The course has two components

(i) Seminar-type, interactive presentation of 11 units covering basic cases of applications of Geodesy in various fields of Civil Engineering.  These units cover the fields of Geotechnical and Structural Engineering (as study and construction), but also Transportation Engineering etc. and Applications in fields such as Archaeology.

(ii) A supervised research project covering a full semester in any of the fields of the course is assigned to a group of two students.  The project is based on experiments and on their analysis, analysis of bibliographic data, analysis of existing experimental data, applications of existing software or algorithm development.  The results of the project are presented in a quasi-formal workshop.  Students learn also from the gradual progress, presentation and evaluation of all projects.

(iii) Reference to news breaking events (earthquakes etc.)
