in geodesy and geo-informatics. They have well-founded knowledge about and methods for knowledge acquisition, in order to become acquainted with advanced questions.

They are able to independently analyze basic survey problems and implement practical solutions. They can implement algorithms of geo-informatics as well as apply essential methods for analyzing temporal and spatial data, as well as develop solutions for specific problems in their area of expertise. The graduates have the ability to collect simple relevant information, to analyze and evaluate it, and are able to become acquainted independently with simple topics and problems, as well as overview, analyze, interpret and evaluate them. They are able to work on a given concrete problem in a self-organized and solution oriented way. They can classify area-specific problems and choose suitable methods for acquiring measurement data, and for analyzing and evaluating them.

They know how to document, bring together, illustrate and interpret the obtained results. They are able, after an introduction, to work independently or in a team, to argue in area-related terms, and are able to discuss their arguments with and defend them in front of experts and lay people. The practical handling of specific knowledge occurs under consideration of societal, scientific and ethic aspects.

Excerpt from the diploma supplement of the study program

Mit einem Abschluss in Geodäsie und Geoinformatik hast du beste Chancen auf einen abwechslungsreichen und vielfältigen Arbeitsplatz. Der Mangel an Fachkräften ist in diesem Bereich aktuell groß. Typische Arbeitsbereiche sind

  • Öffentliche Verwaltung
  • Ingenieur- und Planungsbüros
  • Selbstständige Tätigkeit als öffentlich bestellter Vermessungsingenieur oder Vermessungsingenieurin
  • EDV-Dienstleistung
  • Herstellung geodätischer Instrumente
  • Automobilindustrie
  • Automationstechnik
  • Forschung und Lehre

Im Öffentlichen Dienst beschäftigen vor allem Behörden folgender Zuständigkeitsbereiche Spezialisten aus der Geodäsie und Geoinformatik:

  • Landesvermessung
  • Kommunale Vermessungs- und Versorgungsunternehmen
  • Katasterwesen und Flurneuordnung
  • Bundesamt für Kartographie und Geodäsie
  • Straßenbau
  • Wasser- und Schifffahrtsverwaltung

Um eine Anstellung im höheren vermessungstechnischen Verwaltungsdienst zu erreichen, musst du nach dem Masterabschluss einen 18-monatiger Vorbereitungsdienst (=Referendariat) absolvieren.

Tätigkeiten im Bereich der Ingenieurvermessung sind unter anderem:

  • Planung und Leitung von Vermessungen im Gelände
  • Durchführung von vermessungstechnischen Aufgaben bei der Planung, Absteckung, Überwachung und Rekonstruktion von Bauwerken (Verkehrswege, Brücken, Talsperren, Kraftwerke, Industrieanlagen, Wohn- und Gesellschaftsbauten)
  • Mitarbeit bei Umweltverträglichkeitsprüfungen
  • Vermessung von Grundstücken zur Sicherung des Grundeigentums

Auch der weiterhin stark expandierende IT-Bereich bietet dir Jobmöglichkeiten wie in der Softwareentwicklung und im GIS-Bereich. Im Vordergrund steht hier die Erfassung und Verwaltung raumbezogener Geodaten sowie die Erstellung und Nutzung von Geoinformationssystemen in den Bereichen Verwaltungs-, Verkehrs- und Versorgungsmanagement, bei Umwelt- und Sicherheitsaufgaben, bei Energieversorgern und Banken sowie für Freizeit und Tourismus.

German applicants and those with German-equivalent applicant status

Germans, EU nationals, and non-EU nationals with a German university entrance qualification are eligible to study at KIT if they have one of the following qualifications:

  1. General university entrance qualification (Abitur)
  2. (relevant) Fachgebundene Hochschulreife (subject-linked university entrance qualification, not Fachhochschulreife / university of applied sciences entrace qualification)
  3. Delta examination of the University of Mannheim (for holders of a Fachhochschulreife)
  4. a recognized diploma of advanced vocational training (e.g. technician, Meister diploma for craftsman) or an aptitude test for vocationally qualified persons

For additional possibilities, see §58 of the Landeshochschulgesetz (State Higher Education Act).

Furthermore, prerequisite for enrollment is the participation in a study orientation test (e.g. at www.was-studiere-ich.de) or a study orientation counseling, e.g. by the Zentrale Studienberatung (student advisory services) at KIT, according to §60 Landeshochschulgesetz (State Higher Education Act).

German citizens with foreign school-leaving qualifications must have the equivalence of their qualification with the German Abitur certified by the responsible Regierungspraesidium (regional authority).

Foreign nationals (non-EU)

In Germany, the school leaving certificate of institutions in certain countries is accepted as direct means to enter university. In order to start your bachelor's studies in Germany, a university entrange test and / or one completed year of education at an institute of higher education and / or the "Feststellungsprüfung" (test of aptitude of foreign applicants for studies at universities in Germany) needs to be demonstrated in addition in most cases. You can find country-specific regulations in the "Zulassungsdatenbank des DAAD" (database on adimission requirements of the German Academy Exchange Service) or in the Anabin database (database of the "Zentralstelle für ausländisches Bildungswesen", only available in German). If you have further questions, please contact the International Students Office.

Knowledge of the German language for foreign nationals

In order to be accepted into a study program taught in German, foreign nationals need to demonstrate knowledge of the German language. For your application, you need to demonstrate knowledge of level B1. All such certificates are accepted, even a certificate of attendance of a B1 course. During the enrollment process, you need to submit a DSH2 certificate or an accepted equivalent thereof. If you have further questions, please contact the International Students Office.
