How is the program structured?

In the Bachelor's program, 180 credit points (ECTS credits) must be acquired. These are distributed among core modules (138 ECTS credits), key qualifications (18 ECTS credits), a technical internship (12 ECTS credits) and the  bachelor thesis (12 ECTS credits).

The subject modules are structured as follows:

  • Basic modules for imparting fundamental methodological knowledge
  • Core modules for imparting engineering competencies with a focus on aeronautics and astronautics
  • Complementary modules for imparting application-oriented competences in the field of aerospace engineering

In addition, so-called key qualifications are taught, which are on the one hand interdisciplinary ("soft skills") and on the other hand related to the subject. The latter also includes the opportunity to carry out team projects, if necessary in cooperation with well-known industrial companies.

All modules and their descriptions are listed in the C@MPUS system.

A six-week pre-study internship must be completed, if possible, prior to entering the study program. Internship guidelines can be found on the website of the Internship Department.

A 12-week technical internship in industry is scheduled in the sixth semester. The objective of the technical internship is to provide students with an insight into the variety of operational processes and professional perspectives in this field.

The exact module explanations can be found in the module handbooks (german only). There, the individual modules are described with the associated courses, the contents and the examination performances.

German language skills are a prerequisite for studying at the university. International students must therefore provide appropriate proof of the german knowledge. However, it is also possible to take a language course at the university.

Your study of aerospace engineering can be supplemented by courses that are summarized in the area of key qualifications (SQ). Key qualifications are necessary, for example, in order to acquire new knowledge and competencies and to be able to act in a situation-appropriate manner when faced with challenges in your studies and career. In addition, they should enable students to "think outside the box".

Software licenses

In the course of the study different softwares will  be required. Most of them require a license. In the following you will find the available licenses.
