Aerospace Engineering at the TU Braunschweig

The master degree course Aerospace Engineering is based on the bachelor degree course Mechanical Engineering (or Industrial Engineering / Mechanical Engineering).

The following film, which was made in cooperation with the Federal Employment Agency, shows how important mathematics is for the course of studies as well as its focuses and the career opportunities.


The students can begin to specialise in aerospace engineering during their bachelor studies. In the bachelor degree course, they are provided with the basics of aerospace engineering; in the master degree course, they can choose their individual focus according to their personal interests. Possible topics include:
  • Aerodynamics
  • Flight guidance
  • Flight mechanics
  • Aircraft engines
  • Aircraft construction and lightweight design
  • Space technology
  • Materials

As depicted in the master curriculum, the course comprises not only compulsory and specialisation modules, but also lab work, optional and interdisciplinary subjects, in order to provide the students with a broad range of knowledge for their career as an engineer.
An overview and description of the modules is available here.
