The study of surveying and geoinformatics is designed as a full-time course. Therefore, it is normally not advisable to work more than about one day per week during the lecture period. However, from the 3rd semester onwards, the timetables will always keep one day of the week free if possible. On such days you can work as long as you can cope with the learning material and the tasks. Since examinations at the HFT Stuttgart are always blocked at the end of a semester, the semester break is very suitable for working.
On the basis of these available times, offers of support are based for which one can apply to the services mentioned below. There you have to ask for a "Studienbegleitenden Bildungsvertrag" or the "Studium mit Vertieften Praxisphasen". A model contract can be obtained from the State Office for Geoinformation and Rural Development.
Opportunities for work during the course of studies exist in surveying or engineering offices, in planning and consulting offices, in the public service at federal, state and local level, in construction companies, in industry (e.g. mechanical engineering, plant construction), in equipment development, in software companies or in research institutions.
