Information about the Content

  • Do you have the professional goal of geodesy in governmental surveying in mind? The combined bachelor's degree programme GVK shortens the way there, as you can complete your preparatory service for entry in the 3rd tier of civil service parallel to your studies.

    The lecture-free time creates the space for your vocational training with public authorities, where you also do the pre-study internship and your practical project. The topic of your bachelor's thesis will also ensure that theory and practice are closely linked. If you want to reach your goal quickly, have clear career expectations and want to be financially secure during your studies, the combined degree program is the right choice. 

    In the official surveying system, you define property boundaries to secure ownership of property, which are documented in the official property cadastre. The basic geodata also serve as a planning basis for larger construction projects or the reorganisation of ownership and utilisation conditions, for example in order to make winegrowing more economical. 
    Training begins on September 1 with an introductory week at the office and the General Administration Seminar. The 1st semester starts in October. The degree program is modular in structure. Each module consists of five semester lessons per week with theoretical and practical components, and is awarded six ECTS credits upon successful completion of the course (coursework and exams).

    Between semesters, practical training is provided by your local authority. There you will be taught general and subject-specific administrative knowledge. In addition, the topics of property cadastre, land use planning, property valuation, official basic geodata, spatial data infrastructure, spatial reference and geotopography will be of importance.

    The 6th semester includes the 16-week practical project and the ten-week bachelor's thesis. Both take place in cooperation between Mainz University of Applied Sciences and the recruitment authority and are credited towards both studies and career training.

    After acquiring the bachelor's degree (B.Sc.) you will take the final exmination for 3rd-tier civil service.
