Geoinformatics and Surveying Technology
Essentially, an engineer for geoinformatics and surveying documents and analyses the “what”, “where” and “how” of things on, over and under the earth. This study of geoscientific or general space-related data and facts offers an enormous potential, as more than 80% of all everyday events are related to space and therefore depend on geoinformation. Prominent examples are GPS/Galileo applications as used in vehicle navigation or other matters, when necessary in combination with mobile internet applications (mobile phones, smart phones, PDAs) such as Google Earth or Googlemaps.
Information about to the diploma programme
New admissions to the diploma programmes have not been possible since winter semester 2005/2006.
As from winter semester 2008/2009, no lectures in the diploma programme will be offered. Examinations may be taken until summer semester 2012. The courses for the practical semester will be held together with the bachelor programme. Diploma students are entitled to change to the bachelor programme
Anything new about stirling engines in Cal?
Looking for an update. Everything I find from google news is almost a year old. This is from the stirling engine deal with Southern Edison to build a 500MW plant outside of LA.
What geographical areas are best suited for a solar dish farm?
The southwest region of the United States is ideally suited for this. In fact, a solar farm 100 miles by 100 miles could satisfy 100% of the Americaâs annual electrical needs. Solar technology primarily addresses the peak power demands facing utility companies in the Southwest U.S. and other solar-rich areas.
The cost of living and job markets are better than the national average, but the best job strategy is not to go for averages, but look at your specific skills and experiences, figure out which careers that relates to, and then go to that geographical area:
technology - Silicon Valley
finance - New York
There are other factors to consider. How important are mountains? the ocean? good weather? I have met many midwesterners in Acapulco during the winter, and none ever told me
"I got to get back to Omaha. I just miss those snow covered plains."
4,000 Year Old Greenlander
WASHINGTON (Reuters) â Scientists have sequenced the DNA from four frozen hairs of a Greenlander who died 4,000 years ago in a study they say takes genetic technology into several new realms.
Surprisingly, the long-dead man appears to have originated in Siberia and is unrelated to modern Greenlanders, Morten Rasmussen of the University of Copenhagen and colleagues found.
"This provides evidence for a migration from Siberia into the New World some 5,500 years ago, independent of that giving rise to the modern Native Americans and Inuit," the researchers wrote in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature

The students are using geographic information systems technology and Lidar data, which is 3D aerial imaging of the Earth's surface, gathered by aircraft with laser-based technology, the students note in a 10-minute video that explains the project (below).
