Work in progress presentations of PhD students in Engineering Geodesy

The International Course on Engineering Geodesy 2017 offers a dedicated session for PhD students on Wednesday April 26th. PhD students present their current work in progress and discuss their findings with other PhD students, university professors and practitioners. The presentations are held in English and the discussions are in English or German. Each presentation lasts 30 minutes and is followed by a 15-minutes question and answer session.

This session is supported by the Department Engineering Geodesy of the German Geodetic Commission (Abteilung Ingenieurgeodäsie der DGK) and takes place at the Geodesy Building of TU Graz (Steyrergasse 30, 8010 Graz).
