The aerospace industry is a steadily growing field and therefore an extremely important global economic factor. It is constantly innovating, making it a technological pioneer in many ways. Logically, the TU Darmstadt bundles its abundant competencies in this area in order to allow them to flow into a targeted and modern training of students in this area. The aspects of internationality and the global relevance of this teaching and research area require an English-language education.
The “Aerospace Engineering” course sees itself as the link between tradition and modernity. This means that both a solid and in-depth training in the traditional and important basics as well as the teaching of new and future-oriented fields of technology in aerospace as building blocks of engineering system solutions are equally in focus and skills are taught.
Through a targeted selection and compilation of courses and tutorials, the above-mentioned content is conveyed by internationally recognized experts. From traditional basics (i.e. the structural-mechanical area as well as topics of fluid dynamics, flight mechanics, and the like) to applied teaching content to innovative tutorials (e.g. in the area of ??additive manufacturing or cockpit design) and student team projects, all relevant Contents kept ready to enable a profound and future-oriented education of students in this field.
The aerospace industry is a steadily growing field and therefore an extremely important global economic factor. It is constantly innovating and is a technological pioneer in many ways. Mechanical engineers for the aerospace industry are therefore in demand as specialists around the world.
You mainly take on the development, design, planning and construction of technical systems and machines. Accordingly, they work primarily in mechanical and plant engineering or in their supplier companies or in engineering offices.
Depending on the focus of their studies, they deal with vehicle technology, production technology, energy technology, fluid mechanics, product development or mechatronics. This list only reflects a selection of the many possibilities.
Employers for graduates in mechanical engineering can be, for example, industrial groups, engine manufacturers, monitoring and testing institutions, engineering offices, consulting companies or the automotive industry.
But other than the classic career paths are also conceivable for mechanical engineers. Examples of this would be technology journalism or technology communication.
It is therefore important, in addition to studying, to gather your own practical experience in relevant institutions at an early stage, to prove your general suitability for practice and to establish contacts. The prospect of a good position is increased by the willingness to move professionally, also abroad. A good command of the English language is particularly recommended if you have an international focus.
