Geomatics Engineering and Planning

Recording, analysing, and visually representing the space
we live in

Geomatic engineers represent the space we live in using digital models. They use a very wide variety of measuring systems, data sources and methods to record, analyse, and visually represent spatial information. Daily life, but also addressing big challenges such as climate change, urbanisation and nutrition would be unthinkable without them.

Studies in Geomatic Engineering and Planning follow the internationally agreed Bachelor's/Master's system. Students acquire a Bachelor's degree after six semesters, which allows them to continue their studies with a Master's degree at ETH Zurich or at another university abroad. After successful completion of the Master's degree studies, students have the choice between beginning a professional career or undertaking the more in-depth studies of a doctorate at ETH Zurich or at another university.


In the Bachelor's degree studies, students acquire a mathematics, science and engineering-specific grounding as well as subject-specific core skills as a basis for their Master's degree studies. More information


The Master’s degree programme in Geomatics focuses on different areas of specialisation, which allow an individual focus.

In the Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering Department, there are numerous opportunities to undertake a doctorate in an interesting area of research. At the same time students can engage in teaching. This allows the student to go deeper into a specialist area, to prepare for a career in academia or to make valuable contacts with professionals.
