Information on Degree Program
What does this program cover?
This Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering program is jointly awarded by Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The program is conducted in Singapore at TUM Asia. TUM Asia is TUM’s only offshore campus that is situated in the heart of Asia – Singapore. TUM Asia is a full subsidiary of TUM and is an international extension of TUM, to provide TUM degrees in Asia, in cooperation with top Asian universities like NTU.
This joint degree serves to provide graduates with an in-depth knowledge in the field of Aerospace Engineering, focusing in the areas of aeronautical and space design and research.
The program is jointly taught by academia from NTU and TUM, who have extensive experience in the latest trends in research and education as well as in global industrial product development and management. The non-technical subjects are taught by experts from the industry, from Asia and Europe alike. Lectures will be held across TUM Asia‘s and NTU‘s campuses in Singapore. Students who have passed all examinations will be awarded a joint Master degree from TUM and NTU.
This course equips its graduates to meet the international and interdisciplinary demands of the aerospace industry. The high-level understanding of necessary interactions between many disciplines is a key qualification required by the aerospace sector and many others. Confidence is placed in our graduates to undertake global endeavors encompassing the entire value chain and requiring a large amount of international cooperation. This allows them to master the growing challenges posed by the aerospace industry's cutting edge technology.
How is the program structured?
The program is based on 7 core modules: Aerodynamics, Flight Performance and Dynamics, Structures and Materials, Propulsion, Aircraft Design, the Aerospace Lab and the Design Lab.
These core modules are complemented by a Focus Area, either Aerodynamics and Propulsion, Structures, Materials and Systems or Flight Mechanics and Control.
Your profile is completed by Cross Discipline Modules as well as a Business and Technical English Module.
Which further expertise and skills will I acquire?
Graduates of the Master's degree course "Aerospace" are able to apply, analyse, evaluate and develop knowledge and methods from the aerospace field whilst considering the relevant technical, scientific, economic, environmental and legal aspects. They are also equipped to employ a highly process driven and verifiable approach to work, a critical requirement in the aerospace sector.
The graduates are well versed in competencies relating to complete flying systems (fixed wing aircraft, rotary wing aircraft, helicopters, fuselages, spacecraft and satellites) and, depending on the other course modules selected, also have thorough knowledge of transport systems, flight systems for inside and outside the atmosphere as well as from the disciplines aerodynamics, lightweight design, flight system dynamics, flight propulsion, control technology, aircraft design and space travel technology. Furthermore, graduates have specific knowledge of production methods and materials science (from development to application) in order to meet the unique and extreme demands of the aerospace field (e.g. safety, reliability, quality and structural integrity).
Graduates are able to understand transport systems as complete systems (including their sub-systems) and also to analyse, evaluate and develop them. The knowledge and skills they acquire in understanding highly complex dynamic systems with all their characteristics and operating conditions makes them qualified for other fields in addition to aerospace. This course's graduates are in fact well qualified for other sectors such as vehicle construction or information technology.
Which professional opportunities can I take up with this qualification?
The joint TUM-NTU Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering is a program that caters to highly qualified engineers to meet the ever-increasing demand from a growing aerospace sector in Singapore and the world.
