Prof. Theo Kötter

Professor at the institute of geodesy and geo-information (IGG) at the University Bonn

What do you like in particular concerning your job?
The intensive cooperation with students and scientific assistants as well as the great freedom in terms of choosing topics which I like to handle especially in terms of research. It is not common in a lot of other jobs. Additionally it is exciting to experience the discussion of research results at national and international subject-specific conferences.

Which characteristics and abilities are helpful in the property of engineering in your opinion?
reativity as well as interdisciplinary and team oriented working on projects and especially solution-oriented dealing with problems which builds up the typical characteristic of being an engineer.

Where is the future of geodesy set in your opinion?
In my opinion, the future challenge of geodesy is to contribute their strengths for the important central social questions for present and future in combining methods and techniques of geodesy with other scientific- and engineering disciplines: this includes for example questions of food safety, the energy question, the climate change, the urbanization and the maintenance of natural livelihoods. On a local level, it involves for example the challenges caused by the demographical and economic change, the usage of urban space for settlement purposes and the following adjustment of cities, villages and settlement structures.
