Welcome to the event website of GEO Day, the open day of the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation. Here you will find all information on future events and can view impressions of previous events.

You can find an introduction to the event here: GEO-Day? What is that?


Upcoming events in 2024

The Department's Open Day will take place this year on April 11 in the Freihaus building of TU Wien. Anyone interested in studying Geodesy and Geoinformation, students, graduates, former employees of the department, as well as family and friends but also all other enthusiasts of the world of remote sensing, geoinformation, surveying, geophysics or cartography are cordially invited.

Once again this year, many companies from the industry will be on site and are looking forward to interesting questions and discussions with visitors at the company fair from 13:00 to 16:00. At the GEO-Department stand, prospective students can obtain information about studying geodesy and geoinformation and try out experiments themselves.

Students who are looking for a topic for their Bachelor's/Master's thesis or job/internship will find a large selection of job advertisements in the job corner.

Afterwards, there will be the opportunity to end the evening in a relaxed atmosphere at the get-together. Drinks and snacks will again be served by the Geodesy and Geoinformation Student Council.

The following companies coming to GEO-Day:

On April 11, 2024, the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation invites you to an open day at TU Wien. Two time slots are offered, the event can be attended by school classes in the morning at 9.00 am (5th-8th grade) or in the morning at 11.00 am (9th-13th grade). The time slots will take about 2 hours each.

The aim of GEO Day is to explain the application areas of surveying, earth observation, laser scanning, robotics and much more using practical stations, experiments and short presentations. The experiments and hands-on activities at the stations are designed to make science "understandable".

This year, visitors to the open day can watch a short lecture and eight stations from the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation. Classes from grades 9-13 are cordially invited to visit the company fair in the afternoon after the stations, to get to know innovative approaches of companies and to get a taste of the professional world of geodesy and geoinformation.
