125 Years Geodesy and Geoinformatics in Hannover | Festive Colloquium | May 13, 2006

The school of "Geodesy and Geoinformatics" at Leibniz University Hannover has a long and successful tradition in geodetic research and studies. It all started 125 years ago when Wilhelm Jordan accepted his professorship, but its origins go way back 175 years to the foundation of the university as a Higher Vocational School. The school is well prepared for contemporary challenges. Its institutes are involved in many national and international research projects and maintain excellent contacts with numerous scientific and administrative institutes and institutions, locally and abroad. In the winter semester 2005/2006 the first consecutive bachelor-master programme "Geodesy and Geoinformatics" was introduced.
