Have the endless expanses of space always fascinated you? And aircraft are not just a means of transport but exciting, highly complex machines? Are you gifted technically and have set your sights high? Then enrol in the Bachelor's degree programme in Aerospace Engineering – and let’s take off together!

The aim of the degree programme in Aerospace Engineering at the Hochschule Bremen is to provide students with a broad range of qualifications that meet the requirements of modern mechanical engineering. The degree programme offers you a future-oriented and versatile education in a specialised field of mechanical engineering.

You will learn about the design, development and construction of aircraft as well as spacecraft. With a view to future careers, you also study aspects of business management.

Career prospects

The comprehensive degree programme qualifies graduates to work as engineers in the areas of design, production, planning, research and development in the following:

  • Large, medium-sized and small industrial companies in the aerospace industry
  • Subcontracting firms
  • Shipbuilding industry
  • Automotive industry
  • Engineering consultancy

Programme structure

In the first phase of studies (1st year), you will learn the scientific and technical fundamentals of mechanical engineering.

In the second phase (2nd and 3rd year), you take the specialisation modules on aerospace engineering along with further modules that consolidate your knowledge of general engineering. In this part of your studies, you will work on student projects and deepen your fundamental knowledge in technical applications. This period also includes your practical semester, which is supervised by university professors and carried out as a work placement in industry.

In the third phase (7th semester), you complete three more specialisation modules and work on your Bachelor's thesis.
