Luft -und Raumfahrttechnik

Aerospace Engineering takes your career to new heights!

In a practice-oriented manner, the Bachelor's degree programme Luft- und Raumfahrttechnik (B.Eng.) teaches the fundamentals of engineering as well as everything there is to know about the construction, design and technology of aircrafts, engines and spacecrafts.

With the help of the specialisations Aircraft Construction, Flight Operations Technology, Astronautical Engineering and Engine Technology, you will develop a broad range of competencies. Your degree will qualify you not only as an engineer in the Aerospace Engineering sector, but for numerous other branches of industry as well.

The Dream of Flying

In cooperation with a European flight school, and as an alternative to the "classic" degree programme "Luft- und Raumfahrttechnik", the FH Aachen provides the option of a dual study programme (Duales Studium). After completing this degree programme, you will be awarded the degree of Bachelor of Engineering and an ATPL (Airline Transport Pilot Licence). Compared to the usual serial trainings, the dual education system allows for a reduction of the duration of study (alternatively, the duration of training). In the process, students benefit from the synergy of related study contents provided by both trainings.

Flight Measurement Week and Symposium

Since 2005, the Flight Lab of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering has set out for the Cuxhaven airfield once a year.

Within the framework of a flight mechanics practical training, students test the flight characteristics, flight performance parameter and spin characteristics of gliders and motor airplanes. They also determine generated aircraft noise levels and conduct experiments on flight control. To this end, they have the FH-owned motor aircraft "Morane" at their disposal as well as two gliders and a Stemme S 10 (see image above), a motor glider with a folding propeller inside the nose-cone.
