How can we ensure that developments in air transport are sustainable and eco-friendly? What happens to space debris and what has been achieved in satellite technology? No question: there are many exciting challenges in the field of aerospace engineering! The cluster of competences—TU Braunschweig, the German Aerospace Center, the Aeronautics Research Centre Niedersachsen, the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt and the German Federal Bureau of Aircraft Accident Investigation—at the Campus Research Airport offers many opportunities to set your focus during your studies in aerospace engineering. Be part of the future of aviation research in Braunschweig.


What is special about TU Braunschweig?

Focus on specialisation in an interesting environment

Braunschweig is an attractive research region and studying here means you are at the cutting edge of science. Our close ties with TU research centres such as the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFF), the Aeronautics Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFL) and the Center of Pharmaceutical Engineering (PVZ) promote practical teaching and give you the opportunity to establish business contacts. You can get additional insights into the latest scientific research thanks to our various cooperation partners such as the German Aerospace Center (DLR) or the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), National Metrology Institute. From collaborating with the high-tech workshop Protohaus to succeeding with the Cluster of Excellence or setting the world record for the largest paper aeroplane—we are part of the action!


Options over obligations

In the Master’s programme, students take a few compulsory courses. These build on the basics of the Bachelor's programme and are the foundation for the further content of the programme. The majority of the Master’s programme, however, consists of courses that students choose according to their own interests. Thanks to a variety of elective courses, each student develops a personal profile and finds their own specialisation.


From engine integration to small satellite operation

How can aircraft engines become quieter and produce fewer emissions? How can flying become even safer and more economical? Design aeroplanes and helicopters, develop spacecraft and satellites, control and plan the operation of aircraft and research new materials while keeping an eye on external circumstances such as the weather, gravity or vacuum: as an engineer working in this key industry you are in demand worldwide.
