Are you seeking a new challenge in aviation – either as pilot or as engineer in construction and maintenance? Then the degree programme in Aviation Systems Engineering and Management at the Hochschule Bremen is just right for you.

You are free to choose your dream programme from four thematic specialisations. Together with experienced and renowned partner companies, we will then train you to become a commercial aircraft pilot, air traffic safety engineer, airport operations engineer or maintenance engineer, depending on what you want.

  • In the specialisation "Production and Maintenance (ILST-HI)", the focus is on imparting the knowledge required for the design, production, maintenance and repair of an aircraft. In addition to the aviation-oriented engineering subjects, this also includes business management modules.
  •     The specialisation "Operations (ILST-B)" is aimed at pilots or future pilots who would like to obtain an academic degree in addition to their pilot's licence.
    Note: You must have already completed your ATPL training before choosing the specialisation at the end of the fourth semester.
    However, it is planned to integrate the ATPL training into the degree programme in the future. Enrolment in the degree programme can therefore initially take place, but the possibility of choosing the specialisation "Operations (ILST-B)" only exists if – as written above – either the successful completion of the ATPL training can be proven, or the corresponding modules can be offered by HSB until the end of the fourth semester. Otherwise, the assignment is made to the ILST-HI specialisation. Further information on this can be obtained from the head of the programme.

Career prospects

Prospects for graduates of the specialisation "Production and Maintenance"

Occupational areas:

  • Development engineer/designer in the aviation industry
  • Engineer in the field of aircraft maintenance and repair
  • Maintenance engineer in the aviation industry
  • Maintenance engineer at commercial airports
  • Maintenance engineer in aeronautical companies
  • Technical-organisational tasks in aviation industry and authorities
  • Systems engineer in industrial companies

Prospects for graduates of the specialisation "Operations"

The specialisation qualifies you for activities that combine interdisciplinary knowledge and engineering skills in the field of aviation.

Occupational areas:

  • Commercial pilot on commercial aircraft or helicopters
  • Commercial pilot and engineer in the aviation industry
  • Commercial pilot and engineer in aeronautical companies
  • Technical-organisational tasks in aviation industry and authorities
  • Systems engineer:in industrial companies

Master's programme

After graduating with a bachelor of engineering degree, you are entitled to take up a master's degree programme, irrespective of the specialisation. At Bremen University of Applied Sciences, the Aeronautical Management M.Eng. programme builds on Aeronautical Systems Engineering and Management B.Eng.

 

Programme structure

In the first four semesters, you will learn the basics in the natural sciences and engineering modules, regardless of the specialisation. Only then do you have to decide on one of the two specialisations:

  • In the specialisation "Production and Maintenance (ILST-HI)", the focus is on teaching the knowledge required for the design, production, maintenance and repair of an aircraft. In addition to the aviation-oriented engineering subjects, this also includes business management modules.
  • The specialisation "Operations (ILST-B)" is aimed at pilots and future pilots.
