The Degree Programme

Degree Programme Profile

The Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences offers the 3-semester Master's degree programme Aerospace Engineering.

Students can choose their subjects of study freely from the fields of "General Aerospace Engineering" and "Advanced Aerospace Engineering". The faculty will, however, suggest exemplary study plans which cover "Aeronautical Engineering", "Astronautical Engineering", "Propulsion Engineering" and "Simulation Engineering".

The fundamentals of engineering are consolidated, with the result that graduates will be able to solve subject-specific problems independently, whether it is in the area of product development in the industry or regarding tasks in academic research. In so doing, they also get their qualifications for leading positions.

The course of study takes place as an international cooperation and is therefore mainly taught in English. English-language presentations by students are part of the exercises and work placements.

The degree programme was designed in cooperation with the industrial faculty's advisory board in a practice-oriented manner. For the most part, the teaching staff has years of experience with relevant industrial and major research.

The training is supplemented by interdisciplinary modules, such as foreign languages, formation of a business, project management or patent law for engineers, to name just a few.

The course of study is completed by a project-related Master's thesis and a colloquium.
