Visit from L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University Kazakhstan in the Geomatics department <<

On September 26th and 27th, 15 students of the Bachelor Program "Space Engineering and Technologies" of L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University, Kazakhstan visited the Geomatics department of faculty C.

Vice dean Prof. Dr. Schroeder introduced them to the University of Applied Sciences Stuttgart and the Master's programs offered within the faculty. A presentation of the equipment park of the Geomatics department, from the Trimble SX10 Scanning Total Station to the Leica BLK360 laser scanner to multiple UAVs, was accompanied by B.Eng. Steven Seiter.

Joe Thunyathep S., a graduate of the Master's program Photogrammetry and Geoinformatics, presented the student project Smart Pollen Monitoring. Also the research, which is carried out at the university and especially in the faculty C, was presented by M.Sc. Avishek Dutta and M4Lab-managing director Janto Skowronek.

The seminar on "Development and research of methods of geometric correction and photogrammetric processing of space unstabilized hyperspectral materials" was held by the students of the EMU. Students from the Master´s program “Photogrammetry and Geoinformatics" joined the seminar as well. In the lecture "GIS applications for environment and hydrology" by Prof. Dr. Schröder the students were able to extend their professional knowledge in the field of geoinformatics.

The visit was funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) as part of a 12-day study trip with visits to several subject-related study programmes. The aim is to provide specialized knowledge, promote professional contact with German students and researchers, and enable foreign students to gain a better understanding of economic, political and cultural life in Germany.

We thank the students, especially Mr. Manap Shymyr and Mrs. Almira Zhakupova, for the friendly and informative exchange and wish further valuable experiences during their last visit to the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Cologne.
