Alternative propulsion systems are essential for emission reduction as they offer a pathway to cleaner, more sustainable transportation, addressing both local air quality concerns and global climate change challenges. Hybrid Electric Propulsion Technology brings a promising solution toward decarbonization of the transport sector and emission-free mobility.
The Hybrid Electric Propulsion Technology master study program is designed for the first time at BTU to provide a comprehensive understanding of this interdisciplinary field, covering aspects from mechanical engineering to electrical and control engineering. The program's primary goal is to impart knowledge and expertise in Hybrid Electric Propulsion Technology, focusing on system design, analysis, and effective problem-solving. It aims to equip the young generation with the necessary skills to make significant contributions to the field by delivering the essential knowledge and capabilities for Hybrid Electric Propulsion Technology in aviation.
Within the study program, after gaining knowledge on general topics related to mechanical and electrical engineering, the students can choose between the two main directions of Propulsion engine technology, and Electric engine technology. The graduates will be able to work in different fields related to sustainable mobility worldwide such as academic and industrial research and development, design and manufacturing industries, and planning and policy-making organizations
