Geoinformation science engineers with the top-notch, interdisciplinary education our department provides are highly sought after in the professional world. Our graduates go on to succeed in diverse occupational fields, including geoinformation sciences, remote sensing, cartography, surveying, computer science, business and project management. Students graduate from our degree programmes with experience gained through internships and as well as hands-on training in software packages or modern sensor systems.
All of our degree programmes are taught in German.
This interdisciplinary field evolved from the traditional field of surveying, and integrates spatial computer science with modern techniques for 3D measurement and visualisation of geo-objects.
Mathematics, computer science and communication technology come together to allow students to develop novel navigation applications and positioning devices.
Maps today are three-dimensional, interactive and multimedia-based. Students in this programme help take the longstanding tradition of cartography into the future.
Designed for students with a bachelor's degree in computer science, geoinformatics, cartography, or geography, this programme teaches how to use modern technological methods to collect, analyse, and visualise spatial data and processes.
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
