Description of course of studies

The Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering programme is jointly awarded by Technische Universität München (TUM) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The programme is conducted in Singapore and it 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. Particularly, the programme combines both European and Asian insights, producing graduates that are ready for the global economy. The programme 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 NTU and TUM.

  • Spacecraft Technology
Students have to choose 3 subjects from their Major Focus area, 2 subjects from their Secondary Focus area and 2 subjects from any of the Focus areas.
Students with a 4-year BSc degree and with a background in Aerospace Engineering can get exemption for the core courses ‘Aerodynamics’, ‘Flight Dynamics and Control’, ‘Structures and Materials’, ‘Propulsion’ as well as the Lab Modules.
Other students may apply for a waiver for core course modules, if similar achievements can be provided as part of their 4-year BSc programme. The decision is made by NTU and TUM on a case-by-case basis.

Duration of Study
- 4 ( 3 years BEng degree or a Mechanical Engineering degree (without aeronautical specialization))
- 3 ( 3 years BEng degree or Mechanical Engineering degree (with substantial aerospace background ))
