Vehicles, as well as aerospace systems, are today essentially determined by electrical and electronic systems. Today, a typical mid-range vehicle contains more than 50 control units ("embedded" computers) that communicate via complex networks. Not only the number of control units is increasing, but above all the quality of computers and their software. Questions of information technology, real-time computers and their special software technology, safety and reliability and finally the interface between driver and computer-controlled vehicle have long since become a central and independent task in vehicle development.
The professional environment of a graduate will be characterized by internationality.
Graduates of the Master's programme Electronic Vehicle Aerospace Systems have the ability to design, build and evaluate complex electronic systems for safety-critical applications, e.g. for vehicle control and aerospace systems. They are able to apply their expertise in the fields of system engineering (hardware design, computer structures, software design, simulation, abstract modelling, control engineering, signal transmission, communication protocols, etc.) to the development of new or further development of existing applications in the fields of aerospace engineering (avionics, navigation, sensors, assistance systems, etc.) and automotive engineering (control units, assistance systems, electromobility, etc.). In interdisciplinary project teams distributed over different locations (possibly internationally) and communicating via modern media, they have the ability to plan and work on subprojects and to successfully present their results.
The Master's programme in Electronic Vehicle, Aerospace and Space Systems is characterised by a strongly research-oriented orientation and a focus on content on the basis of a wide range of opportunities for in-depth study, which are strongly oriented towards the current research fields of the participating institutes. The Master's programme enables both further content and technical specialisation of the basic knowledge acquired in the relevant Bachelor's programmes as well as extensions of existing qualifications through the additional choice of other specialisations.
The programme is aimed at applicants who have obtained a Bachelor's degree or equivalent in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, information systems technology, computer science or a closely related field of study.
The course is divided into the compulsory area "Mathematical and Systems Engineering Fundamentals", in which in-depth basic knowledge is acquired for the scientifically oriented Master's programme, and a compulsory elective area with modules from the electives "Electronics System Engineering", "Space & Avionics Systems Electronics" and "Automotive Systems Engineering".
The basic area is supplemented by a laboratory module with internships from the specializations.
The knowledge and methods taught in the Master's programme Electronic Vehicle Aerospace Systems enable students to independently solve problems in the field of electronic systems in the specific fields of application and enable graduates to occupy leading positions in the vehicle industry or the aerospace industry, at certification bodies and in administration and to carry out independent research work. In particular, the Master's programme enables students to conduct their own research within the framework of a dissertation in electrical engineering/information technology. Graduates of the Master's programme have a high level of problem-solving competence and put this into practice with their specialist knowledge. Furthermore, their interdisciplinary knowledge enables them to take on project management tasks later in their careers or, for example, to pursue a career in management.
You have obtained your Bachelor's degree at a German university. (There are special application procedures and deadlines for international applicants. Detailed information can be obtained from the International Office.)
A special admission procedure must be followed in the Master's programme. The following application deadlines apply for this degree programme:
for the winter semester from 01 June to 15 July
for the summer semester from 01 December to 15 January
The special admission requirements of the Admission Regulations apply.
The industrial internship can optionally be replaced by a master team project. In addition, the professionalisation area requires elective courses which serve to deepen language skills as well as technical and methodological skills in the form of a seminar and a practice-oriented master team project.
