The Department of Theoretical Geodesy covers education in mathematical geodesy, physical geodesy, geodetic astronomy, satellite geode­sy, processing and analysis of measurements, and geoinformatics. Both the theoretical and practical aspects of geodesy are considered.

Scientific activities of the Department con­centrate on geodetic monitoring and analysis of global, regional and local geodynamic pheno­mena, precise positioning by combinations of various geodetic techniques, precise geoid de­termination, metrology and data processing.
Research is supported by an observatory for geodetic astronomy and satellite geodesy, a laboratory for geoinformatics, a laboratory for metrology in geodesy, and a reference geody­namic control station in Modra - Piesok, inclu­ding a permanent GPS station and reference marks for absolute and relative gravity mea­surements.
