Content Profile and Objectives

The international Master's Degree Programme Hybrid Electric Propulsion Technology, M.Sc. (HEPT) teaches the scientific approaches and techniques that enable graduates to develop technologies aimed at significantly reducing emissions in aviation and other mobility sectors. The Degree Programme is committed to the goal of internationality and interdisciplinarity. As part of the Master's Degree Programme, students are taught state-of-the-art knowledge about hybrid drive systems in order to prepare them for the expanding industries in the field of next-generation drive technology. In terms of content, the Programme focuses on the two main areas of engine technology and electrical drive technology as well as interdisciplinary study components that meet the requirements for employment in companies or scientific institutions in both fields.

In the Degree Programme, students acquire in-depth theoretical and practical engineering knowledge and skills in the fields of aircraft propulsion, electric propulsion technology, aerothermodynamics, combustion science, structural mechanics, design, production and approval procedures as well as life cycle analysis and control engineering. This enables students to work independently and in an interdisciplinary manner on tasks and problem solutions as well as to evaluate work results and processes, including the development of alternative courses of action and interactions with related subject areas.
