The globalised economy requires air traffic systems that span the globe, transporting both people and goods quickly, safely and economically to their destination. Safety, reliability, performance and efficiency are heavily dependent on whether the system and its processes are appropriately designed, optimised and further developed. It is therefore essential to deal intensively with the functionality, safety and reliability of the technical systems and their various elements as well as the abilities and motivation of the people involved in the processes.
This degree programme aims to provide students with a broad knowledge of aviation engineering, the application and operation of aircraft, airports and flight safety systems as well as their production, maintenance and repair. Upon completion of this degree programme, graduates will be able to evaluation the complex relationships between the various components within the context of the entire air traffic system and the effects they have upon one another.
Graduates of the Bachelor's programme will have a general understanding of the various areas within aviation with a solid overview of how everything works together.
This Bachelor's degree programme serves a foundation for subsequent specialisation without losing sight of aviation complexity.
The Aviation Engineering/ Aviation Management Bachelor's degree programme is divided into four areas:
- Area 1: mathematical and scientific foundations with a focus on mathematics, information technology, thermodynamics, electrodynamics/electronics and material engineering
- Area 2: subject-specific foundations with a focus on production processes, measurement and sensor technology as well as the foundations of aviation technology
- Area 3: more in-depth technical study of the physics of flight, aircraft equipment, aircraft maintenance, flight safety, airport operations and aviation planning
- Area 4: multi-disciplinary studies of business administration, aviation law, quality management and human factors

You can apply to TH Wildau online. All the information you need to apply can be found on our central application page.
We recommend checking in good time as to whether it is useful for you to participate in study preparation courses prior to commencing your studies. Online tests in the subjects of mathematics, physics, information technology and technical mechanics will help you come to a decision. Prior knowledge in these subjects is an important basis for various study modules and therefore necessary for the success of your studies in light of past experience.
