The degree programme “Aerospace Engineering” is divided into a two-semester introductory and orientation module completed by an orientation exam and a five-semester module of advanced study. Students have to choose a major field of study during the second module (3rd - 7th semester). The practical semester (5th semester) is a further important component of the program.
During the study of Aerospace Engineering, students will choose between three major fields. The study field “Maintenance” includes disciplines like Maintenance, Certification and Repair, whereas disciplines like Turbo Machines, Engine Maintenace and Certification are components of “Propulsion and Engine Installation”. Additionally the study field "Aircraft Design" includes structures, materials and design for fixed- and rotary-wing aircrafts.

There are various career opportunities for aviation engineers starting from development, design and modelling, test and validation techniques, test engineering, aircraft certification, maintenance and repair services, production and assembly up to avionics and propulsion systems. Graduates will enjoy many job and career opportunities in and around Ingolstadt, but also on the national and international markets. This is due to the yearly increasing demand for aviation engineers like in the case of the A350 by Airbus or X4 by Airbus Helicopters.
Besides being one of the most rapidly developing business regions in Europe, Ingolstadt region is not only the home of famous automotive and electronics manufacturers, but also a location for several aviation industry companies like Airbus Group (Manching and Donauwörth), MBDA (Schrobenhausen) and many regional medium-sized companies. The career opportunities range from working as a project manager or a design engineer up to taking full responsibility for airplane programs.
The study programme requires a preparatory internship of at least 12 weeks, which has to be completed before the start of the 4th semester (during semester breaks). The preparatory internship is not part of our admission requirements.
The internship does not necessarily have to be completed at an areospace company, but it is advisable to get the right idea. You may well do more than the required 4 weeks beforehand, which will give you more operational leeway once you've started your studies.
