Aerospace science and technology drives innovations in multitudes of disciplines and thus must be regarded as a pioneering technology field. The Darmstadt University of Technology focusses its long-standing and broad expertise in this field in order to establish a dedicated modern Aerospace Engineering education in the framework of a master‘s degree program. 


The curriculum in this Aerospace Engineering course at the Darmstadt University of Technology touches upon important and essential basics as well as modern and forward-looking technological aspects of aerospace engineering sciences in order to convey competences for prospective students for the establishment of engineering system solutions.

Preparing the students for the scientific orientated Master’s thesis at the end of their study, a broad range of courses are offered: from traditional basics (e.g. structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, flight mechanics) and applied disciplines to innovative and modern teaching forms such as face to face tutorials in very small groups, for instance in the field of additive manufacturing or cockpit design.


Aerospace is a constantly growing field and thus an extremely important global economic factor. It constantly produces innovations and is a technological pioneer in many respects. Mechanical engineers for aerospace are therefore in demand as specialists worldwide.

They mainly deal with the development, design, planning and construction of technical plants and machines. Accordingly, they work mainly in mechanical and plant engineering or in their supplier companies or in engineering offices.

Depending on the focus of their studies, they deal with automotive engineering, production engineering, energy engineering, fluid mechanics, product development or mechatronics. This list reflects only an excerpt of the diverse possibilities.

Employers of mechanical engineers may include industrial firms, engine manufacturers, surveying and assaying/inspection institutes, engineering firms, consulting firms and the automotive industry. Atypical career choices are also options for mechanical engineers, however, including technical journalism and technical communications.
