Program structure

The master program „Aircraft Systems Engineering“ is designed modular and oriented at the university wide program structure with an unified module size (multiples of six ECTS). It consists of a 60 ECTS curriculum of key qualifications that has to be taken by all students. It includes, among other, a so called system development project. Furthermore students have to choose one of the three offered curricula of specialization (30 ECTS), containing one obligatory module and a catalog of elective modules. The master program is completed by a master thesis.

All obligatory modules of the curriculum of key qualification and curricula of specializations are offered in the first two semesters of studies. The third semester only contains elective modules, which ease students to plan a semester abroad.

Core qualification

The students extend their knowledge and skills in advanced engineering, aviation related subjects. Besides technical knowledge students strengthen their methodical skills in the fields of Aircraft Systems Engineering, Cabin Systems, Aircraft Design, Flight Physics and Systems Engineering. By performing the Systems Engineering Development Project, students apply their acquired skills in teams on a practical engineering problem.

Recommended Previous Knowledge None
Educational Objectives After taking part successfully, students have reached the following learning results
Professional Competence
Knowledge

The Nontechnical Academic Programms (NTA)

imparts skills that, in view of the TUHH’s training profile, professional engineering studies require but are not able to cover fully. Self-reliance, self-management, collaboration and professional and personnel management competences. The department implements these training objectives in its teaching architecture, in its teaching and learning arrangements, in teaching areas and by means of teaching offerings in which students can qualify by opting for specific competences and a competence level at the Bachelor’s or Master’s level. The teaching offerings are pooled in two different catalogues for nontechnical complementary courses.

The Learning Architecture

consists of a cross-disciplinarily study offering. The centrally designed teaching offering ensures that courses in the nontechnical academic programms follow the specific profiling of TUHH degree courses.

The learning architecture demands and trains independent educational planning as regards the individual development of competences. It also provides orientation knowledge in the form of “profiles”.

The subjects that can be studied in parallel throughout the student’s entire study program - if need be, it can be studied in one to two semesters. In view of the adaptation problems that individuals commonly face in their first semesters after making the transition from school to university and in order to encourage individually planned semesters abroad, there is no obligation to study these subjects in one or two specific semesters during the course of studies.

Teaching and Learning Arrangements

provide for students, separated into B.Sc. and M.Sc., to learn with and from each other across semesters. The challenge of dealing with interdisciplinarity and a variety of stages of learning in courses are part of the learning architecture and are deliberately encouraged in specific courses.

Fields of Teaching

are based on research findings from the academic disciplines cultural studies, social studies, arts, historical studies, communication studies, migration studies and sustainability research, and from engineering didactics. In addition, from the winter semester 2014/15 students on all Bachelor’s courses will have the opportunity to learn about business management and start-ups in a goal-oriented way.

The fields of teaching are augmented by soft skills offers and a foreign language offer. Here, the focus is on encouraging goal-oriented communication skills, e.g. the skills required by outgoing engineers in international and intercultural situations.

The Competence Level

of the courses offered in this area is different as regards the basic training objective in the Bachelor’s and Master’s fields. These differences are reflected in the practical examples used, in content topics that refer to different professional application contexts, and in the higher scientific and theoretical level of abstraction in the B.Sc.

This is also reflected in the different quality of soft skills, which relate to the different team positions and different group leadership functions of Bachelor’s and Master’s graduates in their future working life.

Specialized Competence (Knowledge)

Students can

  • explain specialized areas in context of the relevant non-technical disciplines,
  • outline basic theories, categories, terminology, models, concepts or artistic techniques in the disciplines represented in the learning area,
  • different specialist disciplines relate to their own discipline and differentiate it as well as make connections, 
  • sketch the basic outlines of how scientific disciplines, paradigms, models, instruments, methods and forms of representation in the specialized sciences are subject to individual and socio-cultural interpretation and historicity,
  • Can communicate in a foreign language in a manner appropriate to the subject.
Skills

Professional Competence (Skills)

In selected sub-areas students can

  • apply basic and specific methods of the said scientific disciplines,
  • aquestion a specific technical phenomena, models, theories from the viewpoint of another, aforementioned specialist discipline,
  • to handle simple and advanced questions in aforementioned scientific disciplines in a sucsessful manner,
  • justify their decisions on forms of organization and application in practical questions in contexts that go beyond the technical relationship to the subject.



Personal Competence
Social Competence

Personal Competences (Social Skills)

Students will be able

  • to learn to collaborate in different manner,
  • to present and analyze problems in the abovementioned fields in a partner or group situation in a manner appropriate to the addressees,
  • to express themselves competently, in a culturally appropriate and gender-sensitive manner in the language of the country (as far as this study-focus would be chosen), 
  • to explain nontechnical items to auditorium with technical background knowledge.





Autonomy

Personal Competences (Self-reliance)

Students are able in selected areas

  • to reflect on their own profession and professionalism in the context of real-life fields of application
  • to organize themselves and their own learning processes      
  • to reflect and decide questions in front of a broad education background
  • to communicate a nontechnical item in a competent way in writen form or verbaly

Specialization Cabin Systems


In the specialization in cabin systems, students learn to systematically deal with issues related to the development of aircraft cabin systems, the use of these systems and their application in an operational environment. The aircraft cabin with the cabin management system represents the central working system of an airline during passenger transport. The focus of the specialization is the design of electronic cabin and communication systems using the methodology of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). Environmental control systems, acoustics, design methods related to composite materials and for integrated product development are further important aspects in the specialization for aircraft cabin development. Airport operations and operations of an airline with respective procedures and systems round off the context of the aircraft cabin. Students have broad knowledge on development methods for complex systems. The can draft requirements, functions and architectures for hardware- and software-based systems, and model and simulate solutions. They know about appropriate tools and methods and master the overall system development process from system design via system implementation and system integration, right up to validation and verification.
