To Faculty: Aerospace Engeneering

It's the 21st century, aerospace technology with its interdisciplinary and innovative research fields has had a decisive influence on our lives today and will certainly change our future lives to an even greater extent.

Among other things, aerospace technology explains and develops answers and solutions to important questions of future mobility, such as:

  • Why does an airplane fly, why doesn't a car (yet!)?
  • How do satellites change their orbits and which propulsion systems make this possible?
  • How can satellites be of help to the global climate?
  • How can aircraft, spacecraft or vehicles be made even safer and more reliable?
  • How can an engine be made quieter, more efficient and more eco-friendly?
  • Which innovative materials will be used to build future aircraft or spacecraft, and can these materials also further evolutionary developments within other areas of mobility, such as the automotive industry?

Nowadays, many achievements in aerospace technology have already been incorporated into other engineering disciplines - especially into modern automotive technology.
Some process definitions in the development of modern automobiles and their components, such as fault tree analyses (FTAs), have their origins in aerospace engineering and are indispensable components in quality and safety management.
Nowdays, it would be unthinkable to imagine modern automobiles without materials such as GFRP, CFRP and aluminium. Some core competences, goals and achievements in aerospace technology, as well as in vehicle and drive technology, therefore go hand in hand.
Accordingly, it makes sense that our faculty combines both fields of competence, because learning together also means learning from each other.

In close cooperation with strong partners from industry and commerce, the faculty develops the future of mobility - on the road, in the air, or in the vastness of space.

The degree programmes combine profound basic knowledge and expert knowledge with a strong practical orientation.
Decide for yourself which specialisation will help you steer your future in the right direction, and, in addition, individualise your studies with numerous options.

Take advantage of our international contacts and industrial cooperations, if need be, for a semester abroad at one of our numerous partner universities or for introductory work placements - worldwide.

Get off to a flying start with us - the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering looks forward to welcoming you!
