What is it?
The degree program qualifies graduates for demanding positions as engineers in small and medium-sized companies as well as in global enterprises, in particular aeronautical engineering companies, companies in the mobility sector and the electrical engineering industry.
In order to meet the requirements of a position at the interface between technology and management, graduates have comprehensive and integrated specialist knowledge in the field of system design and system integration using avionics as an example. As a special feature, the degree program offers practice-oriented content from the very first semester.
The basic principles of aircraft handling include basic flight maneuvers and procedures in the cockpit, which are taught on an aircraft and in cooperation with a flying school, the possibility to obtain a pilot's license (partly subject to a fee) and a modern flight simulator for practicing emergency and routine situations (free of charge).
In the subject area Multicopter and Model Aircraft, students learn how to build and control drones and how to avoid airspace violations.
What can I do with it?
In this degree program, students learn all the basic principles and acquire the skills required not only in general electrical engineering but also in other industries. The opportunities for our graduates are correspondingly wide-ranging and are therefore not limited to the aviation industry.
Topics such as safety (resilience and reliability) and security, electrical energy and drive systems as well as autonomous control systems for modes of transport (autopilot) are becoming increasingly important in all areas of the mobility sector. The Rhine-Main region, with Frankfurt Airport, Germany's busiest airport for general aviation in Egelsbach, the Frankfurter Kreuz as one of the busiest road junctions in Europe and more than ten ICE stations, plays a prominent role as a hub for national and international traffic. Many companies have therefore settled in the Rhine-Main area, in the immediate vicinity of RheinMain University of Applied Sciences, and are looking for graduates to develop solutions for the challenging problems of tomorrow's logistics and transportation issues.
A degree in electrical and aeronautical engineering qualifies graduates for a wide range of activities in the field of engineering and project management in large and small aeronautical and automotive engineering companies, with component suppliers, service providers, in industry-related companies and public authorities. However, you can also continue your pilot training after graduation and work as a professional pilot or flight instructor. The flight hours and authorizations completed and acquired during your studies can be credited towards your future training.
