Space is of outstanding importance for the public image and perception of the Hanseatic city Bremen – the city of aviation and space flight. The University of Bremen with its Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity (ZARM) and the DLR Institute for Space Systems have become a worldwide renowned condensation point for space technology: for systems and subsystems (e.g., payloads and instruments) needed for earth observation science, telecommunication, and navigation. The novel Master’s program in space engineering plays an important role in the further development of the Campus Bremen.
Following the present expertise in the area of space engineering and technology, the executive committee of the Department of Production Engineering (FB4) has established the Master’s program in Space Engineering.
The Master’s program in Space Engineering is superior to generic aerospace studies offered by other universities. While the Department of Production Engineering will host the interdisciplinary Master’s studies, other faculties, such as the Departments of Physics, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science, support and complement the program. As a result, graduates from a variety of different areas will be able to choose to be trained to become experts in space engineering and related aeronautical fields.
This Master’s degree program has a duration of four semesters. The lectures will be in English and the Master’s thesis should be written in English. The total 120 credit points are divided into the starting semester (30 CP), compulsory modules (36 CP), compulsory elective modules (24 CP), and the Master’s thesis (30 CP). The entry semester can be remitted for suitable Bachelor’s graduates with 210 CP.
The Master’s program aims at preparing students for an assignment in the aerospace industry. With the focus on state-of-the-art technology, the Master’s program offers everything necessary for a successful professional career. In the compulsory modules, the knowledge gained in the respective Bachelor’s degree will be solidified and complemented. The modules Space Flight Theory and Space Environment & Testing are designed to introduce the students to space engineering and lay the basis for the more advanced modules Satellite Systems and Subsystems. A course given by the concurrent engineering facility of the DLR institute is planned. In the elective modules, applications of space engineering to specific satellite systems will be covered.
Students are required to have English language skills as well as German language skills (see below) and to hold a Bachelor’s degree in engineering, physics, mathematics, or techno-mathematics with 210/180 credit points.
The University of Bremen is a public university in Bremen, Germany, with approximately 23,500 people from 115 countries. It is one of 11 institutions that were successful in the category “Institutional Strategies” of the Excellence Initiative launched by the Federal Government and the Federal States in 2012. The university was also successful in the categories “Graduate Schools” and “Clusters of Excellence” of the initiative.
Its commitment was rewarded with the title “Stadt der Wissenschaft 2005” (City of Science of 2005), which science, politics, business, and culture won jointly for Bremen and Bremerhaven, by the Foundation for German Science (Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft).
