Bachelor program Surveying

Earth and ground build a basis for almost every economic and social activity
- weather if one builds a building, uses the ground for commercial development or as recreation areas. Surveying and Real Estate Management make it possible to find out the land development and zoning as well as land valuation.

Surveying engineers find out geo-data with the help of modern technics - it takes for example electrical tachometer, exact satellite reception (GPS), photogrammetric processes, laser scan and laser tracker. The measuring data are evaluated safe with software and with the help of geo-information system and web-work those dates are documented and visualized.
