Aerospace B. Sc.
Start your very own "Mission Earth" with the Bachelor Aerospace. The six-semester Bachelor's program, taught entirely in English, is the ideal introduction to the global future topic of aerospace.
We offer an innovative, comprehensive and subject-specific basic education for the aerospace engineers of tomorrow. All important disciplines are covered in an interdisciplinary manner and neighboring and application-oriented fields are also included, so that students develop a view of the overall system right from the start and learn to solve technically complex problems in all areas of aerospace.
What you'll learn for your future?
The aerospace industry has a strong presence in Munich, and it serves an international market that continues to grow in many future fields (new space, satellite Internet, air cabs, eAviation, etc.). As specialized engineers, you have many opportunities to find a great career start in this broad spectrum. And of course, with your knowledge e.g. in lightweight construction and materials, aerodynamics or thermodynamics, you will also be welcome in other sectors such as the energy industry or the automotive industry.
The program provides solid knowledge in aerospace-specific core disciplines (mathematics and systems theory, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, materials and machine elements, electrical and information engineering) and builds on this with practical, structured and open teaching formats and a range of specialization offerings.
Close partnerships with companies located in Bavaria's "Space Valley" enable early practical orientation for all students. Our graduates are very well prepared for the international job market in research or the aerospace industry due to their broad and at the same time subject-specific engineering education in theory and practice. They are our contribution to maintaining and expanding the competitiveness of German industry in the field of aerospace and geodesy. The Bachelor Aerospace is also the ideal preparation for the Master Aerospace.
Start your personal mission!
"Now is the right time to study aeronautics and astronautics," TUM professors Sophie Armanini, Florian Holzapfel and Ulrich Walter are convinced. In the video, you will gain insights into current developments in the field of aerospace and learn what our researchers are passionate about.
From rockets to drones, from helicopters to satellites and from airplanes to hyperloop technology – with our study programs you can become part of the next mobility revolution. Start your personal mission with a degree program at the TUM School of Engineering and Design.
Type of Study: Full Time
Standard Duration of Studies: 6 Semester
Credits: 180 ECTS
Main Locations: Garching
Admission Category: Aptitude Assessment for Bachelor
Start of Degree Program: Winter Semester (October)
Required Language Proficiency: English and German
The program consists of 19 compulsory modules distributed over the first four semesters.
In the fourth semester, in addition to the compulsory modules, the "System Elective" can be selected from a catalog of elective modules. In the fifth and sixth semesters, the focus is then entirely on the practical application of the theories and competencies from the first four semesters, as well as on focusing and specializing based on individual interests. In the fifth semester, students are expected to expand their knowledge practically in the "Engineering Internship", and in group work through the "Engineering Project". The university internship of the "Aerospace Lab Course I" and the elective module catalog of the "Modeling Elective", further optional "Engineering Electives" as well as a smaller "Supplementary Course" allow students to refine their personal competence profile.
In the sixth semester, in addition to further elective modules and even greater freedom of choice, the focus is on the bachelor thesis, with which students demonstrate that they have learned to work on a question independently and scientifically.
The TUM School of Engineering and Design offers many opportunities for a study-related stay abroad. Good reasons for studying abroad are the broadening of one's horizons, the personality-building effect, the improvement of knowledge of the respective language, and getting to know other (subject) cultures and ways of life.
The degree program requires proof of an 8-week-long pre-study internship.
You can find information about the design and contents of the internship in the internship-guideline.
Please provide proof of your 8-week pre-study internship at the beginning of your studies (October 31 at the latest). An application without proof of internship is possible. You will then receive a mandatory requirement to provide evidence of the internship within the first year of study.
Please discuss the recognition of vocational training, HTL or other degrees as well as deferment requests with the Internship Office before enrollment.
Proof is provided by submitting the documents listed below to the internship office of the Department of Aerospace and Geodesy (by e-mail to email@example.com):
Please apply through the TUMonline application portal and upload your application documents.
The selection is made by means of an aptitude assessment procedure. This is a two-stage process in which suitability for the special qualitative requirements of the bachelor's degree program is assessed. In the first stage, the Abitur grades as well as subject-specific individual grades and, if applicable, relevant additional qualifications are evaluated by means of a point system. Depending on the score achieved, applicants are either admitted immediately, rejected, or invited to a selection interview.
