(Aircraft Systems Engineering)

Two-year Master of Science course

The Master Program in Aircraft Systems Engineering builds on the Bachelor program in Mechanical Engineering, which is geared to basic principles. The mathematical, natural science and engineering science knowledge acquired on that course, which may if necessary be verified, is the prerequisite and basis for an in-depth study of the field.

The central focus of the Aircraft Systems Engineering program is on acquiring the skill to think in systems engineering terms, to take an overall view, and to solve aeronautical engineering problems. The course contents comprise a number of in-depth engineering subjects in three fields specific to aviation. The course considers on the one hand aspects of modern air transport systems, aircraft design, and assessment of the technologies required at the overall systems level. On the other, it focuses mainly on the development, analysis and testing of aircraft and cabin systems. Students can choose from a large number of engineering and non-technical compulsory elective subjects in order to design their course individually. The program is rounded off by a project report, seminars, laboratories and the Master’s thesis. To strengthen the international focus, the third subject semester in particular provides good opportunities for arranging stays abroad.

Thanks to the broad systems engineering approach adopted in this program, graduates of the course have been in demand not only in the aviation industry but also in research and other sectors of industry such as automobile manufacturing where there is a need to solve correspondingly complex problems.
